This was my tiny car, 141 inches long, 62 inches tall, 95-inch wheelbase, 67 inches wide. Weight was in the 2356-pound range. I think horsepower was 102 horsepower from a 1.6 liter 4-cylinder, 22-39 miles per gallon (I'm translating this from German owner's manual). The owner's manual said 0-62 in 12.2 seconds with its five-speed automatic--about 68% slower than Alexandria (my Accord). It had a very smooth ride for such a tiny car. When the "Sunflower Seeds Low" light came on--time to refuel--gerbils are tired.
St. Martin's Church-Fortress (below) dates from the year 1304. Gangs of robbers, roaming the local villages, made the villagers turn to fortresses for protection. Most of the Church-Fortresses in the area are in ruins, but the one in Dörrenbach is still in use. The walls of the Church-Fortress are 20 feet high and 3 feet thick. Constructed of sandstone blocks, the fortress walls form a square around the Church and graveyard (some photos were shot on my third visit in February 2002).
