Media gets story wrong.

It must be the fact that we are dealing with an Amphicar. Why is it
anytime the media does a story on these vehicle, that they almost
always get the facts wrong.

May I refer you to article:

http://www.philly.com/mld/inquirer/news/local/3641375.htm

(if url above does not work, then go to philly.com inquirer and
search for amphicar)


Not only did they suggest that Billy has (and I am quoting here)
"run his turquoise rarity aground before - in Lake Erie and in the
Potomac, Hudson and Cuyahoga Rivers" they also claim I drove "IN" my
63 Amphicar the 9 hours to New Jersey. (yeah right, do I look like
Bilgey?) I had it on my trailer.

Now I know Bill Syx is known for is "adventures", but come on...

Chris, I think it's news in general, whether it be
papers, TV or whatever, is at least 1/2 in the mind of
the reporter. I don't believe very much of what I see
or read anymore because they just seem to make things
up to make their story better. Like the stuff about
being stuck in the Cayahoga river and Lake Erie.

Sheesh!
