As you guys are probably aware, we're making our bi-annual appearance at the Automechanika show in Frankfurt. Some of the folks flew out yesterday, and I'm leaving this afternoon, so I probably won't be around the forum as much as I usually am in the coming week (until around the 18th of September).

The RT Support Team (Andy, Dana, Jef, and Peter) have been charged with keeping order around this place in my absence. :)

Happy ”tripping” to Frankfurt. Don’t get lost in all the auto booths :)

Too bad I got a very crappy... Uhm... Unsuited work schedule otherwise I'd surely pass by. Enjoy Germany, enjoy the event and don't drink too much beer. Is there a digital tip jar to buy you guys a beer and a pretzel?

Well, well, my flight has internet access.
In 1998 when I worked for Nokia I submitted a Patent Suggestion that would have given them a worldwide Patent on providing internet access to mobile phones etc. in aircraft - but the Patent Suggestion was rejected on the grounds "nobody will ever want to do that". How wrong were they :banghead:

Given that it has a German UMWELDPLAKETTE I'd say it's a local :)

Let me guess, Uwe. It's too low but you will forgive it because of paint color and door count? :cool:

yeah I couldn't read the door sticker, but I assumed it was local.

Not sure how the front wheels can change direction with it that low, I assume it's bagged and raises up for the road?

Those seats look great. Would be better with 6MT though. :D
