The best off road van ever!

Recommended Posts

Just found a picture of wolfgangs van on soltau, 25 years ago.

For those who don't know Wolfgang was in the fast food business,

You could be struggling through mud with a chieftain on tow and this guy would be following with a van full of bratwursts.

He certainly was,

There was a story that he used to listen in on the net to find out where tonight's harbour area would be or that one enterprising section attack went in under wolfgangs diversionary tactic.

I remember being backed into the densest bit of scrub on soltau, cam nets the lot, with a chieftain ARRV and a 434. Thinking that it should be a quiet night...

Cue Wolfgang, might as well have been parked outside a nightclub in town.

I can smell the Brattie and chips now.

I Remember that van.

Was talking with him and he said that Tonight you will be here but will move out about 03.00 and then move to there setting up about 09.00 then the next day another move.

I asked how did he know? As we had no clue when or where we were going.

He said "They always do this, besides they let me know so I can find you."

 

In the photo Is he getting a tow?

Looks like something on the front tow point.

I expect there is a Chieftain stuck in the mud in front of him and he is about to tow it out backwards with the Merc van ...;)
