When I drove my 52 Convertible to its second owner in Paris about 10 days ago (see Blog report HERE) Mr Thomas told me that he used to own a schwimmwagen before the convertible and participated in a club for Schwimmwagens in Paris in the fifties, he had plenty of pictures what we went through for almost two hours… some of these pictures I could not resist to share with you here below!!
Cool beautiful period photographs!
The club called “Autocross” and they even had a cool logo!
All the pictures are made between 1951 and 1959… here at the salon nautique in 1953!
They used the schwimmwagens mostly for holidays all over France, swimming suits mandatory!
They had up to 6 schwimmwagens participating! Even back then!!
Action!! This was the president of the club!!
Some pictures are a real work of (photography) art!
Some converted their schwimmwagens real bizar! This guy was a friend, not a member, and lived in a ski resort, only car that could reach his house was a schwimmwagen!
This was the Schwimmwagen of Mr Thomas himself how he bought it!
Those were the days!!
Happy sunday to everybody! Greetings from the incredible Ben Pon Show, watch this Blog for a full report!!
