Rivet The adventures of Bangles in Europe

My friend Marcus imported a 345 to Germany and asked me to post some of his pictures for him. This will be some interesting stuff, since roads a typically rather narrow with many twists and turns in Europe. Hopefully Marcus will chime in as time goes on.
So let the fun begin:


Meet the family!! Marcus comment:She is @home! We live in an old railwaystation from 1865, in GREFRATH - OEDT. behind "Bangles" my beloved Chrysler 300C STATION (!), was only sold in Europe, never in the US. It is equipped with a Mercedes 3.0 Litre Diesel supercharged, 228 Horsepower.V max is 230 km/h!about 24mpg!!!!

Thanks for the pics. I love seeing that 345 in Europe.
How often do you even see one in the states? People must do a double take when it rolls by!

Thank you Peter for posting all these pictures !
One day (!) i will be able to do myself, i hope ;-) !!!!
I will send more, also from the re-build of "Bangles". We enjoy every minute we spent with her. Even if we just drive a few miles at weekend, to have a barbecue on the "Niers" riverside (a very small river here", it is like a holyday.
I love spending time on remodels, i am eager to get to the Christmasmarket soon, to live "Airstreaming" fulltime for 6 weeks!
For sure i will take many pictures on the most touristical spots i can reach!
Promised!!!!
