Car Shortage and a Trip to the Dealerships

I was recently tasked by my father-in-law to help him find and purchase a new car. As many might be aware, September 2021 is NOT a great time to purchase a new car as Covid-19 shutdowns have affected the specialized computer chips necessary for car production. To make a long story short, I visited a couple of dealerships and spoke to many more via email and telephone and finally got my FIL a great deal in this climate - about $1,300 off a new Subaru Outback that will be here in a couple of weeks.    But while that is...

Missing Monterey Car Week 2021

Due to unforeseen circumstances, I missed Monterey Car week entirely this year. Normally I go out there for a few days, take in a few formal events and reconnect with friends and customers.

Hans Lohrer - Porsche Graphic Designer

Hans Lohrer - Porsche Graphic Designer

This article I wrote for Petrolicious is a trip down memory lane because I wrote it all the way back in 2014. Thinking about this article now vis a vis the posters I've been attracted to, Lohrer is credit on quite a number of my favorites including the "Poodle," "Helmet," and "Golf Clubs," the last of which is part of the sought after "lifestyle" series of Porsche showroom posters. While Erich Strenger is often credited with giving Porsche its graphic identity, I do believe Hans Lohrer was a key man and overlooked today.
