New Amphicar Article

This is just a heads up that there is a very nice article in the September
2000 issue of _Classic & Sports Car_ which features the Amphicar and two
other amphibians, the Dutton Commander and the Alvis Stalwart. The issue
should be available at your better newstands (I got mine at Barnes & Noble).
Those far from civilization or who encounter this message in the List's
archives at a later date can likely get a copy from: Haymarket Reprints, PO
Box 200, Abingdon, Oxon OX14 3FG, United Kingdon; Tel. 01235 534323.

Below is the item's record from the Amphicar.net Library Catalog (see
http://www.amphicar.net/library.html for more details).
