AMPHICAR RIDES

Amphibious autos take three passengers at a time over land and into the lake and back.

The Amphicar, built in West Germany for sale to the public, looks like a regular sports convertible but has a waterproof bottom and sides, and twin propellers. Fairgoers ride down a ramp into Meadow Lake; after a short cruise they are back on land again, safe and dry.

Added for the 1965 season, the Amphicar was neither a very good car nor a very good boat. Having said that, though, can your car take you on a nice spin around a lake? These amphibious vehicles were a hit with both riders and photographers. (CD #17 Set 90 #26)
