    There is no heaven.

    August 15, 2020 in Germany ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    ... we did the "heaven for Benz lovers".
    It started a bit lets say.. awkward.
    As, however warned, Nika did not like the fact that I really did drive the old lady up until the main entrance.
    Nika does not like to show of.
    But I do.
    So this "we do this together tour" became a lonely walk in the dark.
    But as things go, in the end....
    So. Now to the museum.
    We really liked it, and I think it's worth a visit.
    Except...
    I missed the cars I came for. Or even hoped.
    .

    It was an exhibition from luxurious and exclusive cars. So I missed the "normal vehicles who made the History of Mercedes Benz .
    I lied if I did not see any W123, but only one 300TD in expo Travel. And a coach an coupe on a trailer in "transport"

    But not any W110, the type as Lieske or even not one!!! W114/W115 the type who saves their ass.
    ..
    Also in the department of "life savers"
    Not one ambulance from the type w110 , w115 or w123. A missed goal.. at least for me.
    ..
    Anyway. We were right in time, going in the morning, as there was quite a row as we looked outside to our Lieske, who got a visit from two Dutch cars.. a range rover and a defender.
    ..
    We stayed for more than 4 hours.
    As we left, we thought it would be nice to go to the Television Tower of Stuttgart..
    (Something like the first concrete tower in the world??)
    Had a coffee and went to the campsite.
    Did not want to go into the city, as the.roads are quite crowdy, many traficlights and... hills !!
    .
    We did a walk into the neighbourhood were we had diner and came home in fear of a thunderstorm. But it just missed us in a mile.
    Now..
    Heading for a place along the Rhine.

    Mercedes Benz Museum Stuttgart, Germany

    Not sure what this BMW was doing right out front of the museum but I'm thinking that's a funeral wreath. Great museum in many ways including excellent food at the restaurant. I wanted pictures of the two models of Mercedes I was driven around in as a child and the one I owned. Got the first two but then the models that were on display chronologically abruptly stops around 1990. Hard to understand given many design changes since then. I will definitely be mentioning that in my trip Advisor review. Time to update your museum Mercedes Benz. I've been to the BMW museum in Munich and they brought it to modern day as should you.

    The history of the automobile they provide is amazing and incredible displays of the tech including the Kompressor super charger system that resulted in my selling my Benz rather than perish in it. You did get the impression they wanted credit for every automotive improvement ever but hey why not and that's probably why there was a massive showroom next door. It was kinda like the difference between U.S. Civil War texts in the north and south. Who knew the the pronged star of the Mercedes symbol represented its presence on air, land and sea?

    Mercedes 240D. Dad, who knew you bought a taxi cab. Sorry about destroying that car.

    Mercedes 300 Turbo Diesel. Rode in one of these to school at Hill many times.

    Couldn't find my SLK 230 I once owned so I got in this bronzed car out front for a pic.Read more
