Hi,

Just found that nice forum on google.
My name is Michael and i live in Hamburg (great city!) in northern Germany.
I´m 34 Years old and my main Interests are classic cars and classic rock music.
I spend a lot of weekends at car meetings...
Just bought a 1988 Fleetwood Brougham de Elegance. Pics will follow!
My actual cars are: 1987 BMW 520i Edition (e28), 1991 Buick Park Avenue.
Sometimes i drive my mum´s 1987 Pontiac Firebird on sunny days...
I got a little experience on these 80´s cars because i owned a lot of them:
BMW 3, 5, 7 Series (e30, e28, e23)
and of course GM F-Bodys (Camaro and Firebird/Trans Am)
This is my first Cadillac and i hope i will enjoy it for a long time.
Unfortunately most Tire Shops in Germany do not offer whitewall Tires...shit!

How do i upload my own avatar from my computer?


Rock!

The 70 Eldo is in Holland, but I will drive it to Hamburg some day. I did last year, but it needs a leak repaired in the rear window gasket. So that will require a new vinyl roof...

You catch my grasp?

But I will drop by to have a look at the cars. Thanks for the link!

I was there at the "Spielbudenplatz" yesterday. The rain kinda spoiled it, so I only parked for about 15 minutes. Long enough for at least one person to make photo's :D

Unfortunately yesterday i was not there because i felt a little bit sick, the flu...
Next weekend we will be at the "Rotenburg Race Days" Great meeting.

Pics of the 2006 Race Days in Rotenburg:

and here you will find pics of the "German Race Wars" in Eisenach in May 2007:
http://www.bandit-online.de/forum/thread.php?threadid=18731&boardid=12&styleid=3

So you will get an Impression of the german quartermile race and classic car scene. The Eisenach pics will show my actual Buick Park Avenue wich will be
sold for the Cadillac.
The Rotenburg 2006 pics will show my former 1987 Trans Am (red w. silver ground efx)

Btw, can´t await to have the Cadillac here in Hamburg; it actual still sits
in Bavaria; southern germany and waits for it´s transport...

No, but they don´t drive directly to Hamburg. They deliver other cars in Frankfurt and Braunschweig.
Tomorrow my Caddy will arrive at their firm in Harsefeld; northern Germany.
Then they will deliver it around tuesday if a truck is free and has a tour to Hamburg (i hope...).

Welcome to the forums. I just got back from holidays in Germany. Spent time in Munich and area. Did the BMW factory tour. I was only one who didn't drive BMW. Great tour. Also enjoyed the beer tours! Met a nice couple from Hamburg. They were there for a convention. Driving that big Caddy in Germany will be a challenge, although I did see a 1 tone dually Dodge truck there as well.

Yes, I like the sharp edge design of the 70´s / 80´s BMW cars and the sporty interieur and
the "race" feeling while driving them; shifting gears and accelerating... cool...
But I also like that "sugar daddy" feeling while driving an american classic car... it´s just unbeatable !!

here´s a pic of my 1987 (e28 Series) BMW 520i Edition:
