History:
Karsten bought the 1200 in May 2009 from an elderly woman. The car was at its first owner at that time. It took him a lot of persuading and three months of time to make the deal perfect. The car is mostly in its original paint and there was no welding needed except of two small spots in the rear wheel arch. Karsten drove the car until 2011. Then he did the first modifications to get the Cal Look.
