The 54th Frankfurt International

This week was the 64th Automobil-Ausstellung . or Frankfurt International The autoblogosphere is rank with showing you all the same pictures and the same press releases. If lucky, your favorite media outlet had boots on the there this week, original pictures and telling you why the matter, how they will you, and what makes coverage newsworthy.

In case didn’t, or you just had a taste for a little different, I thought I’d something very special to me you today. You see, 20 years when I was in 8th grade, my Dad was stationed in Germany, in the US Army. Even then, I was so obsessed with all automotive, I convinced my parents to me to Frankfurt to attend the IAA.

Whereas the autoblogosphere turned my international autoshow experience Angeles, 2010) into more than a trip to the (which I hate, by the way), I always look back at the day I with my parents walking the 54th IAA back in 1991 and that sense of excitement. so important to me, in fact, I’ve got all the goodies I collected as a 14 year old day.

And that’s what this is all about – sharing what I of my biggest car day in Frankfurt some 20 ago and thinking about how much has – for the industry, and for me as a gearhead. Last I pulled the carefully preserved Honda bag of Frankfurt ’91 goodies it’s safe-keeping. As I unwrapped the old High School sweaters around it within it’s always kept indoors tote, I could feel the building. It was like I was waiting my to sit in the cut-in-half Porsche 968 Cabrio all again.

Hope you don’t mind the Blackberry pictures. I don’t a scanner and was eager to share stuff with you this I’m leaving all the images as clickable if like to zoom in (if it helps

The day started with Mom, and I making the hour drive Heidelberg to Frankfurt. We parked in a and hopped on my first train for the across town to the show. I standing up and bracing myself the train pulled out of the station in silence. Short of the occasional on the Straßenbahn around downtown this is the only train I’ve ever taken.
