Herbie’s Winter Sleep

As always Herbie served as a daily driver in the summer season. But now the winter is coming and Domi got him ready to hibernate in a little town on the countryside of Austria.

Thanks to our friend Flo, Herbie and the camper found a shelter at his rural property about 120 kilometers northwest of Vienna, where they’ll stay at least until April next year.

Austrian winters are harsh. In order to de-ice the road, they put salt on the streets which causes a lot of corrosion. Therefore people are storing their vintage cars indoors in winter.
