    Last year we took a river cruise in Europe on the Rhine.

    On a Sunday morning we see all these amphib cars coming down the river.
    It was some sort of amphib car club and was pretty cool.
    Later in the day, on shore, we saw another car club gathering and a motorcycle club.....all cruising the country side.

    Car clubs over seem to be a big deal and they get out on nice weekends and...........cruise.
    Unlike our cruises where we go and sit.

    It's an Amphicar fast attack fleet!

    There was a tale, I think it was on the History Channel, one of those deals. It was about Lyndon B. Johnson. He had a sense of humor.

    Lemme see how to make this shorter.....There was a young guy vying for some sort of a cabinet position in Johnson's administration. Johnson required that they meet at his ranch instead of at the White House. The young guy complied, showed up on time and Johnson said, "Hop in, I want to show you the ranch."

    Well, it was one of those Amphi - Aqua Cars, whatever they called them. Johnson drove the guy around pointing at cows and stuff and they got to a pond. The "road" went down to the pond, like a boat ramp. They started down the hill toward the pond and Johnson started pretending to pump the brakes, hollering, "We've got no brakes, we've lost the brakes!"

    The passenger was of course terrified. SPLASH into the water and the car just kept on going, motoring around. And the guy got the job.

    Cool pics! My understanding is that Amphicars were not very good cars and worse boats but they seems to have these ones working. I'd like to do a European river cruise some day but racing and seeing Grandkids seems to take precedence.
