Ebay has helped me a lot. I have bought parts from all over the country
and have sold all over. I have been escrewed once but no worse than by
local trans guy. If a crook is going to steal he will. What ever
happened to guy with pics of perfect red Amphi that was actually rusted
chunk on east coast? On lighter note I finally escaped family and
headed toward river. Renewed I was able to complete my Christmas
shopping. As I looked at cranky looking people waiting in line, my
secret Amphicar smile crept across my face. You get so much better
service from clerks when you are genuinely happy. Merry Christmas Dave

Fw: [AMC_Eagle] Ebay

I recently joined the yahoo AMC Eagle group just to check it out since I've
owned many AMC's in the past including a few very good Eagle Wagons. The
posting below came in and I thought some of you might find in interesting. Is
this guy adventurous or is he showing a serious lack of judgment????

Well, in the future I'll try for closer Eagles I think.

I wen to tpick it up, driving nonstop the trip took 30 hours. Among other
things a stray dog we picked up puked on me, etc... it was fun. Anyway I had
forgotten the address and phone number of the guy in Oregon who had the car,
oops.

Anyway I finally ofund the street and got the Eagle. The exterior was perfect,
but the interior, headliner, armrests seats, etc were all covered with mold. It
ran fine and the transmission wasn't in too bad shape. The car would clearly
make it to Chicago OK... I thought...

We started home via 90 through montana, which was great until we got to wyoming.
The roads were 100% covered with ice, and we discovered the 4wd wasnt working.
My friend Kelly, who was assisting with the driving (i brought 3 friends to make
the 60 hours easier), was in control of the Eagle and I was driving the 98 New
Beetle a few hours later... uphill on ice, a check of my rear view mirror was
just in time to see Kelly fly to the left, and then back across the lanes into
the guard rail. Damage to the Eagle was minimal; hit the rail head on and Eagle
bumpers are pretty tough it seems. Jimmy was also in the car, seatbeltless and
he busted himself up a bit; shattered the rear view mirror with his ear.

Anyway we get going again, with a more experienced driver on the rear-wheel
drive Eagle. Wyoming is relentless, we are literally the only traffic on 90 at
2am or so. I've never seen roads so bad, we're moving at 30mph. Finally I stop
at the side of the road, to wait for Jimmy to catch up in the Eagle so I can ask
if we should find another route since this may be too dangerous... As Jimmy
tries to stop the Eagle spins and flies 30 feet off the road into a ditch,
where, 4wd-less, it becomes stuck. Every gas station and truck stop is closed,
and we end up having to drive 70 miles to the nearest Walmart for a tow cable
and salt. Several hours later, the BEETLE drags the Eagle out of the ditch.

We continue, this time taking 25 to 80 instead of risking the rest of 90. It's
no better, rather, it worse. We can't move the Eagle any faster than 10mph or
so. Reverse and Drive also were broken after the spills, only '1' and '2' work
now. Eventually we try deflating the tires for traction; the road is so
slippery a running start on foot will let you slide for no less than 45 feet.
The deflated tires only worsen the issue. rt 25 is looming ahead, it becomes
clear we will never get the Eagle back in good time.

We are at this point, out of money, time and options. We're already a day late,
and theres no way we can take the time for a tow or crawling the whole way...

Defeated, we maneuver to the top of a large hill, shift the Eagle into neutral
and Heave Ho!! She rolls for a few hundred feet and comes to rest in the
median... the saddest thing I ever saw. If anyone wants an Eagle, theres one
in the Southbound median of I25 in Wyoming; keys and title in the car.

::cry:: God is against me having an Eagle, this is the second one that failed
to make it home.

Hi Rob
My brother and I were at Hershey. I saw an Aqua Amphi that was going to go
thru the auction. I think it had a "No Reserve" sticker on the windshield. I
figure to look in Old Cars Weekly to see how much it went for. The Hershey
weather was like Florida this year - great (no not like a hurricane !) Hope all
is
going well. Vic

Well, I have to agree with Gord's assessment
of Ebay on this particular point:

"I find it entertaining to go on and see what's
selling etc."

It's like doing a flea market or swap meet without
having to leave your comfy chair and frosty beer.
I've even been known to toss a few precious items
up for auction meself.

Be well, swim safe.

>We are putting together an Amphi in want of complete restoration.
Actually TWO Amphis will be sold as one. First is a nearly complete
(missing horn) raised lip Amphi. This car runs, motor smokes, trans is
used as is but believe to be good. Nice steel hood, good rebuildable
doors, all windows and hardware move. Drivers needs a new gear. Window
frames are solid needing rechrome or paint Nice windshield. Nice front
clip, Seat frame is complete but will also need some tlc. Top frame
is
above average. I am also including a good gas tank, rechromed Amphicar
scripts, Nicer rear lights. Will have all side trim. Nice props.
Engine
cover will be useable but with understanding that it is poor
condition.
Can be blocked out for "daily driver" but will need to be replaced for
show. Decent steering wheel too. Has enough rust in rear hull area to
make this a challenge Amphi. So Cigar Guy "donated" his shell and
title.
His shell has a lot more steel in it. So in next few days or so ,
Maybe
after Fabula Sabula this car will be hitting Ebay. I gaurantee it
beats
the last car by leaps and bounds. Plus I gaurantee that I have built
tougher cars that are still happily floating! Later Dave the Wave
