All friends of Scandinavian fashion should visit our store these coming Saturdays – the new Fall / Winter collection 2018 has arrived! Wonderful colours such as “Oak Melange” or “Sand Melange” set the scene for the colder days and if – after a very long, hot summer – it gets really freezing outside, the popular Holebrook knee socks will come right handy – the so-called “snowflake socks” speak for themselves. So, see you soon in our Holebrook-corners for Ladies and Gents here at Ladies Cottage & Gents Barn.
It was time again for a photo shooting – the well-known US-classic car photographer Carlos Kella called us a few weeks ago and came today along with his whole team to shoot Germany’s most beautiful photo model – of course, our Chrysler Town & Country from 1950. Together with the dear colleagues of Lucky Lola we had a fantastic, sunny morning – see you soon again and we look forward to the beautiful photos.
After a happy get-together at the Street Mag Show in Hanover, a few weeks later, an unexpected, but really nice call from Hamburg reached us – Carlos Kella was asking if he could work with our show-winner to feature it in one of his next publications. And so we are pleased that he and his team and the dear colleagues of Lucky Lola from close-by Gütersloh are our guests on the coming bank holiday, shooting our Chrysler in pin-up style. It goes without saying that we have the right model for this once again. But her we won’t reveal at this point. Be curious about our very first images during our shooting day – as usual on our Insta account of Gents Barn. But above all, look forward to the final result, with which Carlos will certainly hit a bull’s-eye again! We just say, “We wish every day would be Woody-Wednesday!”
Last Sunday, the time had finally come – the classic car rally Hamm erFahren made a wonderful stop-over at Gents Barn in favor of the hospice in Hamm! And what a sight to see – 120 shiny and beautiful classic cars stopped and visited our showroom. Could all the drivers guess which automobile brand is shown on the logo of our Speedster’s steering wheel? Tricky, tricky, but finally a challenge for the participants! And in the end more than half could name the right solution: Wartburg, IFA, or Barkas were all correct answers. Yet, the nicest thing was the joy experienced – the many, good-humored faces, the great technical discussions and, of course, the beautiful ambiance here at Schloss Moehler as well as the unique ride around the castle, which Gents Barn arranged exclusively for the rally participants. We’ll just say: See you soon again here at Gents Barn – and now, enjoy our small image gallery (a full view opens with a click on the picture – our special thanks to the nice photographer, Sabine Begett).
Tomorrow, this Sunday, here at our Ladies Cottage, it’s all about parking, guessing, and getting a stamp – the well-known vintage car rally “Hamm erFahren” in favor of the Hamm Hospice will make a stop-over here with us. Well over 120 classic cars and bikes as well as 280 enthusiastic vintage drivers and co-drivers will visit our showroom. We did prepare a nice little challenge for them – they have to take the third special task shortly before the lunch break at our place. We are curious to see who will master our small guessing game best – and thus, will receive the special prize we have prepared just for this occasion. If you can not attend with your classic car yourself, you should still stop by and admire the many two- and four-wheeled, shiny classics – between 11 am and 1 pm the starter field should stop by at Schloss Moehler. We look forward to all visitors.
This coming Sunday, we will be packing our bags once again and visiting a fairly new, yet wonderful classic car meeting at lake Schiedersee, located in Eastwestfalia/Germany – the “Rock around the lake 2.0” meeting! Being at a lake anyway, we decided to also take our lovely Tarz Speedster with us. So see you all soon – at lake Schiedersee.
This evening, Torben from gents Barn and his passion for classic cars and boats was shown on the German TV station WDR! His short spin with the journalist Christian & his team can be seen here on the FB-website (from 3:41min onwards). Enjoy as much as we did and thanks again to the filming team!
What a weekend – it was not only our start into the holidays, moreover did we celebrate this with our participation at one of Germany’s largest US-Car meetings in Hanover with 2.500 other classic cars and their proud owners. At the very end – we were simply speechless! We won the “Best of Show”-Award for our “Black Beast”, our fantastic 1950 Chrysler Town & Country 2-Door Newport Coupé! What an honor! We are very thankful and appreciate this great award! Thank you to everyone involved in making this possible!
