Bye bye 2011!

Hey Guys
First of all I want to Thank YOU for accompanying me through the whole year. 2011 has been an amazing Year for me. Especially cause I started this Blog on January 1st 2011 and through you The Car Addict is now what it is!
For 2012 I can already say that it will be much more exciting than the first year. I want to attend more Motor Shows, Events, Fairs, Museum, and I also want to try to spend more time for Blogging, try to do it really daily or even twice a day.
But we will see what the Future brings and again, thank YOU so so much for everything!

If you have any wishes, hopes or needs you want to share with you, any changes or additions you would like to have here, dont hesitate to get in touch!! Either use E-Mail or Facebook or twitter.

Now some statistics before an overload of Pictures shot while this amazing Year.

What happend in JANUARY on The Car Addict ?

Hey Guys

Up from today every day I'll just review what happened during this year here on The Car Addict .... the first year since this Blog is existing.
Let's start with January!

January, what a nice month and the New Year's Eve hast now just another better meaning - The Car Addict's Birthday was on the first January in 2011. Here's my first Post Hello and welcome!- haha, I havent wrote much at this time :)

What happened then? Sure, everything was just new, had to be developed and just grow. Like the "Car of the Week"-Series I now have since January 9th. The first Car was the legendary DeLorean DMC-12. And I already started at this time my "model car addiction" :-)

I also introduced you Clärenore Stinnes- kind of my Idol. She was the first human ever who drove a Car once around the whole Continent. She, her Photographer Carl-Alex Söderström and a Mechanic needed 2 years and one month with their two Adler Standard 6.

As its an all know fact, the most things that happen by chance are the best, also what I did on Monday this week: I was just walking and discovering new places when I passed the booth VW had at the 8seasons in the Sonnenstraße in Munich.

When you're used to something every day, again and again, and it's just a great habit of yourself (and millions and millions of others on this planet) - driving a Car.

Automotive Fashion: Audi Collections A1 Softshell Jacket

Hey Guys
What a bargain I did on eBay a few weeks ago: a (almost) brand new Audi A1 Soft Shell Jacket. I got it for only about 20 % of the real shop-price, so that helps me to get over that I can at least not wear this one until March, April or later in 2012.

Event: Car Fetish. I drive, therefore I am - Museum Tinguely Basel

Hey Guys

Yesterday there was a talk with the title "Car Fetish" ("Fetisch Auto") at the Zeppelin Museum in Friedrichshafen, Germany. Even just cause of the title I couldnt miss this event!!!

It started at 7 pm but already since 5 pm there was space for car addicts, like me, they were showing the original film "Herbie rides again" ("Herbie groß in Fahrt") by Robert Stevenson from 1974.

Roland Wetzel, Director of the museum Tinguely in Basel, Switzerland, presented us the exhibitition that took place in his museum from June to October this year. There just couldn't be a better name than "Car Fetish. I drive, therefore I am." (" Fetisch Auto. Ich fahre, also bin ich") for it, definitely!!!

The Karma does it with only 2.1l

Hey Guys

The Karma is with its 400 HP definitely one of the most efficient, lowest emission automobiles available despite its size, performance and visual appeal.

New MUST-SEE Film: "Revenge of the Electric Car"

Hey Guys

We all know and love the dozens of movies with wheel spinning Cars, more powerful than little kids can actually count and all the fast rides on the motorways/ the autobahn. But now imagine all this with zero emission and in total silence - but with a plus of heart beating and probably more enthusiasms.

No, you don't need to be perplex now cause you can't imagine that such a movie/documentary could be fun, but belive me, you will like it!!

Revenge of the Electric Car is not only a movie, a film, a documentary, it's so touching and much more than these previous words could describe!

The world and especially the automotive world is now at a point of rethinking and fining new ways for transportation. Elon Musk, I could mention it a trillion times, is just a real genius! He knows what we, the people, really want without saying it or even thinking about it. Combining minimalistic with usabillity and add new technics and above all, break new grounds. That's n…
