Chris,

I am sure Fiona appreciates your effort in doing this in the Rooitaal! We are trying our best to teach her some Afrikaans but unfortunately it seems that only the bad stuff gets stuck in her mind! At least the basics like "Goeiemore" en "Hoe Gaan dit" etc seems to be slowly but surely coming along.

We rode through Outjo direction Kamanjab and I turned the first road left after town and two kilos later there was no farm or at least with the name I was looking for on the right. Jip I had my directions wrong :eek7:
We go back to town and ask at the first garage. Nope they do not know the owner.
Second place we asked was a diner of some sort. The lady there phoned all over town and finally said we should go across town to a business and there works a lady that knows the owner of the car and where his farm is.

We go we wait and finally she arrives. Yes he is there and the gate is open. A bit further out of town we turn left at a unmarked gate and ride down a two track road to a farmhouse.

And there she is all 94 years of age nearly ready to roll again!!!! OK it will take a bit more but her engine is running. :thumleft:
I was really looking forward to see this old car as it has been part of most of my life when stories about my father was told. Sad thing is my father passed away in 1996 and the car was here all the time but he did not know where uncle Fritz or the car was and if he was still alive. I was just lucky to find out the way I did. My father would have liked to see both I know that for sure. :thumleft:



Engine overhauled.



Wooden steering wheel just needs to be fitted.



Key in the ignition :thumleft:



This is where the back seat is and I cannot imagine my father and two others sat here for 2 and a half months. I knew all three of the backseaters and neither was small at all!! :eek7:



These you do not get from Tyger Wheel n Tyre :deal: On the trip they had to constantly water the wooden spokes cause they got loose in the dry climate.



Five new whitewall tyres were bought from the USA to be fitted when the car runs again. (not fitted yet)



Yes engine temp is very important but no need to look on the dash for such info!! ;)



Apparently this had to be done a lot on the trip, in fact they had to push start about every time.



Just need a wee bit of paint ;)



Meet 88 year old Fritz Schutz. Man this guy have hunderds of stories to tell about this car and of trips done with it in years after. In 1966 he and his wife worked for 6 months in Tsumkwe teaching the bushmen. The car was the only transport they had. They went to Kaokoland in it in 1967.
In 68 they toured up the Skedelkus and 69 Boesmanland again working as a teacher with the bushmen. We looked at pictures of the old car doing endless white sand tweespoor tracks. How he got through it I do not know. Even with a one year old toddler and a pregnant wife as passengers!!! :eek7:



If I can be like this man at 88 I say roll on old age!! :deal: :thumleft: He and his wife still goes to the Kaokoland three times a year to go and preach to the local people.



We could have stayed longer with this couple because they were so vibrant and full of life. We said our goodbeys and promises of another visit and hit the road back to Otjiwarongo and my friends farm 32 kms from town.
Late afternoon we were on his road to his home. I have never been here and it was long overdue visit which we both enjoyed very much. AND WE SLEPT IN A BED!!! :thumleft:



nearly at the end. ;)
