as far as we could figure out there was only two different models made in germany, this Famag brand and the “Lilybox” as we have in our private collection. also some Swedish manufacturers but they used wood as far as we could determine, what the change on survivors will be little… as far as we know till now, this is the only Famag that survived!

Last road trip in USA for me… tomorrow we’re heading home!

The last trip, drove from Los Angeles to Arizona and from there back to the bay area for flying home…

The reason of this last road trip was to see my friend Chris from US Autobarn fame… (remember the BIG junkyard? That was Chris’) Chris is ill and only God knows how long he will be longer with us… a last visit was so appropriate and I left LA on Wednesday afternoon right before Thanks giving, Probably I don’t have to tell You traffic was a mess, a big mess, It took me 5 hrs to Barstow something i can do normally in 1 hr 45 mins…. sjeez!
