Countdown Clock to Amphicar Forums Shutdown


Hello Gang:

My Amphicar has been delivered from Canada and I have successfully
negotiated the glazed eyed clerks of the Department of Motor
Vehicles. I have visited my local marine supply store and I believe
that I am now Coast Guard approved.

kids (and myself) were strapped in while on the road.

Thanks for any advice -- serious advice, that is!

Pep Boys at $32, and welding of the beam for about $40. The only other
things needed were to paint the beam with antirust spray paint and to cut
holes in the floor for the eye bolts to appear. I decided not to do rear
