This Museum is in the sleepy town of STAVELOT. The Spa Francorchamps race track is down the road from here a few kilometers. I guess my words of wisdom would be not to expect much. The museum is decent, but it is small and on the grounds of an old Abbey. There are also a few other museums located in upstairs in the Abbey. One of which is a puppet museum. Needless to say I did not visit it.
When my GPS guided me into the Abbey’s parking lot… I really thought I was in the wrong place. Because its in the middle of a small city/village – and its in an old bricked building/Abbey.
I have always wanted to visit this small race track museum. … CONTINUED
When my good friend Rudi aka gs/e60/1m? first told me that there will be a huge Porsche exhibit on display in Brussels – I knew I just had to go for a visit! And I am so glad I did!! Never before had I seen such historic cars landmark cars from Porsche! A lot of the cars were on loan by Porsche Museum, but there were also quite a few cars I had NEVER seen before. And as you guys know… I do get around to most every cool automuseum in Germany!
I think Autoworld deserves to be on any car lover’s radar. If your in Europe/Brussels… I highly recommend this museum.
My plan was to drive up to Brussels (on the last weekend of the … CONTINUED
It’s hard to believe it had been two years since we last visited Classic Remise in Düsseldorf, Germany. Since then they parted ways with the Meilenwerk group and now just call themselves “Classic Remise”. I must say there is something about this place that I just LOVE! I think for anyone car lover worth his salt they should come visit this living museum. The famous Nürburgring is not that far from here. Most of the cars here at Classic Remiseare for sale. Some are even for rent – to use!
While most Germans don’t have the luxury of an extra garage… Classic Remise is a place(just as the Meilenwerk is in Stuttgart) where you can rent a space for your classic car and not have … CONTINUED
BIMMERPOST moderator David visits the Pantheon Museum in Basel, Switzerland.
The building was smaller than I was expecting, but it still had plenty of cool cars (~80 or so) inside. This place would make a great detour on the way into Switzerland. They have a nice restaurant as part of the Museum and garage storage. From what I could tell most people use this hall to store their classic cars. But the “Pantheon” does own a lot of the cars on display. In fact they even rent out some of the “classics” for weddings or special events. You can even rent the place to hold a dinner or group event inside the museum.
Overall the Pantheon made for a nice stop on a great drive into … CONTINUED

Great look back at BMW roadsters by XCAR films.
They cover the the earliest roadsters from BMW, from the 315/1 and 319/1 to the amazing 328 and look at the post war beauty that was the 507 as well as leaping forward in time to the latest generation of roadsters, the Z series.
