    If seeing those things in the water doesn’t make you smile than nothing will!

    One wave over the side and I bet they sink like a rock!

    Anyone with a cruiser near by to test my theory?

    At some point you really should make a decision.  Car or boat.  But yes they do make you smile.

    Ha – I rode in an Amphicar along the Mississippi / Minnesota River through St. Paul, Minnesota once, where the waves were splashing over the windshield from adjacent river boats… 

    What a thrilling experience that was!  It was good to get back to dry land.

    Anyone know what happens when the cabs of these things fill. Do they sink like a rock?  Or is there other buoyancy?

    I had no idea that these “cars” were equipped with a stern flag pole.

    Pretty cool.

    Must we assume that it was standard equipment in order to assist the authorities to pin point exactly where she went down. Not saying they will, but just in case ??

    A good friend of mine here in Minneapolis has one. They have half dozen members in their amphi club. They have a blast. I’m an honorary member for jumping in one while it was rolling away and saving it from certain demise. It’s the only car you can legally drink in.

    Alex,  I heard someone here in LCI has one of these but I’ve never seen it out.  Gave you?
