    Following is a personal invitation from Dennis Gage, host of My Classic Car
    and obviously an Amphicar Lover, inviting the Amphicar world to Evansville,
    Indiana for their annual AutoFest weekend this September. Visit their web
    page at:

    It looks like the best thing for the Amphicars is a Friday night Cruise In
    planned for along the Ohio River and their new Public Landing. The "normal"
    cars will be hanging out on shore while the Amphicars can swim about.
    Saturday and Sunday is a HUGE car show (away from the river). Sounds to me
    like a good time for the Amphicars to play around by ourselves......maybe
    drop in on the show for a while, but most Amphicars would rather be wet than
    hang out at a show.

    In any case...Elizabeth and I plan to head down, and Club Member Robert
    Wright lives in Evansville, so he'll be there with his car. May just be a
    fun, casual weekend!

    ----original message----
    From: Dennis Gage, My Classic Car


    This year Autofest is becoming a City of Evansville event. It will still
    bear My Classic Car's name and I will be there as always shooting an
    episode, however, the financial risk will be assumed by the City. I like

    We've also got the OK to have the entire event downtown on Main Street and
    the associated side streets. Should be pretty cool. The city has really
    gotten behind this thing.

    They will also be finishing a complete overhaul of Dress Plaza (the public
    landing on the Ohio). Should be perfect for launching Amphicars! They have
    also built a Serpentine Wall much like in Cincinnati for spectators and it
    will be very nice.

    I'd like to extend a personal invitation to the entire Amphicar Club to
    attend. As you know, Robert Wright, of Wright Motors here in Evansville, is
    an Amphicar owner and also a big supporter of the event.

    Would you please pass my invitation on to others or tell me how I could get
    it out broadly to all the folks in the club.

    You guys are so much fun and it would be great to have a bunch of you here
    this year. The dates are September 28 - 30.

    Happy swimming,

    Dennis Gage

    P.S. I checked out the site. Loved the pics of Celina 2000! My daughter,
    Jillian, is still talking about that weekend.
