Shop Shots 2014

Here’s Austrian race car driver for BMW • Red Bull, Dieter Quester’s 1956 Olds 88 Convertible (Fabulous Restorations built the Continental Kit [among other things!]).
Dieter first raced in the 1969 German Grand Prix and participated in 53, 24-Hour Races. He competed in a single Formula One race and finished ninth.  On January 15, 2006, he won the 24 Hours race at the Dubai Autodrome on a BMW M3 together with Hans-Joachim Stuck, Philipp Peter and Toto Wolff. Stuck and Quester returned in the 24 Hours Nürburgring, but their BMW was destroyed in a crash at night that involved an oil spill and seven cars. During the weekend of September 9–10, 2006, Dieter won the Britcar 24 Hours of Silverstone in a Duller Motorsport BMW MZ4, and on January 14, 2007 he again won the 24 Hours race at the Dubai Autodrome in the Duller Motorsport BMW Z4. In September 2007 he and Duller won the 24 Hours of Silverstone in the Duller BMW Z4, by a margin of 30 laps.
Whenever Dieter's toolin’ around Fort Lauderdale wave hello as he cruises by in his merry Oldsmobile.  He’s just another FABulous Customer! By the way, Dieter was born May 30th, 1939 and it's certainly a pleasure having such a brilliant man around to talk shop.
