The History of the 102 dates back to its purchase in Germany by perhaps a US servicemen in 1956. The car was brought to the US in the early sixties where it was purchased by Jeff Hardin of Millis, MA. A graduation gift from his dad, Jeff used the car to travel back and forth to the University of Massachusetts, traveling many miles on the Mass Pike even in snow.
In 1968 the car was put into storage until Rick Neves of Millis, MA purchased and restored it in 2003. In 2005 it began a new life as a show car winning several local awards until 2008 when it began its racing career with the VSCCA and VRG racing organizations.
The 102 has competed in the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix as well as the New Jersey Vintage Grand Prix, and traveled to Lime Rock Park and Watkins Glen as well as Pocono, Thompson, Palmer and the New Jersey Motorsport Park.
