Sounds like you want an Amphi all right.
Well, I recommend our clubs classified
web page (www.amphicar.com) and our club
newsletter, and of course Ebay always has
something Amphi for sale (or 'sail' as the
case may be). Marina Del Rey... hmmmm
sounds salty, Amphicars tend to disolve
in saltwater or so I've been told. Anyway,
below is a tongue-n-cheek cost analysis
you may find helpful (or funny). Contact
me via email if I can be of further help.
