One less or many more Amphis


David Derer

It is a strange kind of feeling stripping an Amphi. And before any of
you start complaining a pair of fins and glass does not an Amphi make.
It was such a waste though. This 66 was parked at same time as my other
66. Mileage the same. Color the same. Difference was one sat outside
uncovered. As I pull parts off and see the new brakes,clutch, and wheel
bearings I had to wonder why. The trans shifts easily into gear and with
new clutch that couldnt be bad. The engine now is frozen but valves look
as new.No chunks in pan so I dont think it was bad.Suspension is
complete and nice.I can only guess the lips rusted off and it was
delegated to back yard. Man o man I wish he would of had a roof and
walls around it. The lady was scared I would be dissapointed after
traveling to Maryland. I assured her I wasnt. Parts are already being
scattered across U.S.. That doesnt include all the rust on
interstates.So one Amphi had to rust away so others could sail away. Oh
yea I took off distributor cap and there was no rotor! I wonder if it
had too many rotor problems. Or did it "fall" of at Bill Connelly's?
