PEP Cars Club US-Car Meeting (G), May 1st 2013, Frankfurt/M. (G)

13th Spring edition of the US-Car and Veteran-Car meeting organised by the PEP Cars e.V. – one of the oldest US-Car owners Clubs in Germany:


Hammelburg US-Army & BW Treffen, May 2013, Hammelburg (G)

Nice smaller meeting for owners of ex. US-Army and Bundeswehr MV (most post war) at Hammelburg.
Hammelburg has been in March 1945 the place of the ill fated „Operation Hammelburg“ so we tried to drive on the route that
the Task Force Baum took 68 years before.
