V8 Hybrid Meet Switzerland Aug 2020

Post by felixkk »

On August 15th 2020 the Swiss club will be organizing a meet for the V8/Straight 6 Hybrids, the location is near Zurich. Mike Koch has been in touch with the Swiss clubs of the relevant marques, as well as with owners of cars where there is no club. Additionally we have members who are in the Iso Rivolta club, have Cobras, Facel Vegas, Tigers etc so I'm hoping there will be quite a few cars attending. Anyone interested in joining or helping organize the event, please contact us (office@jcc.ch). If we've missed a marque on the flyer, let us know...

(edit: Straight 6s included)

Looks like a fun meet!! Pretty sure Nash Healey is a 6 cylinder car though! Bitter also! Has a German straight 6 in it. :)

I was afraid that we‘d get into the details of these cars, actually hoping we would. The Bitter CD has a Chevy V8 from Opel. The SC also? Nash Healey: V8s, mainly, but not exclusively! Yes, can‘t wait for the meet...

Correct about the Bitter CD V8--I have never seen/heard of that model before. SC has Opel 6 cylinder. Nash Healey is 6 cylinder though!! :)

I think you’re right about the SC. And the Nash Healeys were apparently to have the Cadillac V8 331cui engine.

Indeed!! We'd love to have you come to the meet. I have not encountered a Gordon Keeble in Switzerland yet. Hugely envious of that car, Jens (as I think I've mentioned to you already three or four times :D ). Slotcarone, we‘ve changed the flyer to include Straight 6s by the way.

Jens -

You should have your pet turtle (or get a plastic one) wander into the frame for all your pictures of that car!

I have a desert tortoise I could loan you, but shipping would probably be too expensive.

(Picture to follow)

Three or four times ain‘t enough, mon chère Felix :mrgreen:

Another two would do the trick!

:D When Mike proposed the venue, I asked if there was a quarter mile track there. They laughed, as if I was joking.
