BBT Travels

The Hebmuller meeting was loaded with cool stuff!

Last weekend we spend at the Hebmuller meeting in Meerbusch, near Düsseldorf in Germany.

Unbelievable world record of 33 Hebmullers signed present, the highest number of Hebmullers in one place after the factory in Wulfrath seized production.

Some impressions….

We brought Teufelheb, BBT’s retired racecar, a real Hebmuller with production nr 56.

Every Hebmuller was presented properly in the “Parade”, here Klaus Hebmuller in the Hebmuller family car…

Shuttlebus to Saturday night dinner was all in style!

The Hebmuller Family during the speech saturday night…

Sunday was a small tour with all driving cars and had a stop at one of Klaus Hebmuller Sons Horse training stables. A quiet impressive beautiful old farm, a perfect setting for some more pictures…

Jacques Bouchard from Quebec Canada brought over his Hebmuller for this show, we helped him out with some logistics, on our way home we stopped at the old building of the Hebmuller factory in Wulfrath so Jacques could take a picture at the gate where his car drove out a mere 70 years ago, unbelievable… The plans for the old building are not completed yet, but it will be teared dow for sure… so this can be a historical shot in the history of Jacques cars…:)

What a wonderful weekend… hopefully we will be invited to the next show in five years from now…

Bad Camberg, mother of all VW shows, report….

Sad one car had to be towed, the BBT back up team changed everything but this stiffhead was not willing to go as it should…..

End good all good, Buddy Bill and yours truly after a hectic couple of days having a beer at to celebrate the return…:)

Thanks to everything and everybody involved, didn’t we all had the time of our lives?

Out of the old box

Somewhere in Central Sweden, must be right before the Millenium… cool barn, we loaded two of these big lorries… loads of splittie stuff… and affordable, those where the days… hard work, dirt and grease… but we liked it…

Who recognise everybody on this picture? (except for the truck driver)…:)

The last legs of Bob’s Californian trip…

Left Winnemuca in Nevada early morning…

Breakfast at Jack’s, always a good idea…:)

Nevada is a dessert, but they get snow, and this winter they had lots of snow….

and more endless straights…

Passing the Sierra’s between Nevada and California near Lake Tahoe had more snow, a lot more snow up there…

Arrived well with my full trailer load at the shippers in Richmond California, time to unload and organise stuff now…

That was it folks, another cool trip with a good hunt… we make up and catch a Uber to the airport for flying home. Will be right on time to find my chocolate easter eggs on Sunday morning…

Towing a Bus south, join my 2500 miles roadtrip, be my passenger…:)

Picked up this 1969 Delta green early bay near the Canadian border and had to drag it to the port of San Francisco.

Once loaded on the trailer the real drive started!

Crossing a lot of small towns, they’re cure, but they all have a 25Mph speed limit, don’t move up actually…:)

and bizar buildings on the side of teh roads… they don’t have speed limits, ah, way better…:)

Woeps, big agriculture machines… they take almost two lanes!

Welcome to Idaho… it’s a while since I was here last….

Incredible cool mountain roads… Idaho is really beautiful!

Bridge to home?

McCall with an elevation over 5000ft had a lot of snow still..

ok, down to Boise, where my friend Lind is just about cutting a roof from a westy…

we gonna load the one roof to the other bus… line them up nicely is important!

and simply drag it over…:)

One bus has two roofs now, the other is without… its not fair!

A quick tyre rotation on the Big White Whale and…

…. we’re ready for endless Nevada roads, on the way to California…

You gotta love these old Motel signs!

More straights… looks like endless, but actually its pure motoring fun!

Will try to give an update on the saturday Blog, right before I fly back home… will be home for Easter anyway… 🙂
