Only 1 decal is on my car.
It is at the back made myself.
It is a rat sniffing on the logo.
In the club my car's nickname is the rat because it is saved, daily running but with a lot of work.

Cheesy
Not the nicest nickname for a daily used car... Smiley
But this is very lucky, it is in good hands after the scrap yard.

That is exact what the logo means.
Saved before the rats used it as food.

What is it in your hands? Is it the logo sticker of the meeting?

Yep,
It was perfect weather that day for a meeting and we had a busy day.
a member aranged that we could visit a flight-base in Belgium.
The name of the meeting was Matra.....magic missile meet.

Very nice cars and photos. There could be a lot of interesting things to see on the meeting, mainly the museum on the airbase. As an aircraft technician it could have been the perfect meeting for me. Smiley And of course, to see another Matras. Unfortunately there are not so many here...

Indeed it was interesting.
In my younger years i worked for KLM in the electric  sector on DC8 short and long version.
I didn't like the work because most of the time we had to help the mechanics.
They had a lot more work in year revision.
We worked with 240 persons day/night shifts 14 days to do a whole plane revision.
Also my house was 20 km from Schiphol and had to go with a bicycle to work.
After some time they asked me if i wanted to do a 2 year education for DC10 specialism.
I had to sign a long term contract.
I couldn't reach a good agreement about it, so I resigned.
Was a secure job for life, but that is not what i wanted in those days.
I wanted my freedom but maybe it was a stupid decision.
With the KLM you are secured from the craddle to the end of days was the slogan.

Now I know, why you are so good at electronics...  Wink

Last year I was in Schiphol twice. That is enormous! Before being there, I could not imagine how large it is. In my mind it is the center of the world. Smiley

I work for the air force as an escape system specialist, basically a mechanical engineer, that is why electronics is not my profile. Our fleet is much smaller than KLMs...  Cheesy
When I finished the military college I also had a four-year contract, but my obligation is expired some years ago.

In my opinion people are never satisfied so sometimes need to change...

Exactly, but I am retired for some time now and only play and drive a bit around with my Matra's.
Not a bad job Cool

Concerning striping and other user rebuilds, there is a excelent site where everyone can upload called flickr.
This is the link where you see a thousand  Murena's in all its forms passing by.
I already filled in the  slideshow.
Start if you have a hour or so Wink

There were made many pictures of the lady from her birth till 1990. But - of course - that was before we all had digital cameras and were able to put it in the internet. After that she was for more than 20 years in her hideout ( no chance for be at flickr ) untill i found her last year and bought the lady back ;-)
