On one of those TV shows where they talk about cars they claimed Amphicars were not very good cars and were not very good boats but they did drive and they did float. I am fascinated by not only the concept but the confidence of the restorers that actually float these vehicles at different events. I expect that there might be some at Plunkett's next weekend. There is still time to go buy this one and take it for a cruise. Amphicar
Back when our son Andrew was still in a car seat we owned a 1977 Buick Riviera that I bought at a Canada Customs Auction. Apparently it had been seized at Canada Customs for some undisclosed reason. It was a Florida Car and I figured if it made it all the way from Florida it should be a good beater car. It had been questionably maintained and loved oil and had 2 rear axles with different bolt patterns - I had to swap one so I could run the Buick Ralleys - even a beater has to have matching wheels. I have written about sellers remorse before and although I don't miss THAT Riviera, I would love another one. 1977 Buick Riviera
If the Beverly Hillbillies had loaded up the truck and moved to Wisconsin, this might be their truck. Imagination required. Some assembly necessary. Price is right . How much would be left after trailering it through Chicago. Always wanted to get back to the Wisconsin Dells. Ford Model A truck
Well I am missing my suburban. Tonight we wanted to take the whole family to Retofest in Chatham and had to take 2 trucks. Now don't get me wrong it is pretty cool running the 67 and 64 together down the road but having to and not having a choice has me looking for a 4 or 5 seater. If older is better and local history rings sentimental you will like my pick for today.

Many years ago , Mike , Mario and I went south into Ohio to pick up a 49 Ford Coupe. The seller also had a really clean 51 Chev fastback and a 52 Chevrolet 3 door that had been built for one of the rail roads. It even had the name of the railroad stamped into the swinging tailgate. Unfortunately we only had room for one project but I have kept my eyes open for another railroad truck ever since. This one is not nearly as nice as that one and the shape of the doors don't make the 4 door styling as pleasing as the 52 was but it is still unique.
