      My friend did it! He returned Sunday from a trip to Inverness and brought our summer inspection car to Germany. The first and only Austin A90 in our country. There has never been one like this with a German numberplate since 1955, the year this car was built. The authorities had to open a new file for a 58 year old car!



      He took (together with two friends) Thursday morning a plane Stuttgart / Kopenhagen to Aberdeen, rented a car for the trip to Inverness, bought the car and they drove with it via Edinburgh.
      They spent the night in South Queensferry.



      In Edinburgh, Newcastle and down to Hull the inspected together four Morris Minor Travellers, but only one was worth the price. This Morris will be converted now in a LHD car and my friend will return in a few weeks to fetch this car.
      On Saturday night they took the ferry from Hull to the Netherlands.



      The Austin made all the way down to Stuttgart on it's own wheels without any problem. Yesterday we had a short ride together. Smooth cruising with 6 cylinder 2.6 liter engine!! Very nice!!

        Wow Ralf! What an absolutely amazing story!

          New technology described in this article states that 1 gram of fuel equals 28.000 liters of gas!

          Is this the future?

          The car looks OK, right?

              was at a Volvo garage (we park some trailers there) this week,and there was the splashbus for repairs on it's hight leveling system.
              it was standing on 4 lifting poles,so i could look underneith,an talked a while with the driver/captain.

              the waterjets and rearaxle



              the frontaxle and bow



              best regards Thijs

                the frontaxle and just as the rearaxle,Air suspended.



                the airbox under the bus,which also contains the engine.

                best regards Thijs

                    according the captain/driver, Rotterdam and Amsterdam had there splashbus,Lubeck have or getting one,bus 4 goes to Turkey,bus 5 will go to amsterdam too,and bus 6 will replace the one in Rotterdam in 2015 or 16.
                    a trip with it costs around 25 euro and takes about 1 hour and is 50/50 50% driving,and 50% sailing in and out the water on the sloop near the ss ''Rotterdam".
                    fuel consumption 1:2.

                    it's rusting on many places,but so far no water inside the bus.
                    but this one is also the prototype
                    best regards Thijs

                      Awesome to see and learn new things about the splash-bus, and what a treat to see under....

                      I would have imagined it was a whole lot more "streamlined" than the bus really is....

                        The new budget alternative doesn't look too bad I think.... cool concept!

                        Citroën C4 Cactus

                        And the prices aren't too bad either...

                          J-O, I want to just say that I've seen your post #389 and looked into the adressa link. B/W pictures of such cars are very nice (despite the cars condition), and a small detail in the last picture from adressa: the remains of that bus there is from a KOA-bus (Kristiansund-Oppdal Auto AS).

                          Now, just an hour or so ago there was a good looking car parked at the bus stop just over a short field from my house. Had to grab my Pentax, and HAD to do a B/W image :-)


                          Friday 25th, me and my best buddy drove to Tomrefjord to pick up a car he bought...., a model 1945 Willy's Jeep. It was complete with doors and roof cover, but the weather was too nice to have those mounted. I'll tell you one thing though (for those who have never seen a Willy's in real life up close), it is far, FAR smaller than you would expect.
                          I was surprised to find that I, with my 189 cm and "good grown upper body" could not drive it. That left me thinking: how in heavens name could a combat soldier higher than 175 cm in war uniform ever get behind the wheel...???? Anyway, my buddy got it home, and here's a picture in my driveway...

                            Nice cars Sterkoder!

                            That Jeep's window wiper is manually operated isn't it?

                            Always wanted a Jeep like that when I lived in Asia - as a second jungle car.

                              I didn't know where this one would fit, so it will appear here and in the Hotel Room thread:

                              Want to know more, here is a link: http://www.tripadvisor.com/LocationP...rttemberg.html

                              I actually owned a car exactly like that many years ago. (Without the bed)
