    World's 1st High Speed Amphibian

    Quite amazing, wheels retract to become a speed boad capable of 30mph on water... transition time 6 seconds...(and still manages 0-60mph in 10 seconds)

    If it ain't broke, use a 12" shifter.....that usually does the trick!!

    Why wouldn't you just buy an MX5 and a yacht?

    That's been mentioned on here before.
    It has a V6 with an autobox and the boat propulsion is by jet.
    Anyone here got a pic of an Amphicar? They had Triumph Herald running gear, were steered inthe water by the front wheels acting as rudders, and had twin props under the back bumper. Crazy!
    Pugs Rule!
