God bless them. What determination and ingenuity. I came over in 1963. Was fortunate to be in an airplane. Lost a propeller over England, made emaegency landing. Some good soul bought us a cup of coffee at the airport. We were spoiled compared to these folks. Brings back memories.

Yep, acccording to the article there were 11 souls aboard the converted 1950 Buick tailfin boat/car. One of the two men who did the conversion was named Marciel Lopez who has a cousin living in Lake Worth, Florida named Kiriat Lopez. When asked, Kiriat said, "My cousin isn't crazy, he wants to be free. That's how crazy he is".
