Oldtimertreffen Strümpfelbach 750th anniversary

Postby rolandrat » Wed Jul 08, 2015 9:52 am

The last June Sunday saw a massive classic car show in my home village, which is celebrating its 750th anniversary. We fire fighters assisted the local motorsports club, actually we were responsible for food.

It was up to me to coordinate the additional fire engine show, I'm useless at the barbie grill. ;)


Image

Gunther supplied me with a decent 'office', his FuKW 78 /\:)


Image

Of course I extended the mast


Image

and added other essential items like the convoy flag, F-flag, F-arrow, chock and the ground spike


Image

The tray attracted many people


Image

A matching neighbour could be found, whereas it's an ex-Bundeswehr Munga which has been resprayed in early civil protection khaki


Image

The show has begun


Let's start with the Feuerwehr vehicles:


Image

First of all a decommissioned Splitty in the general show


Image

followed by a late Bay and a Magirus


Image

Another Magirus and two Mercs


Image

A Magirus in private hands. The owner not only veils the beacons, but also the city arms and Feuerwehr letterings with magnetic covers. Despite being a fire fighter Ulrich doesn't want to be mistaken on the road. His emergency bag aboard :) () came in handy, when an elderly visitor collapsed, obviously a stroke! :shock:


Image

A BMW (where are the beacons?) and a '25 Benz (no Daimler or Merc yet)


Image

Chatting fire fighters


Now the VWs:



Image

Westi with matching number plate


Image

Another Westi, the trailer houses a scooter!


Image

T1 Crewie and several T2s. Most remarkable vehicle in the row is the mousy Audi 80 tho', mint unrestored condition, saved from going to the scrapyard and bought for 1 Euro!!!


Image

Talking about mousy ...


Image

Type 3, Beetles and Audi Urquattro


Image

Early Type 4


Image

Mint unrestored '59 Karmann, unbelievable!



Miscellaneous:



Image

Imposing displayed Volvo, ex-Swedish army


Image

'64 Daimler Ferret Scout car in the livery of the 1st Royal Tank Regiment


Image

The rarest of the rare, a Goggo pick up, it even cruised famous Route 66! Looks a bit like a crew cab


Image

but ain't


Image

East Germany's Kübelwagen, based on the Trabant. The 'Grenztrabant' = 'border Trabant' was used to patrol along the Iron Curtain



Image

Porsche and Opel GT


Image

Another GT. The windscreen sticker says 'petrol slurper'


US fraction:


Image

Lincoln Continental, in contrast to the GT I'd call it a gas guzzler


Image

Edsels were a flop and are rare, especially this Villager estate (considering the US market only 3,272 built)


French fraction:


Image

Citroen Ami


Image

When have you seen a Simca 1100 for the last time?


Image

Not to forget this Jag, the owner favours 6-cylinders


Image

Farm tractors were placed in the adjacent field. Massey Ferguson, Fahr, Eicher, Deutz, McCormick, Fendt, Hela, Hanomag, MAN etc.


Image

Spotted outside of the show: a Kawasaki custom bike called 'Wüstenfuchs' = 'Desert Fox'. Undoubted reference are the cartridges on the tank and a folding spade


Image

The show in full swing

Wow Roland, excellent photos and what seemed to be a perfect day.
And an outstanding display of veteran fire appliances - well done to all involved in the preservation of those vehicles :) ()
(I hope the unfortunate person who needed help is ok?)
