<span class="265114901-26012006"><font face="Arial" size="2">The $85,000 Amphi on eBay received a final bid of $59,800. Thiswas for a nice, but not perfect, Amphicar. This means that a professionally restored Amphi is probably worth over $70,000 which isalmost twice what they were going for when I boughtmy firstin 1999.</font></span>

<span class="265114901-26012006"><font face="Arial" size="2">We can debate the issue as to whether the price increase is a good or bad thing for Amphicar owners, but my question is what is a good swimmer worth? I see project cars and high cars being sold, but good condition swimmers are rare, probably because we hate to part with them.</font></span>

<span class="265114901-26012006"><font face="Arial" size="2">For insurance purposes, what should we be suggesting is the value of a nice, but no means perfect, fun Amphi?</font></span>

>Snip--- I don't believe those bids were legit. The reserve was proably
$200. more than the high bid. The next highest bidder has a feed back
of only 1, with 3 retracted bids within the last 3 months. Also he is
in the USA & why wouldn't he bid on the nicer red one in the US for a
buy it now of47,900.?Tom "blugill & Finzilla
