maintained all of the other cars and
motorcycles by himself as well.
In addition to the wonderful
vehicles on display, the walls of the
garage are lined with awards in the
forms of trophies, plaques, and
ribbons. There is BMW-inspired
artwork throughout. There's even a
section of hooks with lanyards and
event passes from events that
Lothar has attended, which hang
below a copy of BMW CCA's
Roundel magazine with a photo of
his award-winning '37 328 on the
cover. One recognizable print
hanging on the wall was a photo
of Lothar's Z8 taken by our very
own dB production manager,
Raine Mantysalo.
The history of the '37 328
(serial number 85014) has been
documented and covered in a
number of publications. It was one
of six black 328s built in 1937 and
only 464 were produced from 1936
to 1940. It has a rich racing history,
it was lost during World War II, and it
organized parts and tools, and
shelves full of spare vintage parts.
Additionally there were more BMWinspired
banners and signage on
the walls, which included a number
of rally plates from the rallies that
Lothar has competed in. I can only
imagine the stories and experiences
behind each one of those rally
plates.
When we headed back to the
was subsequently found and
brought to the United States in the
1950s. Lothar bought it unassembled
in boxes in 2004 and performed
the vast majority of the restoration
himself. After the restoration,
Lothar won many shows with the
328. He was invited to bring it
to Pebble Beach in 2016, where
the car won Best in Class (N-1,
BMW Centennial Pre-war category).
When I asked what the hardest part
of the restoration was, Lothar pointed
at the toolkit. Finding all of those
original BMW tools for the BMW
toolkit was a challenging task.
A trip downstairs to the workshop
revealed a few projects in
progress: another E9, a '75 2002,
and a 1934 AM-4. There was
plenty of space for work, excellent
lighting, a lift, cabinets full of
front of the garage Lothar offered to
bring the '37 328 outside. Yes,
please! I was able to take some
photos while Jack got a ride.
Seeing this car in daylight and
hearing its engine revving was
something else - the icing on
the cake of a " most excellent "
afternoon.
