Which museum did she like best? I was pretty fond of the Benz museum myself, if she's got time tell her to head down to Munich and check out the BMW museum, pretty neat as well.

God I love this country, you just help remind me why...again.

wow your gf kicks *** man.

The Mercedes museum is awesome it's like goin to Disney land, when I hit up the Porsche Museum it was tiny and severely outdated I remember playing Monocco Grand Prix in a 911 convertible w/the steering and gas hooked up to the car to a projector in front, but it looks like they built a new one in the last 10 yrs.

Very cool, tell your GF thanks for sharing.

Nope +1. Manta is a classic beauty when done right like that one. It's just behind the early 70's Alfa GTV in my book. Also, of all those pics it's the one car you could actually own!

Awesome pictures, thanks; brightened up my morning. She knows a thing or two about basic composition and exposure, made the photos that much more enjoyable.

The green and black Opel is nice. Were there any Lancia Fulvias there by any chance?

It's cool she likes cars at all, much less cars like these. My wife looks at vehicles we'd consider retro/classic, and she turns her nose up at the "old, crusty" cars, even if they're mint.
