If there are no holes in the floor pan and all the seals are good, VW Bugs will float. Right now, after what--30 or 40 years collecting pan holes and dry-rotted seals?--you should not try it. Oh yes...on the 1970 and later Bugs there are those little grilles behind the back windows. You've seen 'em, right? Volkswagen "officially" sez they're in there for ventilation. The real reason they're in there is because with the 1969s and earlier, that didn't have those vents, the car was sealed so tightly you couldn't slam the doors shut because they wouldn't latch if you tried it.
