    Okay, here are the only pictures I found of my Grandpa's Mercedes. On the left the Volkswagen of my mother and two NSU bikes, both from the early fifties. We still have these bikes. The pictures are from 1979.

    Fiat Topolino. My father with his first car and his fiancée, my mother, in 1955.

    And even smaller: Brütsch Mopetta, most likely the smallest car ever built in the Fatherland...

    Its not a sports car, no GT, but I think its classy, for shure its vintage :)
    Interior picture from my 1969 Volvo 220 estate. Or Volvo Amazon as its named in Europe.
    This car will have extensive refurbishment, and will hopefully be finished winter 2019 if things run as planned.
    I like these dashboards :)
    Bottom picture is the car after being repainted #94 dark green, as it was from factory.

    Ahh, I stand corrected... thx!

    Yes, that is a Lamborghini Miura chassis... possibly the P400 prototype. Google is our friend :)

    I'm curious if people ever came out of their homes to throw rotten fruit when it rolled by?

    It was an alcoholic? Oh wait, wrong diety. That was Bacchus.

    Here's another postwar micro? Honey, I shrunk the 356...

    The most expensive German micro is the Messerschmitt Tg 500 "Tiger". You can't get that one for less than 100000 Euros.

    The steering-wheel of these cars reminds a bit of an aircraft... well... Messerschmitt...

    From one of my fave films Brazil!

    But are these really Grand Touring? Seems like this is Cramped Touring...at best.

    I suppose if I had to shoehorn into one on a long trip this wouldn't be too bad -
