About Bernd S. Koehling

Hi there, my name is Bernd. I grew up in the 1950s and 1960s in Northern Germany. My interest in anything automotive started already at a very young age with visits to the Nürburgring with my dad. I also grew up with Mercedes cars in my family and an uncle of mine, who had a small collection of pre-war cars, introduced me at the end of the 1960s to vintage cars.

That virus never left me again, so from the mid 1970s I started collecting vintage cars myself. Naturally my first such car was a Mercedes, a rather neglected prewar 170V Cabriolet B. Later additions were from a 200D fintail, 250SE, 350SL, 300d Adenauer and a 280SE 3.5 Coupe. Mercedes cars became a passion I have kept and further developed throughout the years with an interest now also in more modern Mercedes cars, here especially the S-class derived coupes and everything SL and SLK.

My other weakness revolves around British cars, here especially Alvis and Jaguar. If you would like to know more about me, my books or want to read my blog with selected Mercedes stories, why don't you visit my website: benz-books.com
