Default Techno Classica 2013

I've been back from Germany for 2 weeks now so rather than leave it 6 months or so to post some pics as I did last year
Here we go

The train station at Frankfurt Airport, on our way to Essen. I met up with fellow M100 Group, and now TK member Martin L in Singapore where we stayed overnight and feasted on black pepper crab at Jumbo Seafood

First stop was the M100.de stand where we checked in with Felix to let other M100 group members from around the globe we were there

A lovely 3 0 0 in the for sale section, it wouldn't fit in my bag so I couldn't bring it home

220S Cab

Martin, in the "Beer Garden", we spent a bit of time there





A Studebaker, not sure of the model but it was cool

Not sure of the motive here





Interesting take on a T top, I cannot recall what the car was, I think a Citroen

Yes, a SM

Glad you like them, do they remind you of additional revenue

BTW, do you still have the 6.3 coolant pipe Martin said was with his rear axle that I had picked up from you, I think he said it was with that but couldn't find it when I remembered to look today?

Hello Ant pics are brilliant thanks so much for posting them.

The 6.9 and the 6.3 are superb even the Citreon.

I will have to save up and fly Overseas and see the Techno Classic and MB Centre for myself now that would be an experience not to forget!

Back to the pics look at them again.

More for you Tim, yes you must attend one day



There were a few 6.9's there, many more than last year

We also visited the Benz factories in Stuttgart, the C Class production facility in Sindlefingen and the Drive line factory adjacent the Museum, I can't recall the name of this one, both were interesting but typical of modern production facilities, almost all robots and automation.
It was interesting the left and right hand drive cars are built on the same line, the robots would simply pick parts from a different "pile" to make the change

Our last visit was a tour of the Keinle workshops outside Stuttgart, I have no pics at the moment but will get some from Martin to post, what a set up, restorations to perfection. They even had a 6.9 there, for parts
A 500K in the showroom was for sale at 2.2mil euros, I got one and ordered another for Karen

Great pics and commentary Ant.

In my days with the Chev clubs I used to host tours to the USA visiting big car shows and replacement part dealers.

Have you considered doing the same?
