Goodbye old friend :( Titine is dead!
« on: May 18, 2018, 15:53:03 PM »
Well, it had to happen eventually.... After 8 years of brilliant services, my car broke down on the side of the road.
Way fixable (transmission shaft on the right), but I think it's time to say goodbye!  :'(

Best car I ever owned. Loads of room, low diesel consumption.. The ideal modeler's car!  8)

I hope the next one will be half as good!

Fred - Car less for now  :'( :'(

How many Km has it done Fred?
Try not to run out of airspeed, altitude and ideas....... all at the same time.

Hi Keith,

270000 km, so pretty much nothing for these cars  :-*

The mechanic wants me to fix it as they are the best engines ever, but time to move on, with regrets I must say, love that car  :'(

Indeed! Many many miles to go flying with it  :'(
Wasserkuppe, Italy, France, Spain for a few :(

But, new Titine is nice :) Air conditioning, and can get a massage while heading to the slope :)

Still haven't put a big glider in it, so she still need to be put to the test!  ::)
