    <font face="Arial" size="2">Greetings everyone from Minnesota,</font>
    <font face="Arial" size="2"> It's been a year since I trailered my red ' 64 Euro Amphi home and she's just about ready for blasting. It appears that the Amphi factory liked the color red more than any other. Personally, I don't think the Amphi's lines are brought out best in red. Oh yes, I'm thinking of changing her original color. Sorry Doug and David C. Your Amphi's look great but Paul Lalewicz' Amphi looks awsome! Besides, I'm not one to go for original factory restoration, I just want to get her looking sweet and go out and have some fun!</font>
    <font face="Arial" size="2"> Have any of you changed your Amphi's original color?</font>

    Well I though red was the best colour until I saw Marcs powder blue car at
    Celina and that's the colour I'd go with next time. The powder blue was only
    used on earlier cars and so is rare here, the most comon colour is red, or a
    very dark green, almost British Racing Green, that Amphicar used after 1966
    on European cars.

    My car was originally black and some other late cars left the factory in
    unusual colours. Some of the cars in the German club have been repainted in
    non standard colours. There is at least one silver and one orange.

    You need to think about the colour of the interior as well, some
    combinations don't work, and the top and bumper strips down the side, black
    or white.

    Decisions decisions !
