• All, You may notice that the site looks a bit different. This evening I performed a major software update which improves some things and has the opposite effect on some others. The old software version will no longer be supported so it was not really a choice. One down-side is that the new release breaks most of the Add-Ins and style sheets which will have to be reinstalled (and repurchased in many cases). The biggest loss is that the feature to receive all new posts by email is no longer supported. I will likely implement another option which will let users subscribe to either a daily or weekly digest. You will notice enhanced support for attachments, ability to bookmark posts and a more mobile friendly experience. If you do discover something that is not working as it should, please let me know. I did have to switch to some new anti-spam components and am keeping fingers crossed that they are as effective as the old ones without blocking legitimate users. Keeping the balance is kind of like trying to design a car that both drives and swims! Thanks, Mike

I made a promise when I bought red 66. That I would resell when
done. Timing really is everything. I spent plenty of time and money on
red 66 and people only wanted to pay a project price. Then a solid 64
showed up and left. Then the Brown Wonder left. Margie said if it sold
there was no reason I couldn't keep the 66. We had survived that
bilgeing crap winter and no longer needed to look at low ball silly
offers. Then the awesome green car arrived and like telepathy the phone
started ringing with offers I could not turn down. Then out of the blue
a call came in for red 66. No dickering, no silly questions. I looked at
house projects thought of how Margie felt when Brown Wonder followed me
home. I did what I felt would benefit the family most.
In less than four weeks every Amphi I had
became someone else's. We were at store and I found myself looking at
short paddles. Ray goes you need to get an Amphicar quick! It is a most
definite with drawl. I had calendar set for shows and events. It is the
first time in my life were our own car was finished. What the future has
in stock is any ones guess. I was really looking forward to more
cruising
in a really nice car and feel the depression settling in. I have leads
on
a couple of cars but it is a huge job trying to get one close to being
done in
less than 60 days. Plus I have a couple others that need to be finished.
This feeling really really sucks. Later Dave the temporarily wave less
wave.

Hey, Dave. MetalBeast is going to be a better than top-notch restoration.
I've only the hoods to "rehang" and trim to reinstall.

Let's see if I understand how America works lately . . .

If a woman burns her thighs on the hot coffee she was
holding in her lap while driving, she blames the restaurant.
If your teen-age son kills himself, you blame the rock 'n' roll
music or musician he liked.
If you smoke three packs a day for 40 years and die of lung
cancer, your family blames the tobacco company.
If your daughter gets pregnant by the football captain you
blame the school for poor sex education.
If your neighbor crashes into a tree while driving home
drunk, you blame the bartender.
If your cousin gets AIDS because the needle he used to
shoot up with heroin was dirty, you blame the government
for not providing clean ones.
If your grandchildren are brats without manners, you blame
television.
If your friend is shot by a deranged madman, you blame
the gun manufacturer.
If a crazed person breaks into the cockpit and tries to
kill the pilots at 35,000 feet, and the passengers kill him
instead, the mother of the deceased blames the airline.
And if Dave the Wave is Amphi-less at Celina 2001, it's
because Celina came too quickly this year.
I must have lived too long to understand the world as it is
anymore. So if I die while my old, wrinkled butt is parked
in front of this computer, I want you to blame Bill Gates, OK?

Dave - you know what you have to do... may the Amphi Gods
help you and speed your recovery back into amphibious life.
