Hello, I just found your forum..

I am Christophe, i was born in 1967. We are from Avelgem, South West Flanders in Belgium. Population 12000.

We love Classic & Custom Cars.

We own a 1973 Ford Capri 2600GT V6 (In the States Mercury Capri, the sexy European) (German Import, 4 owner)

a 1967 Otto Kiss Hearse Trailer, towed by the the Capri (also German Import)

a 1980 Buick Electra Estate Wagon 350CI (US Import second Owner)

Our daily rides are a 2009 Ford Mondeo Estate & a 2015 Ford Fiesta ST 3doors.

We love to cruise with our oldies to classic & custom carshows in Belgium & Northern France

 

Greetings from Belgium, Christophe

Welcome to the AACA Forum, Christophe!

I have a relative who grew up in Belgium.

 

Your cars look very good.  Station wagons are

not seen very often here.  Your 1980 Buick wagon

should be a reliable car, and I like the looks of it.

 

If you have any car questions at any time,

please feel free to ask.  Especially for American cars,

you will find much knowledge here among our forum members.

Welcome Christophe, nice looking cars, I bet the Estate Wagon really gets attention over there

Thank You, Most of the people in Belgium thinks "its a hearse"

In Belgium we got a lot of Chevy Caprice Wagons (most of the time ex hearses)

But our Electra Wagon model1980 is the only traced in Belgium at this time.

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."

Bienvenue !

(Je ne pas parlais Français, désole)

those are fine looking cars!

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

The Buick is nice,too!

The folks in the Buick (Buick Club of America) section of this forum would like to see your Buick.
