The Only Car With A Built-In Bilge Pump

These people are not desperately calling for help, but you wouldn’t know that unless you remember the Amphicar. I was about 13 when they started importing these into the US, and I desperately wanted one.
I remember pleading with my father to get one. I told him the color didn’t matter, I’d accept Beach White, Regatta Red, Lagoon Blue or Fjord Green. His verdict: it was a terrible car, it was a terrible boat, I was a terrible swimmer; there was nothing to discuss.
When I think of all the fun I’ve missed, I want one all over again. They could start building them tomorrow. All they’d have to do is change the tag line on their ad…
