    ***Mühldorfer Classic Car Show (Part 11)***

    Part 11

    Now this was a very interesting find. A Mercedes Universal estate. Back in the 1960s, Mercedes did not offer a factory made station wagon so aftermarket companies like Crayford in the UK or Universal in Belgium converted some Mercedes' into estates. They're very rare however and I was lucky to spot this one at this car show. As you can see, it's a top quality conversion too.



    Anyone know what this black car could be? The red car next to it is a DKW 1000S. My father's mother owned one of these in the 1960s. The 1000S was the sports model with 55-horsepower (the regular 1000 had 50-horsepower).


    Gorgeous Opel Admiral


    Buick Riviera. Looks like a late 1960s. Am I right?





    Mercedes 300SL Roadster and Triumph TR6


    One of my favorite oldschool Mercedes Coupes! Beautiful and timeless. One of Paul Bracq's best designs!



    White Mercedes 200 (W115) and a 280CE (W114) Coupe next to it. Gorgeous!




    Both these cars were around at the same time: Mercedes 280SE Coupe and 280SL "Pagoda"


    Detailed shots of the Mercedes 280SL...




    Always thought these were pretty hot. Alfa Romeo Alfetta GTV




    Classic Toyota Celica from the days when Toyota's still had style.




    Jaguar E-Type



    Ferrari Dino



    Mercedes 300S Coupe, one of the most expensive cars in the 1950s.




    Ford Mustang "Fastback", I assume?





    Simca Special, an old French carmaker that was later absorbed or bought out by Peugeot I believe...



    God bless Communism! Trabants...

    I like the Riviera, the first Mercedes coupe and Mustang the best. The silver 280SL looks nice too. Trabrants look cute

    Thanks for sharing.

    Those old Celicas are sweet, there is one in my area. And that 69 Mustang isnt a fastback, its a regular coupe.

    Here is an example of a fastback. Notice how the back window and truck form a straight line.

    Ewww god Trabants. I consider myself unlucky enough to have been given one of these in the early 90s (as in a mate forced it upon me) and I have to say that once you have driven the worst car on earth everything else pales in comparison. Look OK, have certainly become a bit of an icon, but utterly crap in every aspect. Awful awful awful - don't ever try driving one. Riding a horse over a ploughed field is more comfortable.

    Love the Simca - dad had one of those mid-70s I think, never knew what happened to it though as it never reappeared one day...

    Glad you guys liked them and thanks for the correction about the 'Stang.

    TomPrice: Yep, the Trabants are horrible cars but they've got a kind of cult status here and a huge following. A lot of Western European car enthusiasts have a thing for old Eastern European cars from the communist period. The same passion that Trabants enjoy also exists for Volga's, Moskvich's, Dacia's, ZIL's, Lada's etc.

    I never thought there would a Riviera in Europe

    There are plenty of good looking cars like the Jag E-Type, Ferrari Dino and the Mustang amongst others.

    In Switzerland and in Norway, there is an abundance of classic American cars.
