Hello,

my name is Johannes, I'm 29 years old and I live near Stuttgart, in the south of Germany.
This is my 1983 5th Ave with about 80k miles:

Welcome aboard, nice Fifth Ave.
Remember 1979 getting drunk at a McDonalds in Stuttgart just so I could say 'I got drunk at Mcdonalds'

very nice 5th.  Spent about 6 years in Germany, a few of them near you in Pforzheim.  I'd like to go back for a visit one day.

Darker pics looked blue to me.
All the US army guys had Firebirds/Trans Am's and Vettes
Hardly saw a Chrysler anywhere in Germany.
The Lebaron vert wouldn't surprise me in Germany, but the Fifth Ave would.

My uncle's wife wrote Merkel's biography.
Patricia Lessnerkraus.
Funny if you knew the name.

Welcome!

That car looks very much like one that was owned about a year ago by a fellow who was employed at a Chrysler Auto Shop in Germany.

Is it possible that you mean Bernd? I know him, too. He still owns his Fifth Ave.

There is quite an nice and active community of LeBaron drivers in Germany with at least 2 nationwide anual meetings. I really like the LeBaron. It's my daily in summers.
Unfortunatelly I dont know the book of Patricia Lessnerkraus. I'm more into Tom Clancy's books. :biggrin:

I thought with German politics and media, the book might be known.
