The old Days of German Motoring

I remember when that was the Flag Ship of Audi around 1975

Followed by the Opel Ascona B in1980





and then the BMW 316i in 1982





Indeed the good old days

If you had an Opel Commodore Manta SR or the Capri RS you where the Mac Daddy at the Disco. Of Course BBS Wheels are a must on those Schlitten.

Love it! Here in Europe we could only dream of cars like that. Unreachable for us youngsters with a first-job salary.

Oh yeah, the Ford Capri. Forgot that one. I remember my brother owning one.
One day we went for a ride, had to take a turn right, but the damn thing went straight through. The steering house completely broken off!!
That were the good old days before MOT or APK as it is called here.
It was your ass and you were pretty much on your own. As long as the thing had 4 wheels, a steering wheel and some sort of rudimentary brake you were good to go.
God I'm getting old................
