If you’ve been trying to decide whether to buy a car or a boat, then Amphicar may just be the solution to your dilemma. The brainchild of Hanns Trippel and descendant of the military Schwimmwagen, Amphicar was the world’s first mass-produced amphibious vehicle.

Under the motto “Space, Spirit, Splendor,” 1960 Chevy Impala received new features like an electric brake parking light, electric clock, and back-up lights.

But let’s delve into the oil crisis a bit. 1973 Oil Embargo severely strained the US economy that had grown heavily dependent on foreign oil imports. The decision to boycott America led the price of crude oil to rise from $3 to $12 per barrel by 1974. As a result, the price of gas skyrocketed and the availability of the latter drastically decreased. Politicians called for a national rationing program. When then-President Nixon asked gas stations owners to stop ... Continue Reading →
