1947 Wolseley 14/60

1947  Wolseley 14/60                        Owned by Kurt Hoppe


Having bought the car in England,  Kurt Drove it the 1200 km back  to Switzerland.. When he arrived home Kurt made a few repairs  and  took his family on a “big test drive through Switzerland”

Kurt sent me some  photos of   The Wolseley.  On some High Mountain roads, taken during this  Switzerland tour

The car has been off the road for some time since Kurt  has begun a restoration,  but he says that “Problems always stop me”. . .   It seems that Kurt  during this time has restored two other cars 1927 Humber and a 1960 TR3A.


I have always had a wonderful memory. when I say “wonderful memory” what I really mean is that I rarely if ever recall horrible things like the weather. I never recall cold or frosty mornings, or even 24 hours of anything dull or boring that might have happened before or after a memorable event, the happy result being all my life's memories are wonderful. Peculiar as it may sound to anyone who might be reading this, I have absolutely marvelous memories that range from breaking one or more of my bones to hanging upside down from an upper branch of an Oak tree with my ankle wedged between two branches. I have heard stories about people that have totally removed from their recollection painful events that had previously occurred in their life. I can believe this because at this precise moment I can recall nothing that was not absolutely wonderful. If by chance I have ever blocked out anything painful I would consider this possibility to be just another wonderful thing. I intend to Blog about my friends and memories on these pages.
