    McGuyver Starr was a Taxi Driver, whose life was really pretty dull. Actually, each day was fairly bleak and secretly he wondered if he was ever going to go very far, until the day he bought his brand new, second-hand, Lagoon Blue Amphicar! He’d never really thought about it, but deep inside McGuyver had a raging surfie streak; he was searching for a set of wheels to match his identity; something that spoke of the sea, yet made a statement that he was unique! By the time children read to the end of this book, they will be veritable authorities on the remarkable German-built Amphicar, which rolled off the assembly line in 1961 but had ceased production by 1968.
