Ice Fishing in July?

OK...this may not be the season for ice fishing (unless you are in the southern hemisphere), but we found this cool little car (mobile ice shanty) on a photographer's website, and couldn't resist showing it.

Tom Roering is an ice fisherman who invented a cool product: a lightweight amphibious vehicle that is also an ice fishing shelter. It’s called the Wilcraft (“Wil” stands for water, ice, and land). If it falls through the ice, it floats. It has room enough for two people to comfortably fish together. It can be adapted as an ice rescue vehicle. And it fits on the back of a pickup truck.
