Those of you who went to Buchloe in 2007 and remember my Dad

Sadly, Dad passed away at the beginning of February and we sent him on his final journey yesterday. While he liked Alpinas his passion was the Lotus Carlton and other big Vauxhalls and a few AutobahnStormers club members honoured him by bringing their cars along...

That is a wonderful send off... And superb that others made the effort. That says a lot about your father. I am sure there are many many happy memories. Just stick to those happy memories. All the best.

Condolences to you and your family James for your sad loss

Yes I do remember your Dad and a top bloke.

A nice tribute to your Dad from the AutobahnStormers club members

Very sorry James, to hear of the loss of your Dad, I remember him too.
We shared a drink or 2 in the Stadt Hotel Buchloe.
Condolences to you and your family.

Can not believe it was 11 years ago :(
