Can anyone provide information about Armin Fischer and his two companies, AHI and Sports Cars Stuttgart? Armin Fischer was a German importer of De Tomaso cars, and apparently sold a large number. It would be a valuable contribution to our knowledge of De Tomaso history if we could locate him and, ideally, obtain copies of his records.
Armin Fischer passed away some years ago. All his records went to Marcel Schaub of Switzerland.
Thank you very much! Your information is very helpful.
Can you share some history about his two companies? They had some involvement in racing Panteras and seemed to specialize in selling higher performance and racing variants, so it would be interesting to find out more about the two companies and about Mr. Fischer.
You should ask Roland in Hamburg. He worked some time with him.
Armin Fischer became the German DeTomaso Concessionaire in '70 by taking the last 52 Mangustas in unfinished states and completing them (some with locally sourced Mercedes parts) as part of the deal, since the brand new Pantera was taking all of Allessandro's time. Fischer also sponsored a few local racers- one was Michael Schumacher. Reportedly, Fischer's warehouse had an ex-Schumacher open wheel racer stored in it. Roland sent me information on his DeTomaso connection, which was featured in the POCA Newsletter some years back.
Thanks for the information, Jack. I will rummage around in my back-issues to find the article.
MWELTER, I corresponded with Roland about this previously, but he was not able to provide any information other than that Fischer owned both AHI and Sports Cars Stuttgart.
