Amphicar on the Seine River

You can only imagine my surprise when visiting Paris, France last week and cruising the Seine River in a tour boat when I noticed an AMPHICAR on the back of a barge docked on the side of the river!

Unbelievable!

Hi Ed,
This Seine Amphicar is notorious, and has been there for many years. I saw it on that same barge about six years ago, when I visited Paris, and others told me that they had seen it for years before that. I don't know who owns it or whether it has ever been placed into the water.
