Thread: Vasek Polak Team Query

    Vasek Polak Team Query

    Hi.

    Would anyone know the name of this gentleman?

    He was a salesperson at Vasek Polak in 1975. Any help would be amazing as it would fill a void in an article I am writing.

    Michael Hammond of the Porsche registry confirmed it is not Bert Olander. Imtwils was nice enough to state it was a "maybe". So still searching for a name, any help would be amazing. Thank you in advance.

    The top photo is Elliot Forbes-Robinson. The middle is maybe, Bert Olander, a salesman and excellent driver for Polak? He commonly drove the 908 on the west coast in SCCA A and B Sports racing.

    Hi Imtwils. Wow! Thank you so much for replying I really appreciate it. Interesting, I actually thought it was the same guy. They look somewhat similar. it's actually the salesman's name I am after for an article I am writing. Bert Olander. Amazing! I will do some research on the name to check if it's him. Really appreciate you taking the time to reply Imtwils. Thank you.

    Thank you NTW! Sorry, I have worked out how to delete the other photos to save on confusion. I am seeking information on the gentleman standing next to the silver 911 coupe. I am writing an article on another car and the gentleman standing next to the silver car was the dealer at the time at Vasek Polak the first owner's stories on how they stumbled upon and brought the car in a good way from the gentleman in the photo. So curious about his name and how to connect with him. Thank you so much for replying to my query.

    Hi Chuck. Thank you so much for your help. Is EFR the man next to the silver car? Sorry, I have worked out how to delete the other photos to save on confusion. Is EFR an ex-salesman from Vasek Polak? I am only seeking the name of the man next to the silver 911 coupe. Any help would be amazing. Thank you so much, Chuck.

    Correct, that is not EFR but I'm sure he knows everyone in the photo and that is the reason I suggested he might be a good contact.
