My New Amphi Arrived Today!

100 degrees today here in Yuma but otherwise, a really "kewl" day for me. My second Amphi arrived in perfect condition after 7 days on the road from Minnesota. This is 100289 and after discussing this car with several members and researching occasional internet Amphi references, I believe it has passed through several hands over the past few years. All in all, it is in pretty good shape especially compared to the condition of the first one I bought. As I may have mentioned before, I have a special project in mind for this car that I'll be writing about in the coming months. Meanwhile, I'm already pondering some mysteries about this one. It has an old AM radio (dead) but no radio antenna or hole where one would have been placed. No spare tire or jack either and seems that it hasn't had one at least since a 2002 major restoration. Anyone have them? The temp indication is dead, hmmmm, just like the first one, there seems to be some bad kharma between me and Amphi temp gages (and brakes). No blinkers either but all easily fixed. Right now I'm all agog with whirrling thoughts of the possibilities. Anyway, here's a pic of its arrival. John F., my amigo!...get ready for the usual barrage of questions!

Nothing so far, Juanito! The temp sender was bad and another one is coming from Gordon's. I sure hope this doesn't go like that debacle with bad parts last year, remember? Otherwise, we may be dead in the water (Amphi-pun?)for a while as the brakes are rapidly becoming untrustworthy. The reservior was really low and after filling and bleeding, it seemed to pump up. Nah, this morning while spotting stuff for pictures, the front right brake sounded like not much lining was left. It's hot as hades already so my daytime enthusiasm is vaporizing fast! Regards to you and yours! - Pablo

Hi Paul,

The fire got to within 3 blocks of my house and the winds were blowing my way until finally the winds died and the firemen were able to get a handle on the blaze. Things are better now but the winds are coming back tonight and the fire still isn't totally out, but it's pretty far up in the hills now.

Whew!!! I'm glad you guys made it through. Each night on TV I was wondering as they reported the progress of the fire. Stay safe, amigo! - Pablo
