      Nice! A suzuki cappuccino! It was for a short time offered in germany, but only as RHD. No big success then. But sometimes you can see one. You would win this race, no doubt. But that would be a nice trip!

    Yes. That was this trip. Three years ago now. We brought a black midget also, which had trouble with the electrics and later more. This one is not alive anymore. Interior and seats moved in my red one and we sold many parts. Mine is running quite well and without problems.

      Ah yes of course. I had forgotten about the second Midget.

    OK, here goes ... a very distinctive lighthouse ... easy if you happen to know it (like anywhere else I suppose)

        Yes, spot-on Ralph. La Corbière lighthouse, Jersey, first lit 1874 and automated in 1976.

        Back to you.

              ....well, have a try, what do you see? The picture is telling a story.

            Is it something to do with some sort of competitive sport?

              No, not at all. But i see, that it is very difficult to identify what it even is. For me that was clear, since i climbed on it. But we will move a little bit, so you can recognize it better.

              No it issn't.
              I let me fool me thru the Swastika.
              That elevator entrence , just a concrete wall was to simple.

              No elevator entrance and more than just a simple concrete wall. But the age is correct and also the country.

            Referring as a simple concrete wall was of that the Kehlsteinhaus (the eagles nest) was a gift of the German " people" to Hitler. The elevator is at the inside made of brass.so a concrete tunnel entrance would be to simple for the Fuhrer.

            i had also mixed feelings of that solution.
            if rememberd wel of our meetings, you have nothing with anything which had to do with the war.
            so it would had surprised me if you had went to the Obersalzberg.

            but not the elevator enttance is it any bunker emergency exit at the same mountain?

              It has nothing to to with the Obersalzberg, it is anywhere else in Germany (right country, but not the right place).
              It is out of that time, but it is no war- or military-connected building.
              You are correct, i would never pilgrimage to such a place. It was just an accidental discovery.

              I will give you another view...

              No, and also no other former racetrack. But road is correct.

            Is there a link with a novel or a film ?

              No, but it is a part of one of the big projects of that time.

            An old highwaytrack.
            in that time ( the late 1930's) a 3800km of highway track was build.

              That is correct, Thijs! Now find out the right place. Which of these 3000 km weren‘t finished?

            Could it be on the unfinished part of Berlinka, or more correct; Reichsautobahn Berlin-Königsberg.
            The construction of this route was used as an excuse to attack Poland who refused to allow extraterritorial rights through Poland.

            Maybe near Schorfheide or Schluft??

              Good guess, but wrong. This route is today completely in use. The place we are looking for, was never finished and used.

            Geplante Reichsautobahn Strecke 46 - Bw 69 - Unterführung Salusbrunnen, im Forst Aura, just east of Frankfurt. "Betreten Verboten"

            Of course, I knew this all the time and only Googled to remind myself of the details ;-)
