The Wackiest Amphi Auction Yet

At first I thought this might be one of Amphipoda's comic relief
efforts via eBay. Nope, this guy is serious. Here is your chance to
bid on "a picture of his Amphicar" where the high bidder can then come
and see it.

That BJ auction has all sorts of odd Amphibs crawling out of the
deep....

Mike -

That's odd! I happen to have in my hands right now, the ORIGINAL of
that very photo! Stamped on the back it says " Montague Maddermarket
Norwich" and some pencil scribbles that I suspect may be a date.

Things that make you go HUMMM!

<font face="Arial" size="2">It's genuine ! I know the seller and the car, spoke to him acouple of weeks ago. The problem he is having is how to value it - and how to avoid all the scam bidders out there - so offering the photo turns it in to a sort of no risk advert and the serious will make the effort to go and look - but as hehas putit on the ".com" version of Ebay he should maybe have "Americanized" the description !</font>

I send him an email offering up some of the other photos to him. I'd
be curious how the 2 are connected. I would guess Ian M's name may
come up. I also asked for his VIN to add. I have 409 VINs listed and
165 photos. I almost posted that photo on the dot com site, I'm glad
for him I didn't. Anybody should be interested in an original photo
for thier collection. We 'mericans are an odd lot for sure! ;)

I couldn't get the link to work. Only the first line would cut & paste.
Even after adding the second line, it said it was out of service. Ray
