Looks like one of those amphibious (sp?) cars that is also a boat.

Somewhere there is a thread on her about that or similar. Was he able to drive once he was on land, or was his engine down?

I am going to go out on a limb and say it was a Dobbertin Hydrocar (http://www.dobbertinhydrocar.com/DHC.htm).

It is a hydro \ car. My company painted it for the owner through his sponsor Dupont, it's Imron 5000. The owner talked me into summerizing my boat and being there for testing. He's been building it for 6 years. It features an all alluminum 572ci World products big block 790 hp. Built mostly from alluminum and stainless. The sponsons move up and down and the tires move down all at the flick of switch. The front tires are the drive tires because they need to hit the ramp first. Propelling it is a trick Arneson drive with a huge prop.

I was hopeing to be the first to ski behind it but issues with planeing squashed the idea. He had it on ebay recently at 700k. Sounds like alot of dollars but you guys that appreciate detail and engineering will appreciate this work of art. The owner is known as the God father of Pro-street cars from back in the 80's, Rick Dobberton. Interesting guy to talk with.

I remember getting spanked hard by a certain Mod last time I mentioned that program. My post was deleted too. Guess he no longer has the power and now only lurks.

Table Rocker got it!

Last summer I towed a 30 foot offshore twin boat from the lake 7 or so miles to a marina in my little 205. Towed it like a champ, the other boats captain was surprised offered to fill me up.... I was already full, dam.

Anyone else ever tow anything interesting? Competitors boat? Now that would be a picture worth posting.
