Default Re: "A" Summer-Cruise from Frankfurt to...

Lots of rain appeared....

Not the best moment to find out that the car does not have wipers

ok i took them out, i should have known

As well i found out, that i dont like the concrete-plates which
are normal Belgian-streets

Driving does "bodom-bodom-bodom" and you feel that the car
gets lighter by loosing lots of screws and bolts...

Actually it was, that we couldnt find a hotel in Gent area for 4 hours.
Dont you ever try

We were unsecure wheather we should rent a room in those
red-lighted-houses you will find there about every mile...

Best thing is, that in this region you order a coffee and will get some
egg liquer with it

Passing Antwerpen, we tried to visit our friend Peter, who i very much into Ford and
(for example) built a Ford Quadricycle replica.
Unfortunately he wasnt home .

Due to some sad circumstances, we are one day
ahead of our plans and knew that he wouldnt be arround....

Even so it it was nice to be at his place.
( Ja - this is a 28 Pheaton under this tent...)

We visited the famous "Drielandenpunt" at the Boarder of Belgium,
Netherlands and Germany . This is the highest point of Netherlands
as well (323m - which is close to nothing )

Great posts Cristoph, I lived in Frankfurt back in the early 70's and your posts sure does bring back memories. I remember seeing a few Model As back then. Thank you.

ok - dear friends.
Today was day 7 (and last day) of our summer hollidays.

Starting in Würselen (Aachen) and leading us to our home
at "Frankfurter Berg" which is north part of Frankfurt.

Hey Midget - most US-Boys were located in this area of Frankfurt
(Elvis was in Friedberg which is 15 Miles away)

However- we had another 280km of driving through germany
and our "Awesome-A" did great again.....
