    (CNN- Reuters) -- Aquatic auto mission is now
    two fold - delivery and rescue!

    Preparations are under way for the launch of an
    Amphicar 770 on April 28 from the Amphipoda
    Mission Control Center (AMCC), San Diego.
    The mission is scheduled to last 3 to 4 hours.

    The Amphi will carry a three-member crew to
    deliver a Mexican-built glass cylinder containing
    premium aged Tequila to the Floating Island
    Research Sanctuary (FIRS). AMCC calls it a
    "Tres Generation Tequila, similar to, but more
    potent than top shelf brands commonly consumed."

    In the second part of the mission, the Amphi crew
    will pick up an ailing member of the FIRS team
    that is no longer able to function due to traumatic
    hair loss. Professor Roland Rogaine PhD, has been
    suffering from excessive hair loss for several months
    now and has requested emergency evacuation from
    the FIRS facility to seek a hair transplant operation.
    AMCC calls this "The mission of mercy aspect of
    the journey."

    The Amphicar 770 is a specially designed vehicle
    that has both land and water capability. It is out
    fitted with twin nylon screws and delivers an incredible
    43 horsepower at top speed. According to AMCC,
    "When it moves, it will be unlike anything seen before
    on the water." The importance of this mission cannot
    be overstated. By successfully delivering the Tequila
    and rescuing the ailing FIRS member, the Amphicar
    will garnish much needed publicity for future funding.
    Sources close to CNN and Reuters have disclosed
    unconfirmed reports indicating possible US military
    applications of the Amphicar 770 in surveillance
    along the coast line of China.
