IM Christmas card and Treffen X wrap up

Treffen X


WISHING YOU A VERY HAPPY CHRISTMAS & ALL THE BEST FOR 2015
May the year to come find you with open roads and clear skies.

Intermeccanica Treffen XIt is hard for me to believe that this past August 2224th was our 10th Anniversary Tour. Seems like only yesterday that I was barbequing salmon with my staff at our first ever event!

The 2014 Tour took us back by popular request to the southern Okanagan Valley of beautiful British Columbia. We based our tour out of the town of Osoyoos and the Spirit Ridge Resort and Spa. We had perfect weather and I was thrilled to see a capacity group made up of many returning friends and a great number of first time participants. It is great to see this group reconnect so quickly after a full year apart. Friday night’s welcome dinner was preceded by a private tour of Tin Horn Creek Vineyards Winery with proprietor and wine maker Sandra Oldfield touring us through their vines and explaining to us about the unique micro climate of the southern Okanagan Valley. This was followed by a private tasting with canapés. Dinner took place at Miradoro Restaurant next door to the winery, where Manny and his staff made this a memorable event with an incredible table set on their beautiful patio, giving us an uninterrupted view of the valley to our south as the sun set. The meal was exquisite and everybody enjoyed themselves.

Saturday was Tour Day. We started with gourmet breakfasts in our room, catered by Holly’s sister, Penny Bees of Bees Catering. After a quick drivers’ meeting, the group of 24 cars divided themselves (with a bit of help) into faster & slower groups and we went off into the fresh morning air through some of the most fun and twisty roads I know.

Our first stop was about one hour north for coffee. When those of us in the slower group arrived, the faster guys had taken all the tables in the sun at our selected coffee shop: this is the reward for being in the lead!

After a bit of relaxation and even some time to take in a local craft market, we went off again for our longest leg of the Tour: up the steep and twisty valley slopes and through beautiful forests and meadows, eventually crossing over a pass on what must be 15 kilometres of the most fun you can ever have in a car between the Okanagan Valley and the Similkameen Valley. If you are ever in this area, just remember “Green Mountain Road”.

We lunched at the Grist Mill in Keremeos, an historic British Columbia destination where the manager Kim English gave us an introduction to the Mill and its importance to the local valley and the gold rush in the Yukon. Lunch under the trees with fresh lavender lemonade followed. Everybody had time to relax and check out the Mill if they wanted to, or just sit and chat.

Our last stop on the Tour was at Forbidden Fruits Winery along the shores of the Similkameen River where proprietors Steve Venables and Kim Brind’Amour provided beautiful fruit baskets from this organic orchard for our group to enjoy as Steve explained and poured tastings of their many delicious award winning fruit wines.The group returned to our host hotel in time to have a rest or take a swim before our dinner was served on the hotel’s patio overlooking Lake Osoyoos.

This was a fun filled day with laughs and yacking going into the early hours of Sunday! Sunday morning we brought the group together for a cars & coffee event on the crush pad of the NK’MIP (pronounced In-ka-meep) Cellars Winery at our host hotel, giving everybody another chance to look at cars and compare notes! This event was followed by our last official Tour event: a wine tasting at Road 13 Winery a few kilometres north of our host hotel. Nice selection of wines and an amazing view of storm clouds heading over the hills, but not traveling fast enough to cause any tops to be put up!

All together another great event and only possible with the support and participation of such amazing Intermeccanica customers& friends. I also must recognize the hard work of Robert Ruskey who makes this event happen every year! Also my wife Holly and daughter Ivy who, with me, was responsible for the Tour Route Book. It was also great to have Robert and Lana, Kevin and Karen, and Ali and Mashid from my staff there. I hope you give some thought to joining us in

2015 for our 11th Tour to be held Next September 18th20th.

Intermeccanica Winter 2014 Newsletter

Intermeccanica 2014 Winter Newsletter

I guess it is safe to say that life is good!! I write this newsletter from the lanai of a long time Intermeccanica customer and friend, Sandy Lynne, in Kihei, Maui, Hawaii!

 
 
 

Change and more change
It has been too long since my last newsletter and much has happened at and with Intermeccanica in this time. In brief: Intermeccanica moved premises of over 22 years in August of 2013. Man, there was a lot of stuff and even more dust!! Our current location in New Westminster is about 20 minutes east of the old location along our Hwy #1 and is working out fine. (Still working on setup 1½ years later!) For all of you who have visited, I thank you. For those of you who plan to visit, call me if you get lost!

The “new” Intermeccanica premises at the Meccanica Building are coming along very nicely. This space will be a real jewel, thanks to the commitment, great effort and support of Scott Cressey and his whole team on this project. This new building is right down the street from the old shop. Scott has created a new space on the ground floor of a beautiful new, car themed, condo development. This will be the first time ever that the City of Vancouver will allow light industrial and residential spaces to be shared. We will have beautiful show room and production space in one of Vancouver’s trendiest new neighbourhoods. Expected completion of the space is summer/fall 2014. More details on this in coming newsletters.

 
 
 

Innovation drives us

Current Intermeccanica production is running about 50% modern liquid cooled and 50% traditional air cooled. Both of these products are evolving with continual R&D on the liquid cooled, including the development of “hidden” a/c and heating systems for a true “original” interior look. We are also working on a new cooling system layout which, if successful, will offer a bigger fuel tank and improved front trunk space. On the air cooled front, we have worked with CB Performance’s more recent generation of fuel injection systems as well as newly available HD aluminum push rods which are a great addition to a proven platform. Contact me for more details.

