Thanks Marc, we sure enjoyed receiving and reading our new copy of
the International Amphicar Owners Club newsletter. It is a
professional publication. Lots of good reading and photos too.
I just don't know what they put in the water down in San Diego, maybe
we can get some shipped up here. Great story John.
Allan & Pam sure have a good-looking car and from the photo, they had
quite a job getting it that way. Thanks for the story and photos.
Question: What is silicone bronze?
Does anybody ever use the chat feature on Monday nights anymore?

Thanks Marty! I didn't realize anyone
actually read my column. And I agree
the newsletter is the best piece of
mail I get all month. As for the
San Diego water... its been used and
abused from Canada all the way down
the California aquaduct right into
our little lake (Miramar). That's
the same lake Amphi swims in, so one
might conclude it's part of the
evolutionary process of becoming an
amphibian - swim in the water and
then drink the very same water.
Oh, and do read my repost of "The
Water We Drink & Amphi" shown below;

The Water We Drink & Amphi
Dated: Mon, 11 Jun 2001 11:00:48

When at a restaurant in San Diego we have
to actually ask for water. I did ask and did
receive a glass of water. Deep in contemplation
I pondered the water... the water that which
gives Amphi his playground. Literally the water
Amphi frolics in every weekend. Lake Miramar
is the water supply for a large portion of Northern
San Diego county, including the cheesy Mexican
restaurant in which I formulated these thoughts.
So here before me, a cool refreshing glass of iced
water, something Amphi and I played in perhaps
yesterday, perhaps last week, perhaps last month.
On a molecular level there are undoubtedly trace
elements of Amphi in this very glass of ice water.
For that matter, a part of Amphi dwells in every
glass of ice water on every table in this cheesy
Mexican restaurant. And in all the iced drinks as
well - Margaritas, Mai-Tais, and Panty Rippers
to name a few. I reckon Amphi's molecules are,
and have been, ingested by my fellow San Diegians
for the better part of 3 years now. That's pretty
awesome when you stop to think about it - a part
of Amphi is in me, in Mermaid, and in pretty much
everyone we know, assuming they don't drink and
bath in bottled water all the time. Now I'm thinking
here could be a great way to boost the Amphicar Club
funds with the sale of "Amphi Water." No doubt my
fine finned friends you are all well aware that bottled
water is more expensive than gasoline and could be
a tremendous financal & public relations boost for
our little club. I've even come up with the perfect
sales slogan...

Are you ready?

Okay, here it is...

<tt>Im an owner of a '64 that I have been restoring for about a year
now, and I have been a member of this forum for about the same
amount of time. I dont say much, but Ive learned alot from reading
the postings.

Ive had the opportunity to meet many folks from around the country
(s), but Ive yet to meet up with a Texas contingent. If there is
such a thing, and If they get together, Id appreciate hearing from

Im about 75% complete( I know, devils in the details), but I did get
the engine running this weekend after a 35 year hibernation.

Thanks, Bill Todd

BTW- the amphi car on the back of the boat that was pictured on the
amphi clubs web page is owned by a friend of mine Jacques Rougerie.
Jacques is a fun loving french undersea architect that Im working
with. He has had it about 12 years and it was restored in France.
The amphi sits on the back of his houseboat ( or pineche) in the
Seine in downtown Paris. He uses ramps to drive it on shore, but can
also lift it with a crane to put it in the river. Its quite a sight
driving down the Champs-Elysee.


Hi all: Has anyone in Texas received their newsletter? I haven't. Marc.
