The globetrotter Zapp family has been traveling around the world with a 1928 Graham-Paige American classic car since 2000. The worldwide journey took them in some of the most exotic parts of the world and their experiences have been well-documented on their website and Facebook Page. Their European tour kicked off this year and will take them across Europe from North to South and West to East.
Their last stop was in Bucharest with a quick visit to the BMW Auto Cobalescu dealer where the 1928 classic undergone some repairs. The beautiful old timer has been the chariot for the Zapp family and has been serving them well in places like the Americas, Australia and New Zeeland, Asia and Africa. Over the years, the family has grown from two to six – Herman and Candelaria have four children born during their 16 years of travels: Pampa in USA, Tehue in Argentina, Paloma in Canada and Wallaby in Australia.
Graham-Paige is an American brand that produced cars between 1927 to 1940. The 1928 Graham-Paige 610 models is equipped with a 6-cylinder petrol engine and 3 speed manual transmission that assures travel speeds of about 50 km/h.
The car stopped at Auto Cobalcescu in Bucharest to repair a broken wheel and to get the much needed oil maintenance.
“It was a pleasure to support such a beautiful and inspiring family during their travels around the world. We will be following their adventures closely”, said Raluca Rădulescu, marketing manager Auto Cobălecescu.
