Scout- & Monteverdi Drivers Winter Party!
Saturday February 4, 2012 - Neustadt am Rübenberge near Hannover
Whilst most Scouts will be asleep in hibernation, their owners will get the opportunity for an exchange of experience and a sociable get-together. The Winter Party will take place in a heated marquee with a collection of Scouts and Monteverdis. Since these can serve as demonstration objects nobody will have to expose his Scout to wintery roads with corrosive salts. Leaving your Scout at home is definetely OK and encouraged.
Trailer camping is available right next to the Scout hall, and a limited number of participants can sleep on mattresses in a room of the host's domicile. Besides there are some nearby hotels.
Anyone interested can register at firstname.lastname@example.org
or phone +49 (0)5032 9520-18.
Sorry, we have been unable to update the english language version since fall 2009. Hoping for better days with more time for the Scout site! In the meantime- keep on scouting ;-)

SSII - where less is more
Many of us fancy an SSII based on its audacious, "stripped" look, but will shy away from the lack of convenience arising from the nonexisting doors. Frank Koster and his SSII conversion are not plagued with this kind of doubt and enjoy the breezy ride almost daily since years, with or without softtop depending on wheather conditions.
In March a great article about the two of them has appeared in the Dutch Autovisie. Since the magazine wasn't available outside the Netherlands, Frank has provided us with pictures from the photoshoot with authorization from the photographer: »pictures
Many thanks to Frank Koster and the photographer!Pictures Copyright ©2008 Arno Lingerak

Scout II toy models
First the good news : Toy model manufacturer Johnny Lightning has issued various Scout II models in 2008 as part of their collection 'Trucking America' : a topless yellow Scout, a black Scout with Hardtop and a white Scout with CocaCola advertising decals. The bad news : The small edition of 2500 pieces per model was quickly sold out. But here and there you can find some of them for sale. So just goodle for "Johnny Lightning Scout". Thanks to Frank Koster for the tip and for his »pictures of these authentic models!
