 I honestly don't see how an Amphicar can go fast enough to keep you dry through a thunderstorm. On the other hand, check current prices on Amphicars v. TR3s; the difference will buy you a very nice clothes dryer...and a fair portion of a nice tidy little bungalow to keep it in! So...who really won? ;)

Many many years ago, I took a road trip in my TR3A, along with a buddy in an MGA.  I don?t think either of us even owned a top; let alone had room for it along with the suitcases and so on.

Driving down US 1 on the east coast, we saw a huge thunderstorm heading our way.  I apologized to my friend, then floored the TR and like the old song, wound it up to 110, knowing his MG wouldn?t top 85 on a good day (maybe downhill with a tail wind).  I stayed dry, guess who got soaked!

We?re still good friends after all these years, but he gave up on the MG and bought an Amphicar instead.
