Welcome to the third episode of "Vintage cars (3)".

Continued from:





(ooops! we managed to fill the previous page with the dazzling amount of 5 pics )
speaking of... vintage cars ;-)


DAS Auto





the VW Golf was named after the Golfstroom/Gulfstream. but in the US and Canada is was called Rabbit
launched on my BD in 1974 and on december 5th of that year my parents bought 1. 1500cc, ivory white, with a sliding metal roof.
I didn't think too much of it, until I adopted it in 1987. since the best ambassador for a car is the car itself?!
(we once got a call from auto Pon, who imports Volkswagen/Audi, to ask if they could use it in a tv commercial.
and learned there were only 3 1st owners left in the Netherlands. sold it a couple of years ago, hopefully it's still alive!!).





my precious car is vintage alright (and so am I ;-) we grew old together). although you may think it does NOT belong 'here'???
officially been an oldtimer for a couple of years, until the tax sharks decided they were missing out on too much money and therefore have to pay road tax again. :-S
biennial vehicle inspection since it turned 30 years of age, (instead of yearly), once every 2 years.

Golf II, about to turn 31 on march, 3rd. 1800 cc with a GTI interior and striping (and red calipers n such), I believe it to be 90pk.(it's fast ;-) and only likes super plus gasoline).
(still needs a bit more make up, but most of the 'stains' are just water).





reason I asked what your favorite FLs are... as much as I like WA, it's not nice to shrink the tyres ;-)

angora, nice old Chevy truck. That one would be at home on a levee. I can get by in Pennsylvania Dutch:), an amalgam of English and German left over from German immigration to southern Pennsylvania, but that's about it.

Audio Doc, nice place. Didn't get in the Inn but parked in the lot across the street last fall. Frenchman St. just out of the Quarter was the hot spot for music when we were there.

Anne,
I like the weathered look of your 2CV! However, I don't think the German TŁv would like it!    Thanks for sharing. I don't think I've ever seen a 2CV "Ente" here in the USA. They were a common sight in Heidelberg when I lived there!

Angora,
Very nice Chevy Pickup! That would even be a rare sight here! So it must be a "one-of-a-kind" in the Netherlands!
Thanks for sharing! What camera and lens?

Cliff,

We were there last May, and of course, stayed in the French Market Inn. I've only been to NOLA twice, despite my father being born and raised there. Have also parked in the lot across the street (near the levee )

So do the Pennsylvania Germans actually still speak a little German? My Mother's family were ethnic Germans from the Odessa region South Russia, now the Ukraine, that emigrated to the Dakota Territory. Her father's family only spoke German at home, but Mom never really learned to speak German.

Hi Kelly, Small world. Depends where you are for Pennsylvania Dutch. More actual "Dutch" in rural Amish communities, and it is much less common then when I was a kid and was exposed to it. My family was not from the heart of Dutch country and mostly Welsh, but it was not far, and you still had to watch for horses and buggies on the roads.

There are more colloquialisms in general use in south central Pennsylvania these days that came out of that culture than German phrases. It's things like "Outen the lights" for "Turn off the lights", "Ain't so?" for "Is it not so?", "All" as in "The cake is all", meaning eaten. Not German but idiomatic sayings that had roots in German. I could not be conversant in real "Dutch" but could at one time stumble along in a dialect that had adopted some English words. My great grandfather, not Amish, spoke an amalgam of heavily accented English and German. For example, things like: "Vats der matter mit der kats?" when the cats were meowing.

like the pics of the corpses appearing! (brr! such a pity to let them rust away!).
funny 2CV (deux CheVaux/'2 horses') is called 'Ente'/duck in german as well. common name in dutch w/b eend/duck or ugly duckie. (they must be on the brink of extinction!).

think we must have found the word-of-the-year already? ;-) what did I start?! (or should we blame Addy? ). truth is I enjoy all of this talking in between pics tremendously i.e. to get to 'know' you!!!

'my' 1st Chevy pickup ever! couldn't pass it by (without taking a pic -or 10-).
sign says: '28e molentocht Goes'/28th windmill (since we're into cliches! lol) tour. (Goes is a -small- city, approx. 30 kilometers from Vlissingen aka Flushing/the coast). didn't ring a bell, but knew it had to be an oldtimer tour. (so figured it had participated the day before I took those pics). and it is:
http://www.molentochtgoes.nl/fotos.html
(even the spitting images of my (BMW) m.bike were present!

A99 + Minolta 28-135 aka the secret handshake/Leica killer (which IMHO qualifies as vintage as well ;-)).

edit, typo: truth! not thruth

Nice catch AnneMarie, I kind of hope it's not yours. That car's given full use to someone, must be no more than an Un Chevaux by now.
