Stevie Johnson owns what I’m sure will be the most envied powerboat ever. It might seem strange to be discussing a boat on a car blog, but this particular boat is different. This is a boat built for a car lover.
One half lobster boat, one half 1994 Pontiac Sunbird convertible, the water has never seen anything like Stevie Johnson’s unique creation. The cool blue Pontiac Sunbird is mounted to the top of the boat, and the vehicle is rigged up so that Stevie can drive the boat from the front seat of the car. While it is not the fastest boat in the Maine lobster boat races, Stevie’s boat dubbed the “Sunbird” is drawing crowds and admirers wherever he goes.
Stevie has a history of racing unconventional vehicles in Maine lobster boat races. He has taken on competitors in a seaplane, and back in 2009, he told the Wall Street Journal that he was looking into purchasing an Oscar Mayer Weinermobile. There is no word as to whether he successfully acquired that Weinermobile, but I can only imagine what kind of boat he planned to build out of it.
