Oldtimer & Veteranenservice Löflath
A blast down the Autobahn to gorgeous Bavaria took us to the workshop of young and promising Stephan Löflath in Wildpoldsried. We’ll call his shop OVSL for convenience and to avoid pronunciation induced jaw cramps:-). Stephan is vastly experienced having learned his trade working for another workshop specialised in classic Maseratis. Several clients asked him to take their cars from the previous shop to his new one. We can see why, as the quality of craftsmanship is truly outstanding.
He is very ably helped by Manuel who speaks perfect English with a New Zealand accent as he spent his youth there. Manuel is as dedicated as he is competent and gave us a demonstration by dismantling a leaf spring suspension and talking us through it.
We took a superbly-restored 3500 GT for a drive in beautiful hills with great views of the mountains. It is not so far from Neuschwanstein castle. That drive was as pleasing as the scenery was enjoyable with the sound of music replaced by a 3500 GT!
