15.9.2007: GERHARD HÖLLER (MISTER CUSTOCA) CELEBRATES HIS 70. BIRTHDAY

Only the chosen few of the Foundation’s core team have been invited to join the remarkable birthday celebration of Gerhard’s #70.

Back in the late Sixties of the bygone century he had established his CUSTOCA fiberglass company in Kraubath, Styria to produce several hundred kits of Dune Buggies, Strato, Hurrycane and Taifun closed coupes as well as motorboats.

In the nineties he shut down his shop and planned to retire. No way, - as some enthusiasts, who are rebuilding his cars continue to ask him for advice and help.

He is still as energetic as ever, supervising a total rebuild of a Hurrycane or knocking up an engine lid (from the original mould) to replace a missing item for a specimen in Belgium.

During the last few years these Austrian Kit Cars have reached cult status, especially when properly restored.
