Y'know, the Gator and the Watercar and the like are very cool in their
own way, but for some reason I just cannot imagine people getting as
excited to see one of those launch as they would an Amphicar. Perhaps it
is because the Amphi is so car like, that it seems a miracle when it
does work. I think most people realize that if you throw enough money at
creating a fiberglass car boat, of course you can make it do both. That
does not mean that it will have the same goofy charm as a mid-sixties
hunk of iron floating in the water with the wheels dangling down. I
dunno...but Das Boot makes people smile when it is miles from
water....the Gator will never do that.
