Title: Winterfahrt 2018
Post by: neelyrc on January 14, 2018, 23:50:14
Yesterday I participated in the local MBCA section's winter outing.  Under cloudy skies with the temperature hovering at the freezing point, we made a 110 mile run starting from the Birmingham Hilton Hotel after a hearty breakfast.  We drove over the scenic high plateau between Springville and Oneonta and then visited and drove across three covered wooden bridges  in Blount County with a stop at Palisades Park scenic lookout.  The last morning stop was at the Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament ( near Hanceville, AL.

The day was completed with an extended lunch in downtown Cullman (formerly Kuhlmann) a town founded by German immigrants in the 1870s.

This run will be one of the featured Rallyes at StarFest 2018 in May of this year (

A few pictures are attached below.

Looks to be a very nice run. Were you the only Pagoda?? Looks like there is a gold 116 chassis. Any other of the older cars?

Jon, Mine was the only Pagoda and the oldest car participating.  Next oldest was the gold 116, a one owner 1978 model, also factory delivered.  It is the daily driver of Dr. Jim Roberts national secretary of MBCA.
