Om Youngtimer Cars
Vi kjøper biler i Norge, men importerer også fra Japan via firmaer som har oppkjøpere der. Slik er vi sikre på å få inn gode biler.
Youngtimer Cars har ikke mange biler på lager, men de vi til enhver tid har, forsøker vi skal være god valuta for pengene og bortimot perfekte.
Det er allikevel viktig å tenke på at bilene er 20-35 år gamle og ikke nye.
Jan Normann Endresen har hatt en livslang interesse for biler, bildesign, bilkonstruktører og bilhistorie. Forruten Jaguar, Porsche, Ferrari, har interessen for Mercedes alltid vært stor.

MERCEDES MOST IMPORTANT DESIGNER FOR DECADES
Bruno Sacco (born 12 November 1933) is an Italian automobile designer who served as the head of styling at German car giant Daimler-Benz between 1975 and 1999.
According to Sacco himself, he was first inspired towards car design as an eighteen-year-old, after seeing a Raymond Loewy-styled 1950 Studebaker Commander Regal as he cycled through the streets of Tarvisio in 1951. Afterwards he could not get the car out of his head, and «knew [his] life had been decided.»
After studying mechanical engineering at the Polytechnic University of Turin he attempted to seek work at the renowned Ghia and Pininfarina carrozzerie , before moving to Germany when his efforts proved unsuccessful. Daimler-Benz hired him as a stylist in 1958, and although he intended to stay only briefly, his marriage to Berliner Annemarie lbe in 1959 and the birth of their daughter Marina the following year made him reassess his plans.

It took several years for Sacco to fully understand the culture at Daimler-Benz, since by his own attestation there were no «written [styling or design] laws». After following the philosophy of company co-founder Gottlieb Daimler, ‘Nothing but the best’, he began to better appreciate the direction he should follow. He has long advocated «horizontal homogeneity» and «vertical affinity», terms he uses to describe the continuity and homogeneity of Mercedes designs.
Horizontal homogeneity is the common styling cues between different models in the manufacturer’s range; there should be a strong visual relationship between the smallest and largest cars. Vertical affinity is the requirement for cars not to be rendered stylistically obsolete by their successors, ensuring greater timelessness of design. Sacco felt this was of special importance to Mercedes, whose cars’ reputation for longevity meant that their typical life cycle was 20 to 30 years.
