Gerbelmann, whose full name is actually Uncle Gerbelmann, is the car I owned longest of them all: 1994 through 2010. A 1972 VW panel van with original company inscriptions, it used to be my most beautiful car ever. Sadly, it was severly damaged in a collision with a Passat in 2008. Having it fixed was way beyond my abilities and financial means, so I sold it to a friend, who plans to restore it to its former glory. Progress will be reported here; it’s not my van anymore, but it will not be gone from my life.

Here’s the old page about Uncle Gerbelmann from pre-crash times.
