    I qualify age wise, but I don't think I ever saw Gene's car. FWIW, Larry Green had an Aqua Car. You could drive it on the road, down a boat ramp, and into the water. It had propellers for in water...

    I wish I needed another scooter... That is a great deal. I will certainly pass along the opportunity to some of my dive Buddies. Somebody better grab this thing!

    Gene Broome. A name from the past for sure, along with the Branford Dive Shop. Test question for all you "old guys" on the forum---What famous brand of car did Gene drive back in the early 90's?

    That dive is way over my skill or comfort level but I really enjoyed watching it.

    Nobody has been able to run it down yet. It is like the Energizer bunny, it just keeps going and going.
