Over the last years, there are an international meeting of P4/P6 owners from all over Europe near the lake Edersee in the land Hessen/Germany (area of Kassel). Interesting pictures and videos of this event:

plus a nice video about it:

Sure, a little bit far away from the USA. Maybe, someone are on vacation in Germany or Europe, so they'll would be visit this event from 24.-26. May 2019 (english/german posting):

The area around the lake Edersee is fantastic and full of history too. Many visitors from all over Europe stay here in the summertime for weeks now. So, the P4/P6 club visit also this place Smile

Hi Harry,
Any chance that there is the same type of info and articles/videos from last years event?

Where do people stay during the event? Is there a hotel near by? I cannot make this years event but possibly in a coupe of years. I always wanted to visit Germany, My Mom's side of the family is from there.

Cheers,
Bob

Hi Bob,

I visit this event in 2017 and 2018. As far as I remember, they came together on saturday and sunday. The drivers (who liked) made a journey together around the lake area and drove over the dam. It was only opened for two or three classic car events a year, on the other days, no chance for cars, but this would be 100% okay.

To get more information about future events, take a look on this site (english/german):
https://taunusp4.wordpress.com/
and contact Hildo, the manager of this event:
hildo@t-online.de

I was there as a guest, because I'm a member of another Ford Classic Car Club in Germany. This club made pictures in 2018:

I'm not sure, if this event is always way over there, near the Edersee. They switched from time to time the places. Hildo will be telling you more about it and what the plan is for the future days.

A brand new western style motel-hotel opened near the place, where the P4/P6 event is located. Take a look, but you must be quick, to get a room, if the bikers and the P4 owners are also be there:

email: info@zuendstoff-edersee.de

Bikers make very often a break at this place, because they have a nice restaurant and it is the right place for every kind of event. The Harley Davidson owners visit this place every year. A real big thing!

In 2017, bikers and Ford fellows were there at the same time. A lot of fun and action Smile

All the best

Hi Harry,
Thanks for all the info. our plans for vacations this years are already made so hopefully we will make it in the future.

I have read a lot about the Taunus 12M p4 because of my interest in the Mustang I concept car that used the P4's drivetrain. I also had a few discussions with Roy Lunn who was the Mustang I and GT40 lead engineer. Very interesting guy.

Cheers,
Bob
P.S. Keep us posted about the P4 or Taunus events!
