    Iconic Porsche tuner Gemballa was the brainchild of German businessman Uwe Gemballa. His life ended tragically in 2010 and his aspiring-tuner son was left struggling to carry on his father’s legacy, because his own name now belonged to someone else. How crazy is this story? Well, there’s a vehicle full of homemade remote-controlled machine guns, so there's that.

There would have to be compelling reasons to get a high profile person to travel to South Africa from where they could be kidnapped and murdered! These are not acts undertaken lightly, and would have to be balanced against the media and International Police attention and investigations, especially if the kidnapping and murder was meant to convey a message or warning to others! Given that the kidnapping and murder could have been committed anywhere, to do it in the country in which the suspected party lives and runs their businesses from would only direct attention and suspicion on them, which by any definition is counterproductive... Whatever it was that led to the kidnapping and murder, there is only speculation, not established facts. The bereaved family have lost their beloved husband and father, but have no idea why or whom would do such a thing...

Repent to Jesus Christ! Are you a sinner? Mark 2:17 King James Version 17 When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

I was station in Germany from 1998 to 2006 and the German Deutsche Marks was never high than the dollar in 1999 15 dollars was 48.75 Deutsche Marks because the mark was 3.25DM to 1USD at that time, the value changed a lot, so how did you get $700,000 from 390,000DM because now it would be .604045 DM to 1USD which would be $234,000 USD.

First off, you're an awesome presenter truly ! Congrats on your continued success here. Secondly, wow, what a story and life of father, and son. These designs are incredibly visionary, fun and yes, comical but it is so amazing I LOVE THEM ALL and I don't often say that about anything. I love adventurous, ambitious and personal designs, so passionate, and dedicated. Giving so much enjoyment and creativity to the world. I feel grateful and honored to know he existed but saddened by his terrible end ! I love the evolution through the son, of course right !?! Wow ! I could never afford a car but I love love love looking at them. I subscribed and liked. Best always and take care everyone!! -Vi An MUSIC

6:09 These numbers are way off! In 1984 the Dollar peaked against the Mark at about 2.85. So if the cost was 390,00DM the USD value would be about $136,842. This would translate to about $359,560 today. Math is essential yet again.

Another thing you forget to mention it looks like the rich class get you mess with their cars and make them go as fast as they can and how they want but your regular average American citizen has to go by whatever stupid guidelines they want to throw at us like our exhaust modifications in California can no longer be done open your eyes America and you're a complete failure when you fail to mention all these compromising issues to American citizens...🤔🇺🇲😲
