In the beginning...

Nice video & commentary from Jeff Zwart, top Porsche photographer & Pikes Peak record holder!

Ok- so I googled this:

Gmündmesiter, Jim Barrington

“In total, I have owned 5 Gmünd’s, now just the one, chassis’ no 32, 41, 45, 50 and 57…and all at one time, but no longer. Of these cars I wish I still had no 57…it and number 50 are my favorites”, says Jim.

This Gmünd, chassis #356/2-050, was the cover car for the July 2013 issue of "Panorama". According to the accompanying article, it is owned by Jeff Zwart himself, who purchased it from Jim Barrington two years earlier.

Another 1949 Gmünd, chassis #356/2-040, was featured on a recent episode of Jerry Seinfeld's "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee".
