Amphicar BUYER

Amphicars everywhere!

Recommended Posts

Last weekend we had our annual "Swim In" in Celina, Ohio. 60 1/2 cars showed up for the parades and fun. Where else can you drive up on a beach next to a bar and pickup women who will then buy you drink after drink? <img src="http://www.aaca.org/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" /> I finally managed to meet Ron Green face to face. We swam together taking people for rides at the retirement home. The whole weekend was 3 much fun!

One 500 mile car fresh from storage since 1966 was there swimming! <img src="http://www.aaca.org/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

Here is a pic from the group grope photo shoot.

I was hoping to see some of those cars on the road while on my way home from Metropolis. As it turned out, the best I could get was that there was a green Amphicar sitting on a trailer with no wheels while we were at a truck stop gassing up in Indiana.

That green one was on it's way back to Lake of the Ozarks. It was fresh from the paint booth. I believe it only had a windshield and doors installed. All in all a great weekend!

Tommy - You're too funny! I was wondering why my seat felt more squishy than normal!

We were waiting for the Cuban contingency to show up. Too bad the Coast Guard scuttled that truck. It made it within 8 miles of the shore. That is pretty good for a '51 Chevy! That truck should have been in a museum next to the hot air balloon from the folks who flew it over the wall to show the lengths people will go for a <span style="font-style: italic">chance </span> at the freedoms we enjoy every day. <span style="font-weight: bold">God Bless The [color:"red"]U[color:"white"]S[color:"blue"]A!</span>

Celina was a blast. It was very strange taking folks in there 80's out for rides on the water. They would use there walkers or wheelchairs to come up to the Amphicar and then slowly wrench there way into the seat. Not until my 4th load out did I ever think about the danger of what might happen if I started taking in water. I figured if they were not worried then I shouldn't be either.

My last ride the wife got so hot from the sun that on the way back she covered herself up with a towel over her head. I swear people thought she died when I was bringing her back to the home as she layed motionless for most of the way back. <img src="http://www.aaca.org/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif" alt="" />
