Parts and more parts

As many noted, it is great to see all of the repro parts that are becoming available for Amphicar. Not ill-fitting substitutions but OEM or better quality repros from Hugh Gordon, Gord Souter, Alan Woodcock, and more. Dave's body panels and tranny rebuilds have eliminated a big source of angst for many Amphi ownerswho once were up the proverbial creek.

I got to thinking about all the people who have provided the parts that went into my own Amphi restoration, beautifully executed by Dave the Wave. Certainly none of us would be floating without Hugh Gordon. I also have to give kudos to Hugh for standing behind his products. I bought me repro rear bumperettes back when they first came out but only now put them on the car several years later. When one of them starting flaking chrome after only a few days of use, Hugh did not hesitate to replace it. When it comes to service and tech support, I'll give Hugh an A++. I also have many parts on there from Gord Souter which I simply would not have been able to find anywhere else. This includes his fabulous interior kits and an OEM wiring harness that I am sure glad I bought from him a few years ago. Alan Woodcock (Amphibian of the year) has made some big investments and I am proud to be sporting his visors,
trim pieces, etc. There is the John Friese clutch kit, something I recall people only dreaming about at the 2002 tech session. Ron Greene found us wiper arm replacements. Mike Echeman provided my carb and can always be counted on when one is really in a bind for some unobtanium NOS part. And again, I'll mention the craftsmanship and atistry that goes into the body panels and rebuilt trannys done by Dave. I am sure there are others I have forgotten but it is great to be supported by such a network of individuals truly committed to Amphicar's future.

Cheers,

Mike

...And while we're at it, let's really give a hand to Mike Israel for
riding herd for nearly a decade now on this Amphicar-Lovers List, the
primary venue for Amphicar technical info and fellowship, without which,
many of the superb advances in "Amphicaring" wouldn't have been
possible, or at least so deftly coordinated and made known to our web
toed motoring horde.
