Germany North
Hello again
Time now for some updates. Fall is coming with big steps; end of the month we will turn back the clocks for one hour. And its time to chop some firewood for the coming cold days.
A week ago we also got the first of the storms that fell quite some trees up here in the north of Germany. The trees were still full of leaves and the ground was soaked, so we got a major railroad breakdown.
And just 200 meters from our house a couple of 30 meter trees destroyed our phone wires plus the the railway track.
Anyway, we are online again, so i can post some pics of the Veterama swapmeet:

to please Lannis, Kev. and some more Guzzi lovers. I guess its not a stock modell, but we dont get many chances to see pre-war italian bikes like this one.

..what should i say...? best of both worlds??? on the right hand side you can spot the stall of Jose van Genechten, our Belgian BSA Specialists.

and we had also some old cars at the meet.

there was some quite odd vans, like this Grumman from the fifties. nice look.

met a guy from the far west of Germany who had two beezas for sale. a nice looking Sloper for an attractive price, as i think. He was asking for about 7900 €.
I have seen another Sloper, rolling chassis, basket case, missing bits, non runner that went for 6 grand! Well, i am sure he didnt know about this one here. But this is always the same problem, the swapmeet area is so big that is is impossible to see all the stalls in one day. And you can not be sure to find again the interesting spots when you get lost in the fields. So, you just take the chance when you get the fever and buy sometimes stuff for incredible prices.

B44? or a B50 and i guess he was asking 5800 € for the bike

[Linked Image]
another rare bird: pre war AJS with side car, but dont ask me about the price...
looks like overhead cam, driven by gears?
Any way. This years Veterama i did not have enough time to spend, because i had to show-up at our 40th anniversary school meet. We were 30 kids in our class, and 22 of them were expected to come.
And we had a special date to explore our school and get entrance to the archive !! So we did, and it was big fun! But thats another story.
Have fun with the (few) pics, that i was able to take: Sorry, i was in a hurry so i didnt took more.
But, let me post one more funny one, that was taken at a dirt track race this summer:

Bumper car from the sixties mounted on the chassis of a Quad...
nice idea, right?
well, folks, thats it for the moment.
cheers

Dieter, I always enjoy your pictures. I was born at RAF Wegberg while my father was posted to Rheindahlen, we later lived in Bielefeld. Germany was a somewhat different place back then but I remember it being a lovely country.

Cheers
Rod

hooray..back online again...for the moment at least.
the last storm is over, time to sweep the forest.
I think it s ok to highjack my own thread so i post a pic from todays work:

[Linked Image]

if you look at the pic it dont look so very serious, but when you have the screaming chainsaw in your hand cutting the mighty oak in slices...then everything is different. Here came tons of wood falling down and they even touched the 20 meter tree on the left side and made him look like the leaning tower of Pisa. oh well..
more work for me lumberjack. But we can be happy that nobody here got hurt, although there were 3 or 4 people killed in other counties.
so much for the moment
cheers Dieter

Dieter,
Love the picture of the DUKW I don't know what age it is but I used to drive these during my last four years in the army, a lot of them were rebuilt in military w/shops and vehicle depo's during the last half of the1960s, the one in the photo has been modified slightly, we started doing this about 1967 by cutting out the rubbing strips to allow the sea water to escape, some later were cut out altogether and wooden strips inserted and pinned, although these were basicly a american vehicle, I can see that this one was in service in England, I would like to know the original registration number of it if possible, this can be found on the brass plate in the cab.
Vehicle repair data plate, this will have the military registration number, it will be something like 74 YP 31 and the date of O/haul and wksp number.
I was with 18 Amphibious coy RASC later to become RCT stationed in Fremington N/Devon, this unit disbanded in the early seventies.
