Now for the hard part, if you have read what I had to say about the Porsche museum you might know what I’m talking about. Part two of my trip to Stuttgart was a trip to the Mercedes Benz Museum, all nine floors of it. I gained huge respect for Mercedes on my afternoon at the museum not only that I think I fell in love with the brand.
On the 9th of December I turned another year older. To celebrate I went to Germany to indulge my inner obsession, cars. In particular Porsche with a trip to the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart. I can now say I am totally obsessed.
This is the first of a a number of posts aimed at road trippers looking to head off across Europe. Some countries require you to have your headlights on at all times, some ask you to carry a fire extinguisher in your car and in some countries it's illegal not to have a GB (or wherever you're from) sticker on your car.
So, you may have seen this post. Well now we have it in video form. I assume you'd rather watch my face than read words on the screen, right?
As a side note, well done to everyone who does obey the rules of the road even when they are in a car park. That's how it should be. Actually, you get no congratulations. Just keep doing the right thing.
Picking a new car, one of lifes great events surely? Picking a brand, a model, an engine, a colour and all the optional extra’s you want is a bit like the adult equivalent of an 8 year old with a gift voucher for Toy R Us. So you would imagine that someone like myself who writes about cars all day long and advises others what to spend their cash on would find it easy to pick a new car, right? Wrong.
