Hey guys,

Thanks for the "English Spoken" thread ....I tried to send some private messages out ; but not sure if they made it out.

I am on travel in Germany from the USA and would like to meet up with some Tri-Chevy members and/or car shows this Friday or Saturday.  I am currently west of Mannheim, GE and will be flying out this Sunday from Frankfurt.  I have a rental car so I can drive about; limited only by the time in the day.

So, if anyone is available or knows of a show let me know.  I see there is one up in Kiel and in Berlin, but I think that is a stretch.  if you know of a member, give them a shout or pm.  I will be staying in Landstuhl, GE at the hotel until I get positive contact that someone can meet me or let me know where a show is.  postal codes work in the cars GPS; I don't do so well in spelling the cities :)

Hey BuDDii,

glad to have you here on tri-chevy-forum.de

The only car show i now, that is Kiel. Kiel is round 550km/310.69 miles away from Mannheim.

You can travel this distance in 5 hours.

What kind of rental car did you have, is this a fast car?  ;D

As your Reminder: You can drive on the German Autobahn you fast you can ;D  ;) (Not in any section)

In case i can assist you more, let me now.

Howdy and welcome to this site  :)

From Mannheim to Kiel or Berlin ....uhhh ... actually with all the Autobahn-construction goin´ on I would say it will be more than a "strech"  :D guess it would be at least 7-7hour drive...one way ::)

The only meet close to Mannhein I found is here:
http://www.americar.de/event/event=1086

It´s about 10miles away from Mannheim City, a general US car event with 100year Chevrolet mainstream program.

Found it on this page here:
http://www.americar.de/startseite

Well hope you enjoy(ed) good ol´Germany and her´s my profile at trifive.com
http://www.trifive.com/forums/member.php?u=16672&tab=aboutme&simple=1

Take care,

Arne
Have nice day, Arne

Get your kicks in a fifty-six

409,

First car I rented back in May-June was a dog... Nissan Quastha (sp?), July-Aug I rented a Peugeot 508 SW and it was fairly fast.  Now I have a family version of the Golf and it takes a lot of time to get to 140 kph.

I am going to try to make it to Kiel to see the Tri Five Chevy Family.... it will be worth the travel. 

All I need now is the address, postal code for GPS and the times.  I am going to head out Friday, I just need to know when and where to go......

Welcome to the Tri-Fives in Germany ;-)

I hope you have fun here...  and in Germany...

That's the funny thing with rentals...  when I spent vacations in the USA, they always wanted to give me a Japanese car...
And don't understand, that I refuse, and ask for a Chevy...  (Was the 2010 Camaro on Christmas..   ;D )
Unfortunally, here in Germany they don't know much about customer care, but they give you something more "Funny", if you go on their nerves...  ;-)

The good thing:  Yes, there are 2 meetings tomorrow...  the one in Kiel is the annual Meeting of this Board...  
And the other one near Berlin is on "Castle Diedersdorf"... where I think I'll take a look, if the rain here ever stops...

Have a good Trip and maybe we meet here...  I live 1 mile from Berlin...
(And you can find me here on Tri-Five.com: http://www.trifive.com/forums/member.php?u=20)

Cheers, Tom

P.S.:  The PM arrived ;)

FinDr

Thanks for the info.  If I need assistance along the way, I will call you and see if you can advise.
I am not making as much progress in leaving as I thought, so need to get on the road.  I should be in Kiel area by 8-9pm tonight.

I will have to leave Saturday; early evening and drive to Frankfurt to catch plan on Sunday.

See you all there soon!

I'm Back!!!   I'm in Landsthul tonight and check out of my hotel on Saturday (8 April 17) morning and start driving north by northwest.

Nothing is in stone and I'm not booking hotels this weekend so I can stay flexible. Here is what I am thinking while looking at a map. All depends on who is available.

Saturday: Stuttgart, Heidelberg, Mannheim, Koblenz, Bonn, Cologne, Dusseldorf.

Sunday: Eindhoven, Tiburg, Breda ... (I only know these town names because Hans (townsman0) drove me all over The Netherlands once. I think we had a 12 hour day and he had to drive from the coast to Eindhoven. It was after midnight and he probably didn't get any sleep before going to work. I was a great time!!)\

Monday: Head Belgium Antwerp, Brussel and Mons.

Let me know if you are available..

I will check my messages in the morning.  Not sure if I will get wifi to check during the day.

Hi Buddii
when you dont get any offer from a Tri Five Member, check Airbnb for a local Host in Germany
https://www.airbnb.de/
Make some paper wings and learn to fly
If there's no tomorrow
Burn your paper wings and say goodbye

Thanks for the link... I checked out some places in some small towns.  I will just drive and find a hotel to stop at before night fall.  Find a nice local place to eat; they are the best!

Hi BUDDii,

welcome back to Germany. If you're still looking for something interesting in and around DĂĽsseldorf, here are two links.
1. This weekend is Techno Classica in Essen "World Show for Vintage, Classic and Prestige Automobiles, Motorsport, Motorcycles, Spare Parts, Restauration and World Club Meeting " http://www.technoclassica.de/tce_uk.php?m=1&ms=1
2. In DĂĽsseldorf you also have the Classic Remise http://remise.de/Classic-Remise-Duesseldorf-english-summary.php

We're unfortunately quite booked this weekend. Otherwise we could have met again after almost 6 years!

And: don't forget to keep the keys to your rental car in your pocket  ;) ;D

Have a good time!

Andreas, Ursula, Miriam and Alexandra

(if you don't remember me, I was the guy with the babygirl in Kiel)

Sorry you are booked up. I understand. I'm just west of Koln right now.
I do remember you guys. I stopped to check to see if you guys saw my message before I got too far north.

I'll be back in June so I will try to let everyone know when I'm free.

Hope to see you, Ursula and the family again.  Key check good! I travel with a hammer just in case LOL!
