Subject: cars for sale

I have mentioned cars many times. This year Midwest Amphicar has gotten
together nine cars with new owners. Just a day or so I told of two
currently for sale. Also Mike Echemann might still have one or two. Salt
water- You might consider a more of project style car and have
completely stripped and dipped. Joel Stewart used his car quite a bit in
salt water and might want to shed some personnal experience/ advice. One
idea he had was using top half of door panels to easily wash out inside
of doors. Plus using products like salt away that fight the corrosion.
Any one interested in a dual jet Dutton Mariner? White in color. Later
Dave the Wave

Subject: In Spain...

Dear Manuel,

It was wonderful to hear from you in sunny C?diz in Spain and to see your
pictures. I am sorry that I do not speak Spanish very well. My vocabulary
is very limited, but I am sure that many of our International Amphicar
Owners Club members and other owners speak excellent Spanish and even visit
your country sometimes. This explains why I am sending a copy of this
reply to amphicar-lovers@yahoogroups.com. This is the email address of
the "Amphicar-Lovers Email Digest". The "Digest" is an Internet forum for
over 200 owners and others interested in Amphicars. This forum is normally
in English, but perhaps some of its members who speak Spanish will contact
you privately at manuelenrique.lopez@uca.es just to say "Ahoy!" If you
would like to register to receive the "Digest" you can do this at
http://www.amphicar.com or http://www.amphicar.net .

You can use a computer to translate much of the International Amphicar
Owners Club website (or this email) into Spanish at
http://es-es.altavista.com/pos/babelfish/trns . The translations are not
perfect, but they are better than nothing.

If I can be of any further assistance to you, please ask.

With Regards,
~Bilgemaster~ ("El Principal de Sentina")

Dear Amphicar Club:

My name is Manuel Lopez Do?a, and I live in southern Spain in the city of
C?diz. I am the only amphicar owner in Spain (license plate # CA-2000-BM).
I would like to send you an electronic photograph of my amphicar, taken from
the sail regata in C?diz in 2000 (I didn?t have enough gasoline to come all
the way to New York). I very much would like to establish contact with your
organization, at least via internet, because I am very interested in any
related information that is available regarding amphicars.

I anxiously await your response to ensure that you have received my e-mail
and I hope we can correspond in the future.

Sincerely,
Manuel L?pez Do?a
Apartado Postal 13
11520 ROTA (C?diz)
Spain

P.S. I speak Spanish, and if possible it would be preferable to correspond
in Spanish. However, if that is not possible, I have several friends who
can translate for me.

This message is automatically generated on a monthly basis.
It is intended to provide an overview of Frequently Asked Questions
regarding the Aphicar-Lovers List / Digest.

Mike Israel
Amphicar Digest Admin.
================================================

Items of Interest.

The Amphicar-Lovers list / digest is comprised of almost 200 subscribers.
The focus is on Amphicars and other amphibious vehicles.

The Amphicar list is hosted on Yahoo Groups. The list is available in
standard format whereby messages are received individually in your mailbox
as they are posted by other list members. Alternatively, you may subscribe
in digest format whereby a single consolidated message of the days postings
are received each day (around 2:00 AM EST).

Messages you wish to post should be sent to amphicar-lovers@yahoogroups.com.
When replying to messages, particularly digest listings, do not attach the
entire digest in your response. Also, it helps to make sure that the
subject
line contains something meaningful and not just "RE: Amphi Digest #2144".

When you subscribe to the list you automatically receive messages and can
also
post and reply to messages. By setting up a no-cost Yahoo Groups account
you
will also have access to the file archives, as well as the ability to manage
your delivery settings. Visit http://groups.yahoo.com/group/amphicar-lovers
for more information.


List Archives

List archives back to December of 1998 may be found at
http://www.escribe.com/automotive/amphicar/index.html

Unsubscribing

To unsubscribe from the list simply send a blank e-mail message to:
amphicar-lovers-unsubscribe@egroups.com

Some Policies

These policies are in a state of transition; expect some change and
evolution with time. While the list is set up to be unmoderated there are
some
rules of good behavior.

Advertising

Personal classifieds are fine; just don't send them out over and over and
over...

Business ads are strictly prohibited except
by prior arrangement with list management (amphicar770@yahoo.com) List
members
who ignore this restriction will be prohibited from further posts to the
Amphicar digest.


Appropriateness of Postings

Postings must be Amphicar / Amphibious vehicle related.
Spam is strictly prohibited. Please control your mode of expression. This
includes language, style, content. Flame wars are generally not entertaining
or productive, and rarely produce useful results. Learn not to rise to the
bait.
Fortuately, this has not been a problem to date.

There are representatives of a number of businesses dealing with Amphicar
parts
and services on this digest. It is entirely possible that there are list
members
who are unhappy with these businesses for one reason or another. The digest
is
not an appropriate venue for such discussions; there is simply no way that
these
matters can ever be satisfactorily resolved in such a contest -- so don't
start.

Administration

The Amphicar-lovers Digest is administered by Mike Israel
(amphicar770@yahoo.com).
Please contact him with any problems you may have; just don't expect
miracles.
He doesn't get paid enough for that :)

Hi Joel,
That new radio that you have sounds like a winner. What is the brand
and model? I'm trying to decide the same kind of issue with a new
Amphicar that that I have. I think that I'm going to get a new radio
too. As amusing as the old AM radio might be, I suspect that, now
that you have your new radio in there, you'll never go back to the old
radio. It's a shame, though, that the old radio just sits in the
closet. You should offer it to someone who will use it.

Subject: Design Change for Transmission Shift Linkage?

I thought I was about an hour from having my 64 Amphi back together for a
road test. I had the transmission out to replace all of the bearings.
Putting it back in was going o.k. until I got to the part where the shifter
rod (11-43-22) slides into a support brace (11-43-25) on the transmission.
The problem is that the shifter rod is about 1" short of reaching to the
support brace. Since I have two cars, I have been following the assembly on
the other car, which is a 1966. The shifter rod reaches fine in that car.
To complicate matters the support brace I've installed on the 64 was not
installed when I took the transmission out. Instead it was in a box of
spare parts that came with the car. Now I'm beginning to wonder if the
support brace doesn't belong on this car and some other poor guy has got an
Amphicar that shifts poorly and he's wondering why.
There is a short note in the repair manual on page 11/15 about a
redesign lengthening the "operating shaft" but it doesn't mention the
addition of the support bracket. Also, I have noticed that on the 1964
there is a support sleave for the shifter rod mounted on one of the floor
frame braces. That sleave does not exist on the 1966. Can anyone confirm
that I don't need part 11-43-25 on the 64.

Mark,

Sharon and I will be there. We should arrive around 7:00 p.m. Friday if
all goes well. There is a gathering/reception on Friday night at Queens
landing. I got the directions below from Tyrone, one of the event
coordinators. Old cars and old boats, together with some Amphicars, what
could be better than that?
See you there.

Arnold Hite
Johns Island, SC


Arnold, on Friday evening starting 6:00 till ?, Amphicar owners, british
car and boat people will be at the welcoming party on the waters edge at
Queens Landing. I'll have a tent set up giving out name tags for passes. All
Amphicar owners will get in free, Piedmont British Motor Club has picked up
the tab, as one of your perks. Unfortunately our web-site, which has been a
free one, has bit the dust, I'll try to answer any questions I can thru
e-mail. Directions are as follows: exit 36 on I-77 is hwy 150
go west on hwy 150
traveling 4 miles, we are on the Left
See you Friday!
Thanks, Tyrone
