Born in 1961, I am married to my wife Sabine and we have a wonderful daughter, Loni. We are living in Oberschleissheim, a suburb of Munich, Germany.
I started the hobby with a 1959 Ducati 200 Elite motorcycle which I bought during a holiday stay in Riccione, Italy. In 1986 I organized the first swap meet which developed into Germany's second classic car fair, CLASSIC MOBIL, in 1993 which took place in Munich famous Olympic Hall.
I used to organize classic car rallies, model car fairs, special interest tours for readers of classic car magazines, I wrote articles and even a book for children - anything, as long as it was about classic cars or bikes.
Today I am especially interested in the classic car culture of foreign countries. Traveling is my second passion, therefore I think it is a wonderful gift to be able to meet and work together with fellow car guys abroad and learn about their cultures.
My personal favorite cars are those from the 1920s and 1930, with a tendency to american brands, but I have a huge sympathy for race cars from the 1950s and 60s.
