ALERT: Mermaid Sighting
Seen riding on top of an Amphicar Model 770: Amphicar picture EXPLOSION!
Here's pictures of the rest of the fleet that was out that day and then at the bottom on dry land!
What is an Amphicar you may ask:
The Amphicar Model 770 is an amphibious automobile which was launched at the 1961 New York Auto Show, manufactured in West Germany and marketed from 1961 to 1968. Production stopped in 1965.
Designed by Hans Trippel, the amphibious vehicle was manufactured by the Quandt Group at Lübeck and at Berlin-Borsigwalde, with a total of 3,878 manufactured in a single generation.
A descendant of the Volkswagen Schwimmwagen, the Amphicar offered only modest performance compared to most contemporary boats or cars, featured navigation lights and flag as mandated by the US Coast Guard — and after operation in water, required greasing at 13 points, one of which required removal of the rear seat.
The Amphicar name is a portmanteau of "amphibious" and "car".
