Our wonderful, unique Tarz Speedster “Smitty” is now also known in the USA – today we received the spring issue of ACBS’ (Antique & Classic Boat Society) magazine “Rudder” – and were pleased to receive a wonderful article about our little GDR star . Who would have thought that the Eastern Bloc would still conquer the West? 😉 We are definitely happy, send a big thank you to our Woody friends in the States and wish you all a great time despite Corona – to read, slow down and dream of having fun on the water soon with a smal,l but wonderful mahogany Boat. 🙂
Season start for Gents Barn & Gents Barn Consulting – time to get back on the road and (y)our cars, bikes and boats ready for the Spring and Summer season! We hope you all had a great and cosy winter time and that you share the passion for classic vehicles as much as we do! 2020 will be an exciting year – new plans soon to be announced. Stay tuned! 😉
This morning we received entry vouchers for Boot Düsseldorf 2020 from our favorite shipyard! Many thanks, Bootswerft Baumgart! As always, we try everything to be there – even if we have to travel a little further this time to our favorite place! In any case, we wish all other water sports enthusiasts, who are also planning to be there, a safe journey and a great trade fair with many beautiful boats – preferably in a classic wooden construction, of course! 😉
The Gents Barn team wishes all of our dear customers, fans and friends of classic locomotion wonderful and relaxing holidays, a great, contemplative Christmas and a happy New Year! See you again or get to know each other in 2020!
Today Gents Barn was at Boot & Fun as well as the classic car fair Motorworld Classics in Berlin! There was a lot to see for all enthusiasts of classic boats and classic cars – we think it’s always worth the trip to Berlin in the cold winter! Our managing director especially maintained contacts in the classic boat scene and stayed in hall 23 with the classic boats. In addition to many good conversations with friends and boat lovers, there was no shortage of talking “the woodyboater way” – a great day and we are already looking forward to next year. So we’ll see you from 18th to 22nd November 2020 – in Berlin, of course!
Due to the early completion of the restoration and reconstruction of our famous Miss Persia, the 1936 Gar Wood Speedster of the Shah of Persia equipped with the original Packard Marine racing engine, it was very important to us to join what is probably the best club for Packard enthusiasts here in Europe and to become an active member – at the Nordic Packard Owners Club. With almost 350 Packard automobiles, it is the largest club outside the United States and the few German members are therefore part of the huge, Scandinavian fan community of this legendary, luxury brand. Although Gents Barn is the only member with the two Packard Marine engines 1M-245 and 1M-245 R (acing), it is nevertheless a great pleasure for us to be part of the automotive Packard Club scene. Thank you for the friendly reception – we look forward to the future exchange and participation in many club meetings in the far north!
On Sunday, the new TÜV HANSE ClassiC calendar 2020 will be presented to the public at the 13th TÜV HANSE classic car meeting in Hamburg – Gents Barn is happy to have been included in this wonderful 2020 calendar with great vintage car photographs by Carlos Kella! Many thanks to TÜV HANSE and TÜV SÜD AG as well as Sway Books for choosing our woodie. The calendar is available for order here! The Hamburgers and Hanseaten among you, we wish for today’s classic car meeting at TÜV HANSE a lot of fun and the best weather! Ahoy from the Hanseatic city of Greifswald!
