ok, just bought a bus.
written down the side are the words 'abschieppd bergungen' on the door is 'kolb'.
on the other side of the van is 'auto kolb'.
so, i reckon abschieppd is the company name? i know bergungen means salvage. auto means auto, but what the hell does KOLB mean!
anybody?

I put kolb into an online translator. The English word according to that is - wait for it - kolb! Guess it'd never heard of it before!

Actually auto means car.
Kolb is a name.
and I couldn't find anything on abschieppd but abschied means separated.

it probably actually says abschleppd. abschleppdienst is breakdown/recovery/towing service (abschlepp= tow (literally = pull away).

kolb is maybe the name of the firm or maybe they were piston specialists, kˆlben = pistons. :D

Sorry for the highjack but I could do with some Germanic language advice, I've tried Babelfish et al but without success. I need the German for 'bonnet' if anyone can help.

Thanking you.


:edit: CAR bonnet. I have milinary terms in abundance.
