His cars were always E-class Diesels.
In Gernamy (sp) cars are taxed by their width.
C class, D class, E, class and S Class.
S class are the widest and nearly as wide as American cars, both then and now.
S class are also the most expensive.
D Class are no longer manufactured as they were mostly C class with Diesel Engines.
E classes are the workhorse, mostly found as taxis in Germany and the rest of Europe.
S Class are for movie stars, they are noted by their futuristic electronics and their stratospheric repair bills.
Tag- Undnachtbetrieb means day and night work! So day and or night you could get his services with his cab.

About April 1977 a taxi cab driver was taken up to the church on the hill "mariahilfberg" and was robbed and murdered and left for dad. A Sp/5 Tim McShane of HHT 3./2 ACR was serving life for that murder when I left in 1979.
Anyone back then remember being locked up and let the Polizei walk by and look at all of us like we were a bunch of criminals in a line up .
The medics and the Chaplains office had the duties of bringing him warm cloths, blankets and c rations. Anybody else remember this and I think the murdered taxi cab driver's name was Kurt!
we had a indian sp/4 who fell asleep on the train, missed his stop and was detained at the East/West border for 2 wks before we got him back.His name was Dave something from Oklahoma. Wish I could remember his last name.
Really crazy when he was drunk but wasn't we all
Robb, I worked in the PAC from 77 to 79 and we had a guy on the books by the name of Overko. He was in the prison in Amberg, we used to run by during PT. I heard he was there for murdering a cabbie in , like 68. He was a pvt and was going to be on the books till he got out of prison, at which time he would be court-martialed. But I sure remember him on the alpha roster.
