A TOUCH OF GLAMMER

Paul Reichelt, email

I ENJOYED your story on Creative Cars (Blowin’ Gaskets, SM, Jun ’17), and thought I’d share this photo with you (below). Back in 1988 I did a few weeks’ work experience at Creative Cars and I worked on the very first Glammer. This pic was taken by me out the back of the Creative Cars workshop. As you can see, that first car was painted gold, but was painted white a short time later.

The guy with his back to you is Martin and the other guy from memory is Rob. The court case your article referred to was just beginning as this car was finished, and I remember the guys saying they might have to destroy it.

I had a great time with everyone there and it remains a fond memory. Because of my time there I went on to become a spray painter and my family has built and shown cars over the years.
