The power of the Amphicar...

Thanks for the private messages about my non-attendance at Celina. I
sure will miss everyone!!

While on the way to the lake, I was waived into a parking lot by an
officer. The next thing I know I am in the middle of a parking lot
of classic cars. I was now in an "accidental" VNCCA car show! The
VMCCA folks there welcomed me to thier show and picnic anyway with
open arms. Evidence of the power of the Amphicar.

The 4th was way fun! Spent the day giving rides in Lake Loveland. It
is in the center of town and a private lake that is VERY difficult
to get on (It is the lake in the vintage postcards I have
from "Sweetheart Motors"). While at a party at another friends
private lake on Saturday, one of the neighbors has waived me over
and had me exit the lake and drive up and into the middle of thier
party. I gave some rides picked up a beverage and one of the people
there is a well known attorney who lives on Lake Loveland. He
offered me his lake pass for the day! More evidence of the power of
the Amphicar.

I met my new friend at the ramp and then my phone rings. It's my
niece who also was at a party on the lake (next to the ramp) who was
running up behind me. I gave everyone rides and cruised the lake
stopping at many homes (all with huge parties going on) for photos
and smiles. There were thousands of people around the entire lake
waiting for the fireworks so it was crowded to say the least.
Something about a car in the water with 5 bikini clad ladies on
board that makes folks look and smile. (yes, me too!) Even more
evidence of the power of the Amphicar.

I love my Amphi!!!
