Hopefully I struck a deal last night. I have wanted a Kaiser Darrin for
about 30 years. These are totally cool fiberglass bodied cars with doors
that slide into fenders. The guy that owns it has wanted an Amphicar for
as long as he could remember. So maybe just maybe there will be another
restored Amphi and another restored Darrin. Later Dave the Wave

In case anyone's wondering just what a Kaiser-Darrin is all about, they can
check out http://www.wearsch.com/darrin.htm , or
http://ben1937.tripod.com/PAGE8.html in the "Featured Cars" section of the
the Kaiser-Frazer Owners Club website. There's also a bit more on the
history of the marque and a superb shot of the interior, dash and
fender-sliding door about midway down the page at
http://www.americansportscars.com/darrin.html . Now you tell me: If you
squint a bit, don't the dash and steering wheel and the whole layout rather
resemble an early-model Amphicar's...And what's THAT between the two left
guages on the dash? IS that a bilge pump indicator lamp? Could it be? And
is that a gold-plated bilge pump switch below it? Hmmm...Yes, I can
DEFINITELY see Dave in a K-D.

I am very jealous of you. I have wanted one of these 435 Kaiser
Darrins for years myself.

I would be interested in hearing more offline as you progress
through your restoration of this vehicle.

Congrats.
