Am interested in the terminology "Otto Kiss Hearse Trailer."  All of us on this  side of the pond know of what immediately comes to mind when we see the term "hearse."

In Germany at the old days its was commun to use a Hearse Trailer as a cheap way for a funeral (much cheaper than a real hearse). Why we have it?

With the Capri with a very small boot, it was not easy to go to weekend carshows, The Otto Kiss trailer was perfect for travel our camping gear + a lot of other stuff to.

Always liked the Mercury Capri. Had friends that owned one but I never did. Once all over the place, now haven't seen one in years

In Belgium, The Netherlands and Germany we don't many much Mercury Capri's

Always nice to see a Mercury Capri here

Forty years ago , my best friend had a 1974 V6 Capri. They are very nice cars. 

The Buick is nice,too!

Welcome from TX!

 

Although "technically" part of the states, many Texans feel they are in their own country. 😂

Texas is the only State that was an independent Republic before joing the Union in 1845.

Texas is the only State that is allowed to fly the State flag at the same height as the U.S. flag.

I did not know that about the flag. Although I'm not actually a Texan, I admire this state's patriotism both for thier state and country and for the military as well.

They were sold as Mercurys here. Very much like yours except for the headlights. Sealed beams were standard required here then

I took a picture of this place.. I got back to the states .. My dad asked me did you visit your cousin ..  Let every body know what that is?? That is the place that our family is from..

 

The last picture the real deal.. It is better than a tucker..

Do not recognize the first picture, but have been to see the painting in the second picture twice.  Once when is was on the side wall in the gallery years ago and more recently when it was placed on a wall of it's own in the middle of that particular gallery.

 

What was suprising was the size of the picture.  You would thing the picture was 15"X20" from all of the pictures you see, but it is really only about 8 1/2" x 11".  The size of a piece of standard office paper.

Larry - The first picture is :

Trier, Germany's oldest city, lies at the head of the scenic Mosel Valley near the Luxembourg border. An ancient Roman capital, Trier brags that it was inhabited for 1,300 years before the Romans arrived.

Dad had a Capri here in Canada which was a sweet strong little runner.

Unfortunately, I used it for awhile and overeved it to which she dropped a valve! :o

Not being that popular a car, went for about 200 bucks back then....
