This 79 Year Old German Is Driving a 54 Year Old Tractor To Norway And Back



Winfried Langner has driven his antique tractor from Germany to Mallorca and back. Now he's off to Norway - and plans to be back for his 80th birthday.

His tractor - a 54 year old Deutz he calls "Robert" - can do a maximum speed of 18kph (9mph) but Winfried has already driven from Germany to Mallorca and back. And now he's off again on a 7600km journey through Denmark, Norway and Sweden.

The tractor was bought in 2002 and Winfried restored the machine until was ready for the great adventures.



Winfired and a friend set out on May with an expectation that it will take about 5 months to complete the journey. The one deadline is that he wants to be back on November 19 for his 80th birthday.
