Question Surprise Investment for The Lake House...

An auction for your new boating adventure with eight hours remaining to bid. I expect this "boat" to exceed $100,000!

https://bringatrailer.com/listing/19...r-model-770-3/

Nearly 40 HP! https://www.carfolio.com/amphicar-model-770-73997

Replace that steep walk from the beach with an object that increases in value?

Your right APs ............. 1:00pm and it's at $101k

That will certainly jump in the last 15 min of bidding.

Many (many) decades ago.

Grandpa took us to the Weirs by boat. To see the fireworks. Night time.

In the melee of boats roaming around Weirs bay was one of these.

AND. The boat driver turned on the directional (blinkers) lights to make a turn.

The Marine Patrol immediately turned on police lights and pulled car/boat over for violation. Apparently, red flashing lights (at that time) were illegal.

In the early 60's we saw one of these pass through Sallie's Gut...All the passengers were nuns in full habits and veils.

There are some things you'll remember forever.

Default Choices

If I was going to spend that amount of money (and I am not) this seems like a better choice. More practical, faster, and more useful. The price is in the same neighborhood.

But, there is something to be said about the heritage of the Amphicar.
