A new favorite: MEILENWERK, Dusseldorf

Very few automotive happenings cause physical disturbance in a positive way.... But there are some. Revealing a fantastic barnfind, first start up of a high performance engine.... the feeling of a great great deal, an unbeleivable swap meet find.. We have been fortunate to have experienced a few over the years; standing in the middle of the Daytona trioval when a total of 6 - six - Porsche 917s put the pedal to the metal...was strong - very strong.
Last week we visited "MEILENWERKE" in Dusseldorf - a museum for "fahrkultur"...."automotive culture". We very much got the same feeling - almost lost our breath. Unbeleivable - a monument to our hobby that really make you proud of what you are doing. Check it out:

A gigantic old steam locomotive garage has been super-nicely restored and converted into a .... monument for automotive culture.. A shitload of oldtimers was stored two stories high behind glass doors, a whole soccerfield full of classics for sale, and a alley of specialised vintage automotive repairshops... in the middle of it all: Cafe Hebmuller. I am not joking! Not to be missed on your next trip to Das Vaterland - no matter what type of car hobby you fancy.

We really liked the Fcael Vega HK500 - but that would be cheating on your wife, right? We totally fell in love with this one, and are already planning our return-visit...
