Sad story...

While I was south of Denver today, I met a guy who builds Minis and
such, told me of an Amphi that met a horrible end. Seems that this red
Amphicar sat for who knows how long near there. The resevoir is 1/2
mile away.

In or about 1992 the guy who owned it tried to give it to him. He did
not have any interest in it either. They then DROVE it to the crusher
that was a few blocks away, removed the starter, distributer and misc
parts and watched it get crushed. OUCH!!!
