At first, like many others, I have a "Mofa" called "Starflite". Later I got a Hercules MP2. Next Bike after driving-school was a Hercules K50 Sprint and one year later the Hercules Ultra80F, one of the first bikes of this type.

1981 with age of 17 1/2 I got the drivers licence for cars.. The first car (4 weeks til junkyard) a goldcoloured 69 Opel Rekord C 4TL with a 115 cui 4-cyl. engine. Next was a 70 Opel Rekord C 4TL in beige color with a 104 cui 4-cyl. engine. All good times are three, and annoyed about the water inside the C-Rekord, I bought in1982 a lightgreen 74 D-Rekord 4TL Berlina with the 2-Liter 100hp-engine.

1983 Honde Prelude Coupe AB

Back to the roots. A half year 83 Honda Prelude Type AB. A nice Coupe, with much power under the hood. It makes really fun to drive this car like a go-cart with direct steering and a deep emphasis. Worn out brakes stoped this fun. Repair was to expensive.
