There stood enough rusting Opels in the field to make a poignant half-article in Classic & Thoroughbred.
Not shown are a Commodore and a Kadett estate or the lucky runner parked on the verge nearby.
It seems Schleswig-Holstein is Opel territtory. Nearby up the road a Calibra rested; at a used car lot even further along I saw Bertone’s follow up to Sunday’s Photo car. Yesterday I spied a bright green Commodore (no camera) plastered with advert text notifying by-passers of a local pharmacy. That was near Glucksburg castle, resplendent in the morning sun (no camera!).
Schleswig-Holstein once belonged to the Danish crown. It looks quite Danish and a large minority speak Danish. They favour the same house-styles but are not as virulently pro-chainsaw as their cousins north of the border. Their suburbs have lots of big trees and are the better for it.
In the evening I monitored traffic from the hotel we stayed in (Flensburg) and a steady stream of unusual (for Denmark) cars passed: Tigras, Porsches, two different Twizies, a Tesla 3 among others. Owning a nice car is alot cheaper in Germany but the television is inane – hence the attraction of the window.
