The "Search and Rescue" Mission
I have always loved machines, especially cars. I was educated as an architect, but I was also very interested in mechanical engineering.
European sports were always on the leading edge of technology and performance,
I was always a fan of them and have owned many used ones. I have been
an enthusiast for 30 years . For the same reasons, I have owned Amphicars
for nearly the last 20.
one of my MS symptoms was slurred speech, I sounded drunk most of the
time. Because of this, it became impossible for me to successfully deal
with prospects in my custom residential construction business. And because
of a few other MS symptoms, at age 50, I retired from my construction
company. My company now is being run by the key employees. Four of them
have become partners.
are my favorite hobby. I started inventing accessories that make the
car better. Since I wanted to own a trailer for hauling my car on long
trips and couldn't find one that met my requirements, I designed and
built a small and light car trailer. And since many Amphi owners were
so intrigued by my design and wanted one, I decided to make and sell
them. I named it "The Not So Big Trailer Company". That name
is a take-off of "The Not So Big House", a well known residential
architecture book. I also design enclosed Amphi trailers, as well as
providing a line of full sized open and enclosed trailers "that
look like they are going 100 mph when they are parked". I have
sold about 20 on eBay. I have an associate who likes to deliver, so
we deliver them all over the country.
felt that someone needed to find all the cars that were hiding in barns
and to put them into the hands of enthusiasts that would use them. I
had always heard that it was almost impossible to find Amphicars, and
if you did, the owners all know they are worth a fortune and consequently
very difficult to purchase. But I know car enthusiasts all over the
country. They all have e-mails and I have sent out hundreds of mass
mailings telling these car guys that I am looking for Amphicars. I am
shocked at all the leads I am getting. I am locating and buying Amphicars
at reasonable prices; I have purchased six since June of ' 04 when I
started my hunt. And I have built a reputation with the Amphicar Club
for honesty and integrity. Just ask any Amphicar club member!
is a always an adventure to rescue Amphicars! Most of the cars that
I have found are in the Midwest, but I have even gone as far as the
west coast to buy them. It is not expensive to ship an Amphi across
the country. And if it is reasonably close, I load it on an NSB trailer
and bring it home myself. I buy and sell Amphicars, and also provide
a "finders service" for people who are looking for a car in
a specific color, condition, budget, etc.
I can also pickup and deliver your car affordably.
