Is there any way to find some of the workers that worked at Amphicar
in Germany and have questions put to them? These cars aren't all
that old (showing my age now) that someone from the plant is still
alive and that they may have answers to some of our questions.
Rene, Has this been tried before?

=========

This is just as an addendum to the above suggestion. I imagine that Ren?
and almost certainly the Berlin-resident members of the German Club must
have been in contact with many of the former Amphicar factory staff over the
years. But it just so happens that when I lived in Berlin about 15 years
ago I bought my motorscooter (a '57 Z?ndapp Bella that I still have in a now
sorry state of disrepair) from a fellow who told me he used to work at the
Amphicar factory...Of course, this was long before I had an Amphicar or much
interest in them, so I didn't really quiz him about it. I only remember his
mentioning that they had a lot of problems with leaking and that the seals
were very important.

Judging by the location and size of this fellow's house back then and the
various sketches he provided of modifications such as signal lighting
expertly done to the scooter, I would guess that he was probably not just
some grease monkey on the Amphicar factory floor, but probably an engineer
or someone else similarly knowledgeable. His name was Altmann.

If Ren? is interested, I would be happy to provide him with the address I
still have for Herr Altmann in Berlin. If so, please contact me off-list.
