Goggomobil on German Sesame Street

Tuesday, February 22nd, 2011

This short bit from a German version of Sesame Street features a Goggomobil TS250 (it appears at about 1:29).

Apparently the guy is trying to deliver the bed and frame from a store and attempts to use the Goggo.  Lots of fun for the next few minutes.  The Goggo gets in the bed at one point.

Goggo Transporter vs Zündapp Janus

Monday, August 23rd, 2010

After leading the Route 66 group to the end of the trail in Chicago we had dinner at Navy Pier.
The Zündapp Janus led Uwe and Ralf in the Goggomobil Transporter back to their hotel that evening along Lake Shore Drive.
It was a good drive and later we wondered which vehicle might be faster?
Both had 250cc 2-stroke motors.

Halfway there

Friday, August 13th, 2010

Day 6 of Microcars on Route 66.
A rather deserted stretch of old Route 66.  But they are almost to Adrian Texas, the half-way point
as long as that storm does not eat them up. All cars are back on the road as of today.
You can follow them on their Facebook page HERE, or check back on this blog to see a daily recap.

Route 66 take off video from Santa Monica Pier

Tuesday, August 10th, 2010

This video documents the Microcars on Route 66 Rally as it starts from Santa Monica Pier in California.
note that the Red Goggomobil Coupe with Dave Raab driving is NOT on the trip, he was just there to help send them off.

Microcars on Route 66 – The journey begins

Sunday, August 8th, 2010

They started at 7:30am August 8 PST.
Seven Eight Microcars will travel 2448 miles along Route 66 from Santa Monica Pier in California to Chicago IL over the next 2 weeks.
You can follow them on their Facebook page HERE, or check back on this blog to see a daily recap.
2 vehicles came from Germany just to do this trip (the Goggomobil Transporter Pickup and the Goggomobil sedan).
The vehicles are (as pictured above) 3 Vespa 400’s, Goggmobil Transporter, Goggomobil Sedan, BMW Isetta, FIAT 500.
There is supposed to be some sort of Map feature on the Facebook page that take the GPS-tagged photos and allows you to track where they are at any time (at least when the photos were taken), but I can’t find any evidence of that at the moment.

John Hollowell of Ann Arbor Michigan with his Goggomobil TS400

Nice profile piece from AnnArbor.com about Microcar collector and enthusiast John Hollowell.

Even nicer is that they spelled GOGGOMOBIL correctly!
Link to article HERE
Link to John’s website: ISETTAGARAGE.COM (where Goggomobil is NOT spelled correctly! *sigh*…)

Profile of Dave Raab from Tustin CA

Saturday, July 17th, 2010

From the Orange County Register, this really nicely done profile piece about Dave Raab,
Microcar Enthusiast and Collector from Tustin California.
There is an ad at the beginning of the video, but the video is worth it.
There is a print story that accompanies this, read that HERE.
Make sure you read down to the first comment, it is hilarious!
