Paul if You have any concerns just park next to Me at any swim in. Enjoy
the varied colors on doors, touch the yellow was black fuzzys, Caress
the scratched windshield. Massage the multiple dents, scars, and
unsanded bondo, smile at the mile of radio wire, poke the hole in the
top, cut yourself on the rusted hood, estimate the fuel level, then
hold on for a wild wet ride in what is the Worlds Best Amphicar. Truly
an unrestored Amphi!!! Plan on going to Fabula Sabula Iowa Spring of 07.
Oh to be able to relive some of last years highlights. Got to get back
to Poopies! WINTER SUCKS and it has not started! Later Dave the Wave

[...snip!] After talking to the group i don,t feel so bad about not having
the perfect rebuilt amphy. Paul

===================

Paul:

Indeed...Not to worry about having a so-called "Perfect Amphicar". I doubt
there's ANY other club devoted to an auto marque whose membership is
overwhelmingly LESS interested in slavish originality than the Amphicar
Club. Truly...If you want to bolt on a vibrating pink gurken-shaped bass
fishing chair to the deck or place in-line tuned whoopee cushion
sounder-flappies to your twelve-part exhaust resembling the Fountains of
Tivoli festooned overall with urinating cherubim bilge pump outlets, and
then paint the whole plot in a velvety glow-in-the-dark puce-highlit 3D
plaid, then that's what most of us would certainly consider "useful
improvements" and "personalizations" without so much as a second thought
about "What would Hanns Trippel think?" It drives?...Floats?...Having
fun?...Prima.

No, what is actually cheesing off many folks about that Amphi under
discussion is the bare-assed misrepresentation for suckers of a clearly piss
poor slapdash "pseudo-restoration" as some kind of flawless hyper-priced
Amphicar that's somehow emerged from a time capsule or something, when it's
patently clear from the pix that nothing could be further than the truth.

So, we'll see you in Celina with nary a raised eyebrow, and I get to try to
play "Lady of Spain" on your wonder exhaust, deal?

Paul,

I did all of the work on my 1964 Amphicar (Das Boot) myself except for
the seat upholstery. It certainly does not have the "laser straight"
bodywork that most cars on ebay seem to brag about recently, but this
sucker runs, drives and floats just fine! After all, that Amphicar is
the only car in the world that is allowed to have bodywork that is a
little "wavy". ;^)

Here is the story of its restoration:

Later!
