    Today would have been the end of the first "full day" of Essen, with yesterday being preview day (which is usually the best with fewer people).

    I would guess that right about now I would be sitting in a restaurant with a few friends, probably sitting across from Marek and finishing my first Stauder, or perhaps my second. The schnitzel (jaeger?) would be on my plate, and fresh white asparagus. We would be talking about the day, what cars were too expensive etc. The conversation would go on for at least another 3 or 4 hours with many Stauder consumed.

    So, without being able to post any pictures of this years Essen, here is a few pictures of last year. Given that my background in cars includes VW, Mercedes, as well as Porsche I will include pictures of other cars I enjoy seeing at this magnificent trade show. Hope to give you a feeling of the recent shows where Porsche has not been as much represented as it was in 2014-15 as an example.

    I had not planned on being at this years Essen as my son was going to be down here from Alaska for the week... but along with Essen, my sons trip was cancelled due to the Corona virus.

    I hope that the rescheduled event will happen in June, if not, hopefully later in the summer? I don't think that the situation will resolve itself by early summer... but we will see.

    Hope you enjoy the pictures as I know almost all of your are true "car guys"....!

    Please be patient, as it takes time to upload these... wish it was easier. I'll do this over the course of today and tomorrow.

    regards,
    Eric

    Thanks for these photos, Eric - they are a welcome sight on a cold, grey, drizzly day of self-isolation!
