Our "new" Ramcharger
« on: April 15, 2020, 02:43:20 pm »
Hello, my name is Eike and I live together with my wife and cat in South Germany, not far away from Stuttgart. One week ago we decided at short notice to buy a 84 Ramcharger and next Saturday we plan to bring it home :) The car comes directly from Washinton State but I don't think it has spent all of its live there. It seems to be in good condition, nevertheless there will be some things to do next years. We like the "used style" but of course we have to do something to keep it in good condition.

In Germany we have only a few cars of this type. So I hope to find here some technical tips and maybe some opportunities to get some spare parts (garnish molding e.g.). My wife and me have been often in US and we also do Western Shooting. As I saw the the NRA sticker at one of the side windows of our Ramcharger the deal was almost done ;-)

Sorry for maybe strange wording, I'm using the best English I have  :)

    You're english is good. A little off, but we can understand it well. (Much better than some people that actually live here) I am from Washington. My cousin who was born and raised in Washington moved to Germany. My last name is Braunschweig (Germany). So... Guten Tag (That is about all the german I know. lol) and welcome to the forum!

    Thank you all for welcome me.

    Even if most people here like US oldtimer here are not many of them. Most oldtimer are from European manufacturers. One reason is a "cool" US car is too big for a standard garage. Our garage is 5,35m (17,5 ft.) long. We were originally interested in a double cab 4x4 Pickup but these cars do not fit.

    In the last years here at the countryside the number of Pickups has risen up, mostly new Ford Rangers and VW Amarok. But it is still at a very low level. Except Cherokees & Wranglers you find almost no US-Cars here.

    @RCCADMAN - yes, Braunschweig sounds really German :)  In a forum is always a special slang, much different than business language. Same here. To read and understand all the technical discussions won't be easy. After learning the vocabulary it will run better.

    Today we brought the RC home - 80 miles, no issues. A good start for a hopefully long relationship. It makes fun to drive it: It's lound, it's uncomfortable, it smells like eshaust, gasoline - perfect  8)
