We sell the Top Gear Book Daft Cars, primarily because my Dad had the car on the front of the book when i was a kid, The Amphicar.
This was in the early 80's when they were already a bit of a rarity.
If I remember rightly there were only 7 working ones in the U.K.
It is easy to see why, Dad was always working on it and after every trip in it, it needed to be worked on again!
It always felt like it was sinking when it was going along in the water, and it actually did a couple of times . You also needed an enormous 4X4 to yank it back out of the water, which is not ideal.
For all of its faults it was great fun and exciting to go out in , not least because none of us including my dad could swim.
It certainly drew a crowd, though because it really did look like a triumph herald that had accidentally driven into the water and was somehow managing to keep going!
