If we can put men on the Moon, why not a car that can fly, or double as a boat or even a submarine?

All of those things have been done. A flying car is commonly known as an aircraft.
You really don't want to know about amphibious cars. The details aren't pretty, and neither were the vehicles.

Yes we have those, but no one has walked on the moon

Such things do exist, but in reality are pretty compromised at being either.
You can have a vehicle that is both a car and a boat, but it will be pretty rubbish as either a car or a boat, and for much less money you could have a better car and a better boat, and a trailer so the car can tow the boat.
A car that can fly requires a pilot's licence as well as a car licence, and somewhere to take off from and somewhere to land. And again is neither a good car nor a good aircraft.
The market for all of these things is so restrictive, that there is limited development budget, and the compromises will always exist.

All those things exist, they are expensive, but not nearly as expensive as travel to the Moon.

Flying cars have been invented. But they have not been able to pass all the government regulations and still keep the price reasonable.

There was a big rush to make flying cars in the '60's, the problem is, all such vehicles combined all the downsides of cars with all the problems of aircraft! Braking and turning, for instance, were the equivalent of airhockey with a VERY large puck!!!

They all exist. No one wants to buy them at the price. No one knows how to make them cheap.

It's done in every James Bond film. Just be very expensive, that's all.

They have already built a flying car and one that doubled as a boat. I don't think either proved out to be popular with the consumers.
