As its too cold in my garage to work on my 1974 Coupe deVille
at the moment , I spent some time to update my website.
I added a couple of images to the "Best Of" image gallery
on my website and put a couple more of my videos online in the video gallery
Check them out - here are a few previews of the new pictures you can find in the best of gallery.
I had the pleasure to photograph my friend Lucky´s 1958 Eldorado Biarritz in August 2016.
I shot a couple of pictures of my 58 Seville at a mountain at sunset last summer
My wife and I crossed the Swiss Alps during a road trip with our 1996 Buick Roadmaster Estate in August 2016.
The Cadillac BIG Meet 2016 was one of my personal highlights in 2016. We took lots of great pictures there like this 1964 Cadillac Fleetwood.
With winter approaching rapidly, today I returned the license plates of my cars and put them into winter hibernation. I did not drive my cars very much this summer due to a mostly very rainy summer. So I did not rack up too many miles on my cars this season. I just made about 200 - 400 miles on most of them...
The cars are now in their cosy garages and will all get a new wax-, lubrication- and thorough cleaning job during the next few weeks. I usually also disconnect all the batteries, give the weatherstripping and rubber a good coat of silicone spray and treat all leather areas with leather conditioner. I also clean the interior carefully and over-inflate the tires to make sure that they do not get any flat spots. I will also park the tires on styrofoam. I really hate winter and snow and I am already looking forward to next spring... Over the winter I will rebuild the starter motor of my 1967 Eldorado and detail the undercarriage. The Lincolns undercarriage will get a very good cleaning as well. The 67 DeVille will get some new front wheel bearings and probably a new wheel cylinder and power booster. The 58 Eldorado will also need new front wheel bearings. So there will be a lot of minor things that will keep me busy over the winter...
Below are some pictures of our very last cruising tour this week with the Mark III

The whole family in the Lincoln - little Elliot is taking a nap as usual - nothing beats the soothing sound of the V8...
We had a short photo shooting with my cars today. My wife shot a roll of good old medium format slide film through her good old Hasselblad camera. You can find the image gallery with the best pictures from this shooting here
. Not in the pictures is my AMC-Pacer which is not running at the moment.

The Roadmaster today got fresh 5W30 oil. It needs 5 liters for a complete oilchange.
