“Expect nothing. Live frugally on surprise.”

This past weekend I visited my parents in Oberlin, Ohio. Peaceful and quiet is an understatement when it comes to describing Oberlin. You’re more likely to hear a student practicing the bagpipes (we did) than the honking of car horns or police sirens. On a day to day basis, not much happens in town, so imagine my surprise and delight when I not only spied two vintage German automobiles, but also happened to have my camera with me!
They were just about to drive away…
But he couldn’t figure out how to put it in reverse.
The driver of the blue auto hopped out to give some advice…
While I ran around the back to get a picture of the dashboard.
Mr. Black Beret was very friendly…
And offered to get out so that I could have a seat.
Having mastered reverse, Mr. Black Beret put the car in gear and sped away (not exactly, but apparently these cars can do 62 mph!)
