Welcome Katherine and Theo. It was just over one year ago that I was a
new member and since then I have grown to appreciate the value of this
group. When you need advice this site has the answers (we do ask that
you search the archives first). When you can't find a part or you need a
banner it shows up in the mail (Marc Schlemmer). When you need a
Swim-In brochure or an add they mysteriously show up from the
"Bilgemaster". When you need a little humor the site come through
also. (too many to mention). We don't care if you do not have an
Amphicar at present so it's O.K. to participate in the subjects at
hand. I met Theo Sahli last year when I looked at an Amphi which was
for sale. His shop is quite impressive in that it is very orgainized
and crammed full of exotic cars such BMW Isetta, Messerchmitt, Lotus,
TR-3, Ferrari - get it! Since Theo is a hands on mechanic, he has come
to see how our Amphicars fit in with the total car population. One of
the Amphicars he restored is in the Autoland Car Museum in Sherman
Oaks. (Where I got the pattern for my one piece bumpers) . Theo has
the answers to many Amphicar problems. His e-mail is:
theosauto@aol.com.

Hello list!

I am yet another new member. My name is Rick Suter, I reside in New
Hampshire. I have had an interest in Amphicars for a long time. Recently,
I've entertained the thought of owning one. If any members in the northeast
have one for sale please send me the details.

thanks,

Rick

Yes indeed, subscription to the Amphicar list on Yahoo
have grown substantially in recent months. We are now
at 282 members.

Just a few things to consider, especially for new
members:

1) You can go to yahoogroups.com and change the
settings for how you receive messages. You can
receive individual messages as they are posted, a
daily digest containing all messages for the day in
one e-mail, or you can simply opt to read the postings
on-line via the web.

2) This list is seperate from the International
Amphicar Owners Club. The club itself is well worth
the price of membership so you are encouraged to check
it out at htp://www.amphicar.com

3) If you are an Amphi owner, or you are seriously
considering purchasing one, the planet's leading
authority and parts source is Gordon Imports.
Surprisingly, there are still owners out there who are
unaware that virtually every part they will ever need
is available from Gordon Imports. Give them a call at
(562)802-1608 or (714)523-3512

4) Do pass on information about the list and the
club. Again, there are still folks out there who are
unaware of these excellent resources.

5) And remember, if you ever find an NOS Amphi
sitting in a barn for $500, make sure to tell me
before that Mike Echemann character buys it. :)

6) Read Amphipoda's postings at your own risk. :)

7) The Amphi buyer's FAQ may be found at
http://www.carstrucksvans.com/amphicar

Mike Israel

Indeed, our fine Amphicar List/Digest Admin
(Mike Israel) has a point about my postings.
New members are encouraged to read all 750 of my
uneditied ramblings listed at the web site below...

But you have been warned, and note the older
stuff is most disturbing. Great bathroom reading!
Anyone recall a favorite?

Welcome Aboard Rick!

If you're mechanically "handy", up in the Northeast and looking for an
Amphicar restoration project, then you might look into Victor Brown's pair
of offerings up in Sanford, Maine. He recently had them up on an eBay
auction at:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1874920165

His phone number's in the auction text. The auction's now over, but what
with the high bidder having just a "zero" feedback rating, there's every
possibility that the actual sale may not go through. That was certainly the
case in one of my own auctions for a van I once had that was bid on by a
"zero." Then again Victor may have better luck.

Other candidates for sale in a variety of price ranges can also be found in
the Club's Classifieds at http://www.amphicar.com/ads.htm . If you're new to
Amphicars, then you will also certainly want to read Mike Israel's extremely
helpful "Amphicar Buyers' FAQ" linked there.

buying one... just trying to get started in the process... :)
