It was GREAT for Bill & I to finally meet all you Pre67 fans & put our HEBS together for an awesome weekend!
As a Heb_Hunter since 1976, I've personally coveted for almost 40 years any scrap of info, gossip, torn old picture(s), Hebs or even parts of Hebs in any condition. To see just ONE Heb at a meet every few years was a huge deal!! Rob has a picture or two :wink:
So to see 22 near - perfect Hebs lined up in front of the old Heb Factory & to top it off with Klaus Hebmueller & Sons blessing the moment was really like having died & gone to "Hebbin!" :roll:
Although this forum here has allowed me to meet other Heb_Hunters on line, NOTHING beats meeting (many of) you face to face & for the first time! So my HEB Hat comes off to you Rob, Yan, Peter, Claus M., Grundemann family, Carsten, E.T., Ruud, Gerhard, Guido, Dr. Richard, Bjorn & plenty more!
Our biggest thanks of course go to "Klaus Hebmueller & Soehne" (Axel, Frank & Joerg + families) for turning on the lights at the old factory once again & inviting (like bugs to a lighthouse) all of us back HOME again! I CAN'T even use the old cliché that "it was like a dream come true" because this was too extreme to have ever dreamed up!! :omg:
However "Heb - Honcho" Yan Rami nailed the feeling PERFECTLY as we emerged from the ghostly, still & empty factory building and reviewed the rows of shiny Hebs sitting outside ............. MAN, THIS IS MENTAL!! No truer words were ever spoken !!
See you all again in Hebbin one day!
