    Funny you should say that...

    I took the picture for the beer in the lederhosen. I kept the picture for, well...never mind...

    That place looks awesome!...

    ...and Mrs TexZan just told me (after I asked her) that yes, we received the vinyl overlay. Thanks for sending it out. I can't wait to apply it!

    BTW I mailed the Rondell overlay last week so it should be waiting for your return.

    You can stop and say hi to my landlord...

    He still lives in the same house where my wife and I rented a basement apartment, back in '74! :-)

    I'll look it up...any more advice?

    I might try to make Stuttgart and see some P and M cars. Neuschwanstein (however you spell it) and Nurburgring are on the list...if I have the time.

    What else do you have?

    I'm glad you are enjoying yourself!

    Too many folks waste their time there by not going out. If you get a chance drive the Romantic road and stop at Rothenburg ob der Tauber. SWMBF&O spent a summer there going to school, great place.

    For my birthday, I went to the motherland...

    I took a bunch more pictures, but have only had time to post a few. Six liters of beer will do that to ya...Hopefully I'll get more up here in the next few days...

    Oktoberfest, if you've never been, is definitely worth the trip. At least once in your lifetime (kinda like Mardi Gras in New Orleans...once, but never again). BMW Welt and the museum were good. I didn't have lots of time there (but the roadster exhibit made it worth it). Dachau is a somber way to end a four-day trip, but also worth going. Anyway, effective today, I am legally able to be president. Of course, I'm not corrupt, full of pork (well, actually after Oktoberfest I am), the skeletons in my closet are few, and I tell the truth so that would prevent me from running for the office. Oh well. Prost!

    What a beautiful car, and a great color combination (11km on the clock...not 11,000km, 11!):


    The roadster exhibit:


    The aforementioned pork (1/2 meter brats):


    A beer "tent" that seats 6000 (this was the Hacker Pschorr tent) still VERY early in the day - 2pm-ish:


    A good start to a LONG night (this was the Lowenbrau tent the day prior). I would be in Lederhosen, but they're $200+ and I'd never wear them again, so I just got a cool hat:
