Triumph of floatation.


Recommended Posts

Back in the mid 80s, i built a Dutton Phaeton S3 kit car. Duttons built a range of kits using donor cars such as Triumph Herald and Spitfire, but then moved on to the more widespread Ford Escort mk1 + 2. They stopped producing the open roadsters, and utility looking models back in the 90s, but are now building Amphibious car kits, which were exibited at the Southampton Boatshow last year.




They had a cut away exibit, and i have to admit, although they don`t look like they`re a modern professional production vehicle, they did look quite well engineered (any more knowledgeable people please feel free to put me right) and robust. 


Personally, i`m torn between one of these, or a hovercraft.
