Rudiger Gunter von Koniczek

Rudi moved to Canada with his family in the fifty's. He started collecting Dinky Toy cars, trucks, and motorcycles. He then began to collect scale models and as soon as he could reach the pedals, he started to race at the Mosport International Raceway in Ontario. His love of automobiles led him to train as a mechanic with Mercedes-Benz in Toronto. A trip out West to Victoria, BC in 1968 inspired his move to Vancouver Island. He has lived here and worked on 300SL and numerous other pre-and-post War vehicles ever since. In his spare time he reads, cooks, travels, and rides motorcycles with his friends and beautiful wife Patricia.
