CC Outtakes: Parking Lot For Those Who Want To Overcome Fear Of Water

Recently our river water levels were higher than in the past winters. Usually the quay above is fairly wide and -above all- completely dry. Now it was a bit tricky, yet some visitors weren’t afraid of a sudden unintended acceleration.

The oldest ride, a 1997 Opel Corsa B with a 1.2 liter engine.

To the driver of this 2006 Audi A6 (2.4 liter V6): do not mix up the brake pedal with the gas pedal!

Lena waves.

The road to the quay, a temporary aquaplaning test track.

Unsurprisingly no one wants to get cold feet.

2005 Mercedes-Benz E 280 CDI (W211-series), powered by a 3.0 liter V6 diesel, 190 DIN-hp. Although I prefer the improved 2006-2009 W211 Mk2, I certainly wouldn’t kick this one out of my driveway.

The Benz driver has seen enough, he’s leaving.

When the river forelands flood, all animals (regardless their size) living there have to flee or have to be evacuated. This guy here is just staying put, having a keen eye for an easy prey.

…Now what was the title of that Talking Heads song again?
