Dave:
I'ts from an owner of an Amphicar in Switzerland. I received a like
message. I'm sure it was from the same person. He's looking to buy
something but I cannot determine what. All of the msg does not translate.

Dave:

In a highly abbreviated Swiss variant of "Franglais" of "Frenchlish" it
reads:

I own an Amphicar in Switzerland and am looking for pins, patches or other
Amphicar regalia. I'll pay the going price, or please give me an address
[presumably of an ACTUAL supplier and not, say, Monica Lewinsky's personal
trainer]. Thanks."

You can always reply with:

"Je suis tr?s d?sol?, mais je ne comprends pas le fran?ais, ni j'ai tous les
insignes. J'ai un Amphicar ? vendre. Voulez-vous acheter cela? Voyez s.v.p.:
http://www.amphicar.net/bazaar.html#Dave "

This translates roughly as "Very sorry, but the only "French" I know usually
involves consenting adults, not do I have any pins or other doodads, but I
DO have a whole Amphicar to sell. You want it? Please see:
http://www.amphicar.net/bazaar.html#Dave "

Votre,
