AMPHICAR

Hi everyone,

Well, today, April 15, 2001, I finally took the plunge, thanks to the
generosity of Steve and John. I rode in Steve's red Amphi and my friend
Matt rode in John's blue Amphi. As we wheeled down the boat launch,
there were at least twenty faces staring at us from the dock and shore.
As we neared the water, a girl maybe about twelve standing on the dock
said something like, "are you going to go in the water?" Steve
responded, "yes," and without missing a beat the girl said, "why,"
which, I thought, was pretty funny. Trying to think of something to say,
I said, "for fun."

As we plunged into the water, I couldn't believe it. We didn't sink. I
was already at that point amazed that you sealed the door with only the
turn of a handle, and now we were floating. As we cruised Lake Miramar,
I was really amazed.

Suffice it to say, I am amazed. And I want one.

For me the next step is going to be to educate myself more about how
these little guys work, and research the archives for more information
and stories about how they work. I am concerned about the maintenance,
and before I plunge in, I want to make sure this is something I'd feel
confident enough to work on, being only semi-mechanically inclined. At
the same time, they are so cool! I do also have to make sure this is
something I can afford. The search begins.

I want to express my thanks to this list, and especially to Steve and
John for allowing myself to tag along for a list. Thanks, you guys!!!

Dear cool car owner. Must be nice to have a car and boat in one. I haven't
even ridden in one of these little cool cars but I'm sure I would like it. I
currently have a 1982 Delorean and 1992 corvette convertible. An Amphicar in on
my want list. I'm semi retired and just like cars. I don't think the Delorean
will even float. It is fun anyway.

I would like to attend a car show with participating Amphicar owners there. Let
me know if there is one planned this spring. Yes, I said spring. If I ignore
winter it will go away.
Oh well.

Ahoy George!

Apart from announcements on this List, you'll find a roster of upcoming
Amphicar events and gatherings at the International Amphicar Owners Club
website's 'Events Calendar' at http://www.amphicar.com/calendar.htm .

Just now the sailing season is drawling to a close for many of us, but if
you keep checking the Calendar you'll find some events in your neck of the
woods announced sooner or later. In the meantime, there are several
Amphicars currently up for sale at a variety of prices on the Club's
Classifieds at http://www.amphicar.com/ads.htm .
