Russ Cihlar’s pet project is part car, part boat… 50-50 surf and turf. He discovered his first Amphicar as a teenager and 10 years later had a dream about it. So Russ purchased the car from a Door County farmer and for 14 years tore it apart and rebuilt it. He’s been cruising the Sturgeon Bay Ship Canal and turning heads ever since.
Russ has a fascination with military vehicles. In addition to his interest in rebuilding his Amphicar, Russ has rebuild nearly a dozen military vehicles across several military encounters and time periods. Join Russ on a tour of his storage garage where his military vehicles are displayed.
