Based on those pictures, global warming can't get here soon enough.

Waiting for the heat.

Those look like the "needs minor restoration" Amphis you see on eBay!

Dave- I hope that snowbaby is at least sitting in a tub of warm water. With
the FL Coast Guard numbers, what is all that white stuff in the picture? Vic
with the "Split Personality"
Vic - That is "SNOW" We get a lot of it here in Colorado. We even got some more for Christmas! I know you may be a bit unfamiliar with it so I'll describe it as best I can. CCCCCCcccccccold and a pain in the ... ;)

That FL Amphicar was originally from in Cleveland and spent some time in FL at the original owners (Amphicar dealer x2) son's home. I purchased it a couple years ago along with a literal truck load of parts and memorobilia. This car has a historical story with it. As it turns out it was on hand to be used be the Beatles to drive up to the stage in Cleveland in Aug 1966. This was yet another show that the fans rushed the stage and the show was delayed for a few hours. This is the point when the Beatles decided no more live shows would be done and concenquently the next show 2 weks later @ Candlestick Park would be the final public live concert.

I hope to restore it in a few years. Right now I have a 2 year customer waiting list so I don't see it happening any time soon.
 
I really like your list of toys.....too cool

But the last pictures I saw of Lake Lanier were almost
as scary as the snow.

My boss is in atlanta and trying to get me to move
there. I'd like the warmer weather but not sure I'd
enjoy the drought.

On the plus side, the Amphicar is rapidly becoming the only practical vehicle for boating on Lake Lanier. How else are you going to drive from the boat ramp to the water? :D
