*****************REWARD***************** Wanted - information leading to the name and/or address of the anonymous gift giver of the Ebay purchased "Amphicar Parking Only - all others will sink or swim" full size metal sign. My Mermaid wife has claimed no knowledge of this most generous and completely wonderful gift. (Oddly enough I believe her). Like I've always said... we the amphibious members of this planet are by far the most... the most... THE MOST SNEAKY NEWTS ON GODS GREEN EARTH! Who gave me this sign??? Sheesh!!! Aw come 'on, fess up - I can't take it, it's eating me alive not knowing. And the really worst part is... I'm not even sure that I didn't order it myself. No, there's no way. I did NOT buy this classic sign, I don't even have an Ebay account. Who gave me this sign? Oh man, this is so intense. What a really genuinely fine thing someone has gone and done by sending me this "Amphicar Parking Only" sign. But please let me know who you are... or else! Or else what you ask? Ha... I'll plague this board with horrible tasteless trivia like this -----> Every sailing ship had to have cannons for protection. Cannons of the times required round iron cannonballs. The master wanted to store the cannonballs such that they could be of instant use when needed, yet not roll around the gun deck. The solution was to stack them up in a square-based pyramid next to the cannon. The top level of the stack had one ball, the next level down had four, the next had nine, the next had sixteen, and so on. Four levels would provide a stack of 30 cannonballs. The only real problem was how to keep the bottom level from sliding out from under the weight of the higher levels. To do this, they devised a small brass plate ("brass monkey") with one rounded indentation for each cannonball in the bottom layer. Brass was used because the cannonballs wouldn't rust to the "brass monkey," but would rust to an iron one. When temperature falls, brass contracts in size faster than iron. As it got cold on the gun decks, the indentations in the brass monkey would get smaller than the iron cannonballs they were holding. If the temperature got cold enough, the bottom layer would pop out of the indentations spilling the entire pyramid over the deck. Thus it was, quite literally, "cold enough to freeze the balls off a brass monkey!" So you better fess up you anonymous sign giver you! And thank you from the bottom of my soft white underbelly to the tops of my unfurled fins. Amphipoda '64 Turquoise San Diego PS - to Larry & Nancy Solheim, Regarding your comment: <Snip> As Amphipoda will appreciate, the "other car" (Amphi, '66 white) is beginning to complain about her frequent disassembly and internal inspections, being used as an assembly aide.<unsnip> Dear Larry & Nancy - Amphi should be told the purpose of inspection prior to opening her up. Like any good doctor, your bed side manner is all important when dealing with a sensitive Amphi. Good luck.
