Meet the Amphicar of White Rock Lake
On Sunday afternoon, the Lakewood Advocate's Brittany Nunn was treated to her first glimpse of White Rock Lake's fabled Amphicar. She didn't know that it was an Amphicar -- an amphibious convertible produced produced briefly by a German company during the 1960s -- or that it was fabled, just that cars aren't supposed to go into the water.
Not sure who owns this particular vehicle, which is the same baby blue as Lyndon Johnson's model. There are several floating around North Texas (at least six), the most famous of which is probably the Texas Shark, which is also the only one sponsored by Hooter's and Redneck Heaven.
Now for the important question: Why don't they still make these things?
