In the bright sunshine of Saturday, many car fanatics presented their old and newest darlings in the old town of Bad Hersfeld: For the thirteenth time, the Motorsport Club (MSC) Bad Hersfeld has invited to show the Mückenstürmer classics for adults and children.
Bad Hersfeld – Elona Schäfer-Hablesreiter was very satisfied with the response. Some 40 cars and 20 motorcycles took part in the combined ride, which led from the MSC club headquarters on Europaallee to Linggplatz, where visitors could get a closer look at the vehicles on display. There the cars were presented to the public – including year of manufacture and special features. Various amusement stations were visited during the trip. One of the games was to guess how many balls are in the container.
Among the exhibitors was, for example, Manfred Karger from Philippstal with his convertible built in 1973. His heart beats with vintage cars. He mostly uses it in the summer months, when he’ll treat himself to a trip or two. Joachim Kruger, also from Phillipthal, also considers vintage cars more interesting, he says. “New cars are boring and not out of line, unfortunately they have little charm.” Krueger presents his Jeep CJ-7 Renegade from 1979 on Linggplatz, which was imported from the United States in 2001 and has been owned by Joachim Krueger since 2007. The power of the car is 140 horsepower.
For lunch, the participants first returned to the clubhouse before heading to the ruins of the abbey, where several games were played. Jurgen Herberg of Fantastic Radio provided musical entertainment. At the end of the Mückenstürmer Classics, many prizes await the winners in different categories.
