Wishing we were there!

Discussion in 'General Amphicar Discussion' started by Mark_Richardson@Mahleinc.com, Jul 27, 2001.

  1. Come on you guys, this is depressing not seeing any messages posted
    on the list. I know, everybody is having fun in celina right now, but
    we can still hold up our end and post our feelings on the list. I for
    one am having a cold malt pop and thinking about all the fun everyone
    is having. I am issuing a challenge to everyone who could not go to
    post a message this weekend. I think everyone who is there would want
    it this way. So, lets go! I am going swimming this weekend at my lake
    here in humid Tennessee and thinking about next year. How about it!

    You think THAT'S depressing -- we don't even HAVE our car yet, then it will
    take us probably about a year to get it restored right. But it will be in
    our greedy little clutches in about a month! So we'll probably have it at
    Celina 2003...

    Swimmingly,
    Susan Hensley :)

    Wishing I was in Celina also, but...

    First I must get an Amphicar!

    I should be in the market by the end of this year, so
    it is my goal to get to Celina (or wherever) in 2002
    towing my very own Amphicar on a trailer behind my RV
    (at least I already have the RV!).

    By the way, here in Southern California on public TV
    there is a local host named Huell Howser who does a
    show called "California's Gold". It's about quirky and
    fun things that make California unique. A few days
    ago, he did an entire half hour segment dedicated to
    the Amphicar. It was a great show.

    At home dreaming and saving money for future fun!!!

    I will take the challenge, Mark! Your right, posting is a little weak
    today, but I guess it is understandable. Who in their right mind would
    prefer sitting at their keyboard instead of floating in the florescent
    green of Celina!!!

    Congrats to you and Becky, you have a much better reason than I for
    not attending. I stepped on a nail a month ago, got infected with a
    nasty bacteria, and am sitting here with a IV in my arm! Good news
    though, it is on the mend!


    So, to all of you at Celina, I wish you all to have a wonderful safe
    time and would somebody make sure Amphipoda doesn't end up terribly
    inebriated and find himself sleeping under a car in the parking lot.

    Ok heres one for ya.... I'm at Pump Station #3 on the trans Alaska
    pipeline doing tank inspections. About 100 miles south of the Arctic
    ocean. I'm about as far away from Celina as you can get and all I have
    far an Amphi is a 3 inch madel.... This Sucks!

    >> as anyone ever thought of making new ones. not like the one in england?

    Yes, and also thought about stretching into another flavor of an
    "Amphizine" such as the one up in the NorhtEast. As for the new ones, why
    are they always Jet drive? The props on the car really get the attention
    compared to just a jet outlet. Sit at a stop light and engage the props
    with a van load of school kids behind and see the reaction! Wouldn't be
    the same with a Jet? And how about those off the unimproved shore
    excursions ... Jet's suck up mud and stones very easily if you decided to
    not utilize an improved boat ramp. Mechanics of a jet are easier to build
    in, but I think I would prefer props ... counter rotating and separately
    engageable for better low speed manuvering.

    Just my 2 cents worth as I'm sitting here in Texas looking a the weather
    fronts instead of splashing at the Eagles.

    Mark, this was the best ever. Chris & I are considering taking the
    Amphicar to Mt.Dora next March. Ray
