Grein was a real burner!

This saturday we went to the Strudengauers’ meeting in Grein, which is always pleasant and matey, even though they hadn’t the weather on their side the last years. This time it meant to be better, as the temperature was up, sun was shining, no rain was in sight and a bunch of real nice pieces of old metal showed up. Around noon most of the participants got on the tour and we left as well. When we returned, we immediately realized there was something wrong, as smoke was rising form the Aumühle, a nearby Wellness-Hotel. Then the events came thick and fast! The first firemen arrived, we helped the Strudengauers to get their stuff out of the danger zone and then we all couldn’t do anything more, but watch the firefighters do their job. Hopefully the Strudengauers don’t let themselves discourage by this tragedy!IMGP1388 IMGP1380 IMGP1385 IMGP1382DCIM100GOPROGOPR0385.DCIM100GOPROGOPR0384.IMGP1387 IMGP1381 IMGP1386 IMGP1392

A sunny day in Stockerau

A small group of us (Flo, Domi, Jan and Benjamin) decided to pay the bug meeting in Stockerau a visit. On top of the nice weather, nice rides and friendly people all around, we can proudly call the first club-trophy ours!!!

Koller’s Oldtimer

After so many times we passed the oldtimer museum on our way travelling to the bug show in Eggenburg, we decided to visit it on Saturday. We have seen more than 150 exhibits of 130 years of automobile history! Especially fascinating were the cars made in Austria by Puch and Steyr or the self-made sportscar “Angelmar” based on Volkswagen and Porsche 356 parts. Note that only five or six cars of this huge collection are not privately owned by Mr. Koller.
