What odd behavior to collect so many, and let them just decay. Doesn't
seem like there would be much pleasure in just letting them rot in
secret like that. Having said that, I really liked picture
MVC-523S...the Amphis look like puppies peeking out of a basket!

'64 Das Boot...which is glad it is not moldering away in the lunatic
collection!

Actually the cars are not getting worse.He has travelled to country
and picked up these cars in the condition you see them,he is slowly
attempting to bring each back to life.They look worse then they are
because it is so dark in the warehouse.They are all being moved from
Boston to NH. where the environment will be better for storing
them.As soon as he noticed there was a leak in the roof,the removal
process began.I will post more pics when they arrive at the new
warehouse. Randy

Re: Re: check out the photos of "warehouse amphicars"

Personally, I'm glad that this fellow who values his privacy has been making
his rounds through the decades buying up mostly clapped out Amphicars and
giving them a dry and secure repository to wait out their eventual
resurrections. Otherwise, most of them would have found their way into
crushers by now.

Thinking in the longterm, I say more power to him. Your great-grandkids may
be having fun in one of those Amphis someday that might otherwise have ended
up as a manhole cover.
