Also you may want to read my ebay auction and notice that I say , and this is a direct quote "930 670 0171 was originally sold to famous Swiss privateer Claude Haldi a veteran of 34 running’s of the famed Le Mans 24 Hour race and 29 outings at the Nurburgring. Haldi was a consistent competitor in European road racing, hill climbs and the Monte Carlo rally."

I have an email from Jurgen telling me the car in question was first owned by Georg Loos and that Loos sold the car to Haldi after the 1976 running of Le Mans. Jurgen has since changed that history and I have no doubt he is 100% correct but yes at first Jurgen thought this was a Loos car.

Since you seem to have some kind of an issue I will be happy to PM you my phone number and why don't you give me a call and we can talk about it.

and if anyone would like to read the auction details shoot me a PM and I will give you a link to it so you can read exactly what it says.
No issue . I have been researching a 934 I was interested in that was upgraded to a 962 motor and later Kremer body. When I looked up your car #0171 in the same publication ( John Starkey's published 2008 ) it listed it as first raced by George Loos GELCO racing. "If correct" it was a piece of good additional history. There can sometimes be conflicting documentation on cars built 35+ years ago even by noted authors quoting from the same source at different times.
