This is one of my Amphicars. The company went under (pardon the pun!) in 1968 after only 3878 units.

Found this less than a mile down the road a few months ago. It followed me home one day and is now resting comfortably next to my Buick.....:)

1912 Reo the Fifth touring and 1914 Overland roadster. I like that Whippet posted earlier--was it ever in Hawkstone, ON? I remember seeing one there as a very young kid.
