Could this be the Danube in Budapest, or are the ships too big?

Way too big for the Danube, these deep-sea vessels. On the Danube only much flatter inland vessels can go, due the many bridges. In a TV-reportage about a boatman on his trip from Rotterdam to Galati they had said the max. possible height, but I forgot the exact measures. The bigger inland vessels even have height-adjustable wheelhouses.

The Danube is unnavigable for ships, bigger than an "Europaschiff" Klasse VII (sorry, only in German: http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donauschifffahrt and http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Europaschiff ). As there are several low bridges, the vessels had to be lower than that, which can ship on the Rhine.

For seeing deep-sea vessels, crossing the country, you have to go to http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nord-Ostsee-Kanal , http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panama_Canal or http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suez_Canal

Thanks.

Come to think of it, I wonder if the car has been inserted into restored old stock footage, like how characters were put into Stockholm streets in that film about a Swedish singer.

The plates are made with German DIN-tools. This font was/still is used on Turkish plates, but slightly modified. So the "3" looks different - but here we have complete German letters.

I'm not convinced about old stock footage, as the vessel in the background looks modern, the loading crane, too.

No sidemarkers if a US spec car so 1967 or earlier? When/if we get more footage, it might be interesting to see if the car has headrests.
