    Hello guys,

    my name is miguel and I'm living in the near of hamburg, germany. I've startet restoring, modifiying and of course driving german fords in 1996. The first one was the grey 17m from 1966 and the last one up to now was a 15m two door station wagon with column shift (probably the last one in this combination). The orange 12m von 1970 is my daily driver during the summer. The yellow one with scallops is a 1988 fiesta bought 10 years ago for 300 bucks...

    So some of my cars have a V4, the van got a V6, but you all know that a V8 is missing.

    My favorite is a Model A Roadster with a flatty in pre war lake style or similar the Bishop Tardel Roadster without that shiny paint.

    tschüss miguel

    Greetings from the west coast of Florida.

    The cars sure look different then what we see here in the states but I guess every country has their own cars.

    Hope the HAMB helps you. Jimbo

    Jimbo you are right, there are different looks but a lot of design details of US Fords came one or 2 years later into german models. For example the rear lights of the Transit are very close to those of a mid60 fullsize Ford station wagon.
    Up to the 70s the Fords of Germany and the ones of Britain were different too, the Transit was the first shared development of those two companys.

    Hi folks,
    time rides like a car, like a very fast car!
    I've read some threads here over the years, but haven't found time to update my virtual collection on my real life parking lot. Time for an update:
    All of the modern crap has left my garage, some of the 80's crap retired and being replaced by new 80's crap (Escort and Transit) but the thing worth to show (hopefully) is the 40's stuff which found it's way to me.
    It's like I've ever wanted it, '49, 8BA, decent chop, 2dr, OD.
    It rested almost 4 years untouched in my garage, but got dual 97, Aerostar springs, and a MB190 gas tank going to be placed behind the rear seat, so that the spare wheel can reside under the trunk floor.
    When time allows I'm probably open a build thread, but you have to be very patient.
    Stay safe and healthy
