Ein Hecht der Landstraße

Aufgrund seines enormen Beschleunigungsvermögens wurde der Aero 1000 damals als „Hecht der Landstraße“ bezeichnet. Die Firma Aero wurde im Jahre 1919 in Prag-Holesovice gegründet. Zunächst wurden Flugzeuge produziert, ab dem Jahre 1929 dann auch Automobile in den verschiedensten Versionen. Man begann mit 500 ccm und 10 PS und steigerte sich stetig bis zum Aero 1000. Bis zum Jahre 1934 wurden ca. 4.000 Fahrzeuge gebaut und auch verkauft. Aber nicht nur an einer Leistungssteigerung wurde gearbeitet, sondern Modifi kationen gab es auch beim Fahrgestell und der Karosserie. So kam unter anderem eine neue, elegante Kühlermaske zum Einsatz. 67 Auch im Motorsport war das Modell vertreten. So gelang es einem Aero 1000-Piloten bei der Rallye Monte Carlo den dritten Platz in seiner Klasse zu belegen.

Hubraum: 998 ccm
Leistung: 24 PS, 2 Zylinder

After the war the company made the Type 30 until 1947. About 500 were produced with 200 going to France and 100 to Belgium. Design work had been done on a new post war range which would have had hydraulic brakes and four-speed gearboxes, but they did not go into production. Aero disappeared when the Czechoslovak motor industry was nationalised.

In Dutch, my homelanguage: Ik ben Jeroen, tot januari 2015 was ik al dik 26 jaar werkzaam in een psychiatrisch ziekenhuis in een stad vlakbij Werelds grootste havenstad Rotterdam. Eerst als verpleegkundige/begeleider op high care, later op afdeling dubbeldiagnose (verslavingen) en ook nog een tijdje als administratief medewerker. Ik heb een spierziekte "Poli Myositis" (alle spieren zijn ontstoken) daardoor weinig energie. Sinds augustus 2015 is daarbij de diagnose Kanker gesteld, en ben ik helemaal arbeidsongeschikt geworden en zit middenin de behandelfase. Gelukkig ben ik daarnaast getrouwd, vader, en opa, en heb de nodige hobby's. Een daarvan is transportmiddelen verzamelen en daarmee een blog schrijven. Dit blog begon met bussen, maar nu komen ook sleepboten, auto's trucks en dergelijke aan bod. Kijk en geniet met me mee, reageer, en vul gerust aan. Fouten zal ik ook graag verbeteren. In English: I'm Jeroen, till januari 2015 I was already 26 years working as a nurse in a psychiatric hospital, near Rotterdam, Worlds biggest harbour with more than 98 nationalities living within it's borders. First I worked on closed high care ward and the last years on a ward with mainly addicted people. I liked my work very much. In 2007 I got ill. I got the diagnose Poli Myositis, a musscle dissease. Al my mussles are inflamed. And last august I got another diagnose. Cancer. It's plaveicelcel carcinoma and treated with Chemo and radioation. So I've even less energy than the last years. Still I try to make something of my life and the blog is helping with surviving with some pleasure.
