After weeks of rain and temperature below average yesterday showed a blue sky and abt. 20 degrees (Celsius) here. Just the occasion for a 40 miles trip. I knew there was a Veteran Rallye held and they passed just my favorite route nearby, so I made a stop and watched them go by. Only one Model A Ford involved and a 1912 Overland (which was trailered) - most cars 60s and younger. There was much horn sounding and waving - I think they did not expect a 1916 Tourer waiting for them.
As I have driven only a total of 150 miles since I bought my T in May I do not yet dare to take part in a rallye.
Just shot some photos in the sunshine and could not stop me from working on them to create that old look. Also in the front view picture the indicators and some modern fence and street post have been removed (from the picture ...). I admit that the letters on the 'ideal' license plate are not drawn perfectly.
Next step in my T experience will be to set up the top for the first time.
Hope most of you will be able to enjoy some fine autumn driving !
Great looking car and pics!
Joerg, wie gehts
Great photos in the old style except the edge of the road stripe was not there in the old days.
When I was in the army, I spent two regular tours
of duty there and then later many Temporary Duty
days there (TDY).
Love the T
Looks Good Joerg!
Thank you all for appreciating !
@John, you are right - after posting I also recognized that the white marks should have been removed.
Where have you stayed here ?
In 1963 I was stationed at Stuttgart for 2 years, and in 1968, I returned to Germany and for a short time was at Wertheim and then Unit moved Lock Stock and Barrel to Kitzingen Army Airfield.
In 1981 and 82, I was at Ecterdingen (?) Airfield
outside of Stuttgart for 3 wks, at Mannheim for 4 wks and other places.
I have to be careful when I list places where I have been in Germany, because I have several ancedstors from there also whose era goes back to Heny "the Fowler."
