    Goodwood in Germany...Oldies but Goldies

    For those of you loving vintage cars you may have a look at some amazing babies over here:

    http://www.schloss-dyck-classic-days.de/

    Just click into "Fotogalerie/Teilnehmer" to watch some of the cars showing up at the event on 05/06 August.

    I'll be there for sure - love to see the 906 and 904 GTS in the flesh

    The event takes place in the countryside between Aachen and Düsseldorf - might be worth a visit for those living in the Netherlands/Belgium also.

    Woah,

    so you bought a car that your wife doesn't yet know about it? Or you'll join the group of spectators?

    Looks very interesting, don't think I will make it but will let you know if I do. Otherwise expect us to meet somewhere different.

    Re: Goodwood in Germany...Oldies but Goldies

    Not to throw this thread off but August 11-13 at the Nuerburgring is the Oldtimer Gran Prix which usually has an amazing array of autos both on display and on the track at speed! Last year it rained and it made the event pretty interesting seeing old 911's and Ferrari's spin out. Plus Bentley had both Speed 8's of the 2003 Le Mans there and the great Derek Bell.

    Mind you in our household I only pay for the cars - whereas the wife always has the honour to sign the dotted line at the dealer
    I like vintage cars but I wouldn't own them - too much work (unless you're retired ). It's like the big gardens in my neighbourhood: I enjoy the view but I prefer others to take care of it

    @ Harry: yes, the Oldtimer Grand Prix is very nice - actually could be a nice event to attend and combine it with an Eifel-spin in our Boxsters (or maybe not due to too much traffic ). It's amazing to see how these old racecars still can take a serious beating on the track
    BTW I was passed by a vintage homologized Le Mans car (looked like from the early seventies) last weekend on the Autobahn. I never saw such a beast on public roads before.
    The encounter was over after three seconds hence I even can't tell you the brand of the car
    Everything I can tell you is that the car was flat like a flounder (I felt like sitting in a SUV in my 987 S ) and that acceleration and exhaust sound was out of this world.