We are currently putting the final touches on our 2014 price lists and will have these available soon. We are planning on offering pricing both in our traditional “à la carte” format as well as the newer “factory spec” format. As many of you may have noticed, we have been asked by the US D.O.T. to improve clarity on our website as to the fact that Intermeccanica only sells coaches or rolling chassis versions of our products into the US market. This has always been the case as we have always relied on US side partners for the supply of drive line and final assembly to our US customers. This is not a change, simply a clarification as required by the US D.O.T. If you have any questions about this please feel free to contact me.

Another small change that has taken place is the renaming of our 356 models to Intermeccanica S and Intermeccanica D. Again, this was a voluntary move Intermeccanica has undertaken to clarify any copyright questions that could arise from Volkswagen, the new Porsche parent company.

 
 
 

Special projects
Intermeccanica is undertaking a couple of special projects at this time as a way of testing the market in related automotive ventures.

First, we have begun the restoration of a 1967 Intermeccanica Italia for a long time Intermeccanica customer and friend, Gerry. This is our first foray into this field. Progress is steady. We are excited for the prospect of soon seeing this Italia with a fresh coat of paint! This is the first real bridge between the Italian and North American Intermeccanica products and I hope the first of a new line of work for Intermeccanica!

 
 
 

Another undertaking is the “backdating” of a Porsche 964 into a 911 ST inspired hot rod for another long time Intermeccanica customer and friend, Mike. This is proving to be lots of fun. We have just received the new body panels so soon we should see some nice progress on this unique project.

If you are interested in further details on either of these projects or have an idea of something you think would be a good match for our skills, please contact me.

Smaller projects in process at the shop now include the restoration of a Typ-82 Kubel, an older Roadster, and the upgrade/repair of a couple of older IM products. If you have been thinking about having some work performed on your Intermeccanica, please contact me. I would be thrilled to discuss this with you.

 
 
 

IM Tour
Our 9th annual Intermeccanica Tour took place this past July 12 to 14. We returned to the familiar surroundings of beautiful Whistler, B.C. for two days, with a wrap up open house at the new Intermeccanica location in New Westminster. I was thrilled to have such great support from long time IM Tour participants and excited to have so many new friends join us for this event.

I am thrilled to announce that this year’s IM Tour will take place August 22nd to 24th, 2014. We will be returning by popular demand to British Columbia’s Okanogan wine country for a fun filled weekend of top notch drives & entertaining with our Intermeccanica friends new and old! Please let Robert in our office know if you are interested as we were close to capacity last year. More details around this great weekend will be available soon.

 
 
 

Carlisle the UK & Europe
To my IM customers and friends on the east coast and mid-west, I want to let you know that I will be back at the Carlisle Import and Specialty Car Show in Carlisle, Pennsylvania May 16 to 18 in conjunction with Michael & David my dealers, Intermeccanica US from Southfield, Michigan. I am already aware of one IM customer making the trek to Carlisle all the way from California! I would love to organize an IM customer dinner for the Friday night, May 16, if there is sufficient interest. Please contact me if you would like to participate in such an event. If you are interested in looking at Intermeccanica’s as well as competitor’s products, and you can make the time to visit Carlisle, you will not be disappointed. If you are coming out please let me know so that we can set up a time to meet.

For all my enthusiastic Intermeccanica friends in the UK and Europe, I am thrilled to let you know that I am working with new partners in the London area to bring Intermeccanica products into the UK and hopefully continental Europe. We are trying to do this in a fashion that will make our Intermeccanica 356’s more competitive in the UK and European markets. The first of these products will be on the water shortly. Please contact me for further information.

I know that for many of you this has been a long and cold winter, the good news is that spring and all the automotive fun that this season brings is only a few weeks away so if you have been thinking that this is your year to build an Intermeccanica please reach out to me or to Michael in Michigan. We can still get you behind the wheel of your custom built Intermeccanica for this season. If you are looking for pre-owned we can assist you in locating the perfect Intermeccanica for you to enjoy! I look forward to hearing from you and would ask that you forward this note to anyone you know who you think might enjoy reading!

Please see the links below for more photos and details.

Thank you!

Henry

Intermeccanica Italia Restoration

Intermeccanica 1967 Italia restoration project

Any of you who have visited Intermeccanica in the last decade or more will know that we have had an original Intermeccanica Italia at the shop.  Intermeccanica originally purchased this Italia to become the basis for a design for a “new” Italia project for us to custom build.  Well, it turns out that digital design is the method of today. So the years 2006 through 2008 were spent digitally refining our vision for a new Italia.  (For more information on this exciting concept please contact me at henry@intermeccanica.com)

This left the poor 1967 Italia abandoned and in slightly sad shape. Fast forward to last summer when our pending move motivated us to resolve this storage issue!  As luck would have it, long time Intermeccanica friend, sports car enthusiast and collector Gerry Sung stepped forward to purchase the Italia and to engage Intermeccanica in it’s complete restoration.  This is a bit of a departure from our regular daily business as you know, but interestingly also not all that different.

Over the last few months the Italia has been stripped to bare metal and is now coming through the paint preparation process.  This is not a full time job at the shop but the progress is steady and very rewarding for my crew and I and we also hope for Gerry!  He is now getting close to having to choose the final paint colour.

If you are interested in taking a look at the progress to date or in keeping up with this project please check out our Flickr site where we are posting photos. http://flic.kr/s/aHsjF5KzQe
