In 1957, the East German Trabant car was first introduced to the public. It was lightweight and made mostly of plastic. The leaders of East Germany envisioned it as communism's answer to the VW Bug. Sadly, it was a colossal failure in terms of performance and safety. Still, it managed to survive the Cold War and now the vehicles are collectors' items.

While some choose to keep them locked up in pristine condition, others do this with them...

The firefighters in Oppin, Germany, decided to hook the lightweight car up with angled water hoses -- and turned the pressure up. The result? A literal flying car.

It's cool, but I don't really see the point.

Also...isn't that a huge waste of water? Silly Germans.
