Site history

03 - 08 - 2007 Trying to get some of the runing cost, Euro 250 a year, of this site back by giving  room to Google adverts.
29 - 07 - 2007 Just checking dead links and killing them.
done much work on Commander Lavish but not much on the web pages.
30 - 06 - 2007 Added the Fiat Panda, new info on the Daf Amphirol and a picture of the Arktos
Yesterday I climed 20 times by ladder to 30 meters highed, today I'm dead

24 - 06 - 2007 I added a 2 Uni-Cat pictures
Started on the 3th page on my Amphib.

A new wave of spam came my way
I'm thinking to use throw away email addresses in the near future.
04 - 06 - 2007 OK, I OWN an amphib.
Plan was to go on holiday with it, BAD PLAN.
2 months befor the holiday it was clear NO WAY.
I used those 2 months to finish my caravan (camper trailer)
No time to work on the site anymore
Good news is the spam is controleble now
Email will be possible soon, to much good mail still goes to the bin
The caravan (trailer) worked like a dream in a dream vacation driving the smallest passable roads in the Pyrenees (Spain)
17 - 02 - 2007 Yes, it has been a while,
After the operations I bought my self a Amphib on eBay

I did so much work on it.
Last weekend it was ready for the water

Can't say  it was a happy ending

But I do not have to get bored. ;-)

I did make 2 html pages about it
and I hope to make updates to the amphiclopy soon
I do have  a spam problem to much mail is going to the bin
so hold your email for  a while a solution is on the way
07 - 10 - 2006 Did work on the prototype page
had a few operations to both hands in the last 2 months
recovering = (no typing) most of the time.

29 - 07 - 2006 Today the spell check work is done.
Al so corrected many mistakes.
I have many things to add from the people that have emailed me.
when that is done I will change the lay out a little bit.
After 4 years  I think I'm getting used to the fact that I missed my dream vehicle
by the thickness of a pay check when I lost my old job.
