I spent thursday and friday last week going to Germany with three old car-friends. Claus Larsen and Brian Schlosser are both Alfa-dudes whereas Søren Bærholm still is at the Audi-stage. We had a really good time, stopping over at the Prototype Museum in Hamburg before going to Bremen for the annual season-starting Classic Autoshow. You can see photos from Hamburg here (Prototyp Museum photos) and the photos from Bremen here (Bremen Classic Autoshow photos) on my public Facebook profile.
I spent zero euros on spare parts - mostly because only german car parts were available. But I managed to buy an old book that I have never seen before. "Rennfahrer" means Race Driver or Race Drivers in german and this is in fact a book with photos from a german doctor who happened to be a very good amateur photographer - who seemed to have been able to get som amazingly good portrait shots of all the great drivers of the era. Furthermore all the portraits have short descriptions of all the drivers. It's really exciting to read the opinion from a period spectator.
I will bring some of the portraits - photographs and words - here when I find time.
