We returned there in 2006 and discovered that the old I. G. Farben building that was our headquarters is now a university.
I remember that. It had one of those old "paternoster" elevators that moved continuously. Miss the step, and it was bad news!

I was stationed in Friedberg from 92-95 -- right up the road. Ray Barracks, right by the Friedrich Barbarossa castle. Good times, long gone. The Army has all but vacated Germany.

Very nice car, Flojo.

Well at least in 2006 the 'Paternaster' was still very much in operation and, naturally, we had to try it for old times sake. Much more reliable than the gloriously decorated elevator from which we constantly had to rescue unsuspecting travelers!

Yep. The most fun and fulfilling time of my Army life. Speaking of 'vacated', guess how many M-1 Abrams tanks we still have in Deutschland in organized units? Answer: ZERO Should make our old buddy Vladimir Putin just a little bit over-confident. He could be in Paris by May the 1st.

But I digress. I'd love to take my car on the Autobahn for a spin. Those tours advertised in "Panorama" are a bit too spendy. I wonder if there is a more reasonable alternative. How about it Flojo?

I did have a more reasonable alternative. When I was younger I had a GF in Osnabruck and we used to borrow her mom's GTi and head of to Spain or France in it. Weeks at the beach and a car to drive around in plus impress the locals with my autobahn driving skills.

Might just do that my friend. That's a great idea about the car rentals and I'm sure that a day or two driving Porsches on the Autobahn would be just about right and a week much too long. We'll be in Rome in November and Deutschland is not that far away. I'd spend the rest of the time touring Bavaria eating kalb schnitzel and trying to find the perfect Pils!! As in "Herr Ober, noch ein Pils, bitte!! Too bad the spargel season doesn't start for another 5 or 6 months.

Around here it's 'grill season' 12 months of the year; even in the snow! White asparagus in just not easy to find in America unless it's in a can from China!

well... some fender edge rolling was sceduled today...



this lip was causing a problem at the tire edge when the car is cornering and encountering abump...



2,5hrs later the shop called:
- right side all fine
- left side near finish, when THIS showed up:

a crack in the lip, about 20cm long at the 1-2pm position, probably a spot bondo covered 2003 when painted by the PO...








so mounting the new tires is postponed to satureday...

How did I miss this? Some Saturday in September, all of us down here need to make the run up there and check out Klassikstadt.

I put the Michelin N-specs on mine last week. Sweet tire.

I was. On Friday, when crowds are small and tickets are cheap.

Sunday is usually full already. Maybe a Saturday trip to Klassikstadt? No big event, but just the place itself is cool.

Hi guys,

Hope you don't mind me jumping in on this one but I would love to meet up with a few of you Pelicans that are based over here in Deutschland. I have never been to Klassikstadt and Frankfurt isn't too far from Köln. A great excuse to get my porker on the autobahn for a blast!

If you could let me know about a meet up I will see if I am free. Cheers.
Here's a photo of mine.........

I love Germany and I have spent some time in Frankfurt twice this year - very enjoyable. I really enjoy your pictures and story.

My father came from Friedrichsdorf... (and my mother from Wüstfeld... a little futher away!)
