Re: Herbstausfahrt 21. September 2019

Ich bin sogar bereits Mitglied bei den Schweizern, irgendwie sind mir sämtliche Hinweise auf dieses geile Event wohl durch die Lappen gegangen. Wirklich schade, nächstes Mal passe ich besser auf! Neben meinem Laden fressen die Autos leider auch sehr viel Zeit. Ich “bewirtschafte” hier mittlerweile 6...

Re: Herbstausfahrt 21. September 2019

Mensch Felix, das sieht ja aus wie bei mir zuhause! Marcos und Interceptor nebeneinander, wie schön. Leider, so muss ich angesichts Deiner Beschreibung und dieser Bilder sagen, haben wir am vergangenen Wochenende mit unserem Club “IG Speichenrad” das 35-jährige Bestehen gefeiert. War auch ganz nett,...

Re: Top Tips

Well, now for something serious and technical again:

Painting each and every tool you use on your car in a bright orange
may avoid unwanted noises from under the bonnet when taking her
for a test-drive after the job is done.

Same applies for the filler-cap... :oops:

Re: No politics? Oh dear...

I think it is all simply down to finding the right balance. We will surely all agree to the benefits of freedom of travel, business, immigration (of EU-residents) and so on. The main problem in my eyes is, that Bruxelles goes too far beyond that. We do not need the United States of Europe to maintai...

Re: No politics? Oh dear...

I have meanwhile learned, that by far more brexit-supporters participated in the referendum than opponents. Allegedly, because the opponents felt too sure, that the brexit wouldn't happen. Hence, in my eyes it is absolutely not proven that the brexit is what the majority of the british citizens real...

I hope, Merkel will repeat her statement "wir schaffen das" (we'll make it).
This time I'd be supporting her :D

Re: No politics? Oh dear...

I've said this before, and I will say it again, locking posts does more damage than not. Evelyn Beatrice Hall wrote in her biography of Voltaire "I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it" and describes the principle of freedom of speech. Threads sh...

Re: No politics? Oh dear...

It really says "...if the admin team do not LIKE a thread or post..." in the forum rules??? So the subline of this forum actually means "you may discuss anything we would like you to discuss"? Oh, I see. My fault, I should have read the rules more carefully. I would have never ev...

I`d like to get back to what actually made me open this thread:

Re: No politics? Oh dear...

I agree with Oliver. Is is not possible to delete individual posts rather than shut down the whole thread?By the way nice article on the Interceptor in the German Oldtimer Magazine, Oliver. I like what you said about the Swiss cars! Hey Felix, maybe there are still more members to visit this thread...

Re: No politics? Oh dear...

You are right, that drawing with the ducks (I suppose you refer to that one) was mislead and not really enriching the debate. But instead of closing it for everyone, a friendly but determined hint by the moderator to the one who posted the drawing would have been the better way. I still feel pity ab...

No politics? Oh dear...

To my big surprise and regret the obviously very popular discussion about the Brexit was closed last night (Topic "Oh dear..."). The moderator in charge expressed his concern, that this discussion may become too emotional and reminded the participants to be a car club. I don't want to be c...

Re: Oh dear ...

Merkels premature "...wir schaffen das! (...we"ll cope with thar!) may eventually prove the root of much evil.
She may have chosen the right direction but ran off too fast and way too far.

Re: Oh dear ...

I can fully understand the British concerns, but not their reaction. Being in the import and wholesale business I have to suffer from new legal regulations and restrictions on a nearly weekly basis. What was once meant to become a strong economical community as a counterweight against China and the ...
