<table><div style="font-family:times new roman, new york, times, serif;font-size:12pt">Today I was reunited with my Amphicar following its full restoration by Dave the Wave at Midwest Amphicar. It is 2:00 AM here in Celina so this will be the brief Reader's Digest version ...

In a nutshell, I will simply say WOW! I have spent most of today in a state of shock. This can not be the same rusty, crusty, basket-case that I brought to Celina two years ago. Iwillnot say she is as good as new ... the factory simply did not do work to this level of quality and care. To be fair, Iwould instead say that she now appears to be better than new!

On a scale of 1-10 I will give Dave an 11 for workmanship, integrity, value, quality, communications, trust, pleasure to do business with, etc.We have all heard the horror stories of auto restorations gone bad, it is afterall a long-term commitment of sorts. From the partnership and customer relationship perspective, I simply could not have been treated any better. From start to finish it has been a pleasure and never once did find myself having reservations, doubts, or wondering if I was being taken on even a single item. I would not hesitate for a moment to have Dave undertake another restoration and would recomend him to anyone without reservation.

OK, I admit I do have one concern.I fearthat the lack of sleep in gettingAmphi ready for delivery has taken a strange toll on Dave. He keepsworrying that it is not good enough and he keeps asking me if I am sure that I am happy and satisfied with the restoration. Unless he is holding out onthat lifetime warranty against Amphi ever again rusting or needing a repair ... I think he mustbe delusional!

It is a mighty pretty car. The red top is amazing.
I'd be afaid to take it into that lake at Celina of
even put it down.

Dave's just sleep deprived I'm sure. Looking forward
to seeing him and Grandpa Wave next weekend.
