The Amphibious Car

I caught these AmphiCars cruising around the docks in Gravenhurst at the annual antique boat show this past weekend. These bad boys were manufactured in Berlin, Germany from 1962 to 1967. Only about 4500 were ever built with most of the production going to the USA. I would like to know how they would handle the wake of a 31ft  Ditchburn

    I remember going to the Automotive Building at the CNE with my parents and begging my Dad to buy one of these.
    I love seeing them each year.

    Your photography inspires me Ed.
    I especially love the train trestle shot from Parry Sound.
    I take better pictures after touring around your blog.

    As always a great shot…
    Aren’t these Amphi cars fun…an acquaintance of mine used to have one…don’t know if they still do but I remember seeing it many times over the years!

    Hope the Antique Boat Show had descent weather and turn out… Saturday morning,(after a ferocious thunder storm during the night from 2:30am until 6:00am)ended up with slight drizzle until 7:00am and then it eventually turned sunny and was a rather nice morning…thank goodness!!!
