Amphipoda San Diego

It?s that time of the year again. Some may recall
last year around this time I solicited for input and
candidates for the annual Amphipoda Award. Last year
this award was given to Hugh Gordon of Gordon Imports
during the 2000 Celina Swim-In for his heroic efforts
in keeping the Amphicar dream alive and providing us
with replacement parts and FREE advice. {In case you
missed last years Annual Amphipoda Award Ceremony
(drunk-n-passed out somewhere) I have copied the
presentation speech below.} At this time I am
soliciting your votes and input for this year?s second
annual highly coveted Amphipoda Award. The award
committee (namely me) is eagerly awaiting any and all
nominees... and you don?t have to be present to win,
but it would sure make it more fun. So take a moment
and cast a vote care of

As promised... last year?s Award Speech;
My Fellow Amphibians...Those of you who know me, or
know of my Escribe contributions under the name
Amphipoda, know that I on rare occasions tend to
embellish just a little. In this case, honoring this
special individual, it makes no sense to stretch the
truth.... we, the amphibious population of the
automobile world all know that we would not be here
today if not for this individual and his tireless
efforts to keep us afloat.

I first encountered this gentleman when I was looking
to buy an Amphicar, he provided helpful insights and
immediately sent me the parts catalog which I, to this
day, keep under my pillow awaiting the next revision.
Later after I purchased an Amphi, our paths crossed
several times and my phone bill climbed to new
heights. His free advice, outstanding guidance, and
limitless Amphi wisdom comes from over 20 years of
service in the Amphibious world. Because of his
tireless efforts we continue to be able to float and
drive our Amphicars. Without this special person in
our lives we would not be amphibians and would be mere
mortals scurrying about on the shore with cheap rubber
rafts fantasizing about rolling splash entries. But
due to this man and his dream, his vision, of keeping
the Amphicar alive - we are here today.

This is the guy you call when your Amphicar needs
parts or you need Amphicar repair advice, or you just
wanna run up your phone bill talking about moral &
ethical dilemmas in a decaying geo-political society.

A man whose Amphi gills (I mean Amphi bills) span the
entire globe...

My fine finned friends... I give you the Amphibian of
the Year 2000, winner of this year?s Amphipoda
Award... Hugh Gordon of Gordon Imports
