My Classic Car's Autofest '99 - Evansville, Indiana


My Classic Car TV Show has an annual weekend-long Car Show as a feature on one of their episodes. This year, the host, Dennis Gage, asked if I could bring Amphi down to be one of the featured cars on the floor of the stadium. I of course headed right down!


We arrived on Friday about noon with the other 11 featured cars. They were getting their cars all cleaned and ready, but not Amphi. As a kick-off to the weekend, a big Cruise In was planned for Friday evening along the river, and they wanted Amphi in the water!
Elizabeth and I made a few trips into the Ohio River with Dennis Gage to the joy of several onlookers and cameras. I did get Dennis good and wet on one of the launches, but thats all part of a good Amphicar experience. That is the "handlebar mustaschioed host" of the show in the back seat. Saturday we were surprised to see a shot from the swim on the front page of the Evansville paper!
After the Friday evening swim, we rushed Amphi back to the Stadium where he proudly took his place. All weekend long people enjoyed a 500+ car show, car auction and swap meet. They also filmed for a Spring 2000 episode of My Classic Car.


Amphi looked good under the lights!

Everyone from the show really treated
us great all weekend. VIP passes
everywhere, great hotel room and plenty
of perks. The final day, they presented the 12 featured
car owners with a nice little award.
