travelers would lead to a close friendship between two American
and European families. A European, who
possessed near reverent childhood memories of America,

As a young man he and his young friends would marvel over the technologically
advanced 1950's American Finned
Cars; His father would engineer the engines for the
Mercedes-Benz Type 300, which included
first iteration of the fastest production car of its day; the
300SL considered the first supercar.
His brother would later engineer the first all wheel drive
car; the Audi Quattro and he would rise to the position of a
worldwide sales chief for Daimler Mercedes. Over the decades he
and his wife would visit America taking in its grandeur and what
she has achieved in just 500 years; often commentating; "Can you
imagine". International Events
