I believe they would put it into one heck of an oversized box the size of a 52ft oversize trailer with hundreds of smaller boxes and miles of packing bubbles

Amphibian cars are only efficient with hydrofoils, and amphibian aircraft with them can handle much rougher seas.

I was actually refering to how it would operate, either from improvised runways or from the many rivers in the region in case an amphibian derivative eventually gets developed.

I think it was a play on the word 'Amazon".

Lycopodium is a great remedy for healing liver and gallbladder problems, and helps all kinds of digestive disorders. It is also used to help people suffering from issues of self-esteem. It is generally well tolerated in appropriate doses and potencies, with no adverse effects when taken according to directions.

Apparently some aftermarket mirrors with mystery aerodynamics added for your pleasure.

Put my Batman mirrors on today!

Stock mirror image below.

Perhaps the "Batman" mirrors deflect airflow into the cabin when the windows are open? Kind of like 1960's vent glass?

EDIT:

To answer your question they do get rid of the buffeting. Had the car up to 70 mph today and only one window down and absolutely zero buffeting
