The hospitality afforded by a host of citizens to foreign
travelers would lead to a close friendship between North
American and European families. One European
possessed near reverent childhood memories of
American civilian and military personnel, and his many rides in American tanks and jeeps.
While he and his friends would some day marvel over the technologically
advanced 1950's American Finned
Cars; his father would engineer the 1950's engines for the
Mercedes-Benz Type 300, which included
first iteration of the fastest production car of its day.
His brother would someday engineer the first all wheel drive
car; the Audi Quattro and he himself would rise to the position
of a worldwide sales chief for Daimler Mercedes. Over the
decades he and his wife would visit America taking in its
grandeur and what she has achieved in just 500 years; he often
commentating; "Can you imagine". A theme this crossover website
attempted to illustrate. International Events

"I would have to make a list of the people
who send their regards"

"They were pleased by the respect shown towards the historic and cultural
aspects of their country"
The placing of an American
Flag lapel pin on the lapel of a Hungarian citizen and the man's genuinely
appreciative eyes tearing up.
A prominent Hungarian
businessman would get emotional when he stated; "To think
Americans, Germans, Hungarians and Romanians all at one table".

preparation off Hungarian Hungarian Goulash and thought that your German friends
