Amphi List Trivia / Update

Hi All,

I was just doing some cleanup of my PC and I ran
across some interesting trivia pertaining to the
Amphicar lovers digest.

The Amphi list came into being on July 27, 1998. Some
of the initial members, besides myself, included Bill
(Bilgemaster) Connelly, David Chapman, Randi Tusone,
Mike Echeman, and Doug Parsons. In the early days
most of the messages revolved around the high price of
Amphi parts. Of course there were also some inspiring
stories such as Bilgemaster's exorcism of the mice who
had taken up lodging in the Old Bouy. We all learned
to envy Mike Echeman for his ability to find low
mileage Amphis that had never seen water. Still, at
that time I was not sure if the list would stay
afloat! The challenge used to be in getting people to
post, these days the challenge is keeping up with the
messages.

As of today there are 3,444 messages not counting the
first six months before we started archiving. (those
do actually exist on a retired, dusty computer
somewhere in my basement). As of today, we now have
178 list subscribers.

The list was formed for the purely selfish reason that
I wanted to buy an Amphi and could not find much
information. These days Amphipoda provides us with
everything we ever wanted to know but were afraid to
ask. Mission accomplished!

Best Regards,

Mike Israel
65 Amphi (white)

Mike,

Thanks for the history of the list. I remember those days, and before,
when Huge was the only source of information for me stuck out here in South
Carolina. I also remember the section in the original Amphicar homepage
where a member could post a question and others could respond. I remember
that a new posting would appear at the top, and all others would move down
one. Once a question would fall below #10 it would disappear. Ten postings
were the limit. In spite of the limitations that seems to have relative to
the great list-serve we have now, in those days it was quite an inovation.
