Gents Barn, Timeless Coolness.


Gents Barn Babe

By popular demand, we are continuing Young Gun week into this week. We have had a great response to this new feature, and plenty to go. Today we travel to Germany. Yup, just North of Berlin. East of Poland and a tad south of Denmark.

I think the red dot is right. I know this much, its gonna be cold in a month..and dark

Meet Gents Barn, a different type of business. Sales, and marketing, and brokering. It’s a life style brand, and once again. Art first. Global and clearly shows how the internet has changed our little community worldwide. One thing is for sure, next time I am in Berlin, once this Covid crap is over, I am headed to Gents barn. In my Tweed coat and dapper hat.

Where are you boys?

You may remember them form the Big Lake Tahoe show.. We LOST a month ago. Not bitter, nope, not one bit. Okay a bit. Okay.. I WAS ROBBED! .. Breath in, breath out.. Okay..okay… Anyway, I Love this combo.


Lets all take a trip. I know this may sound odd from me, But I took many trips around this part of the country in a 1965 Opel Station wagon. Yup. My father and I loved to explore. We would bring some hard boiled eggs, Hungarian Salami, and loaf of Rye bread and the mustard in a tube. mmm with a fresh fizzy Lemonade. This photo brings all those memories back The colors, and period correct details.

They got a wonderful Dodge and are having some fun!

    I LOVE the fact that they are still willing to be a little politically incorrect with a name like Gents Barn and the use of beautiful women tastefully modeling their product.

    A little off subject, but still one of my favorite headers.

      That day was one of the best experiences, that all came together at a car show, were the models loved our three classics so much they spent two hours with us in an impromptu photoshoot!
      Thanks go out toLarry Moore the photographer.

    Matt, an interesting tidbit…the runabout featured is amazingly like my Argentine boat that you so appreciate. The styling, hardware, and such of the construction detail as is evident, point right to it.
    The biggest visual difference is just in the fins… on. Maybe that is an import to Germany….while to be certain many Germans have Argentine connections. ??

    I just looked up Fritz Tar boats and they did make some without the fins. WOW, did we just figure out what your boat is?

    Since you are including young guns from around from around the world, shouldn’t Jeffery Breen be included from Canada?

    Hi everyone – greetings from good ol’ Germany! @Matt: THANKS once again, you’re the greatest, well Muhammad Ali was, but your close! Greatest in our boating community for sure! @John: Maybe you can send me an image of your boat and I can help you locate some facts, if you think there are some German ties to it? Happy to help! @Reddog: This image is taken from the BaT Auction of our Dodge, where we just recently bought it from. Who ever Jimmy is – give my kind regards and I think he did a GREAT smashing run with (what is now) our Miss Tessa. 🙂 @ Jeffrey: Dankeschoen! 🙂 We also started a brand called “Ladies Cottage” three years ago, still working on developing that one… 😉 Anyway – our brand name really works in Germany and Scandinavia, being our core markets, so we are happy. @ All of you: Whenever you plan to visit Europe, let us know – a cold German beer is waiting for you! 🙂

    I think we traced the origin of that Argentine boat to a boat company down there named Cannell and Perez…?

    Tidbit: we do know that the guy the bought the boat in Argentina and had it shipped to Va…saw the boat being used on an alpine lake down there to make a GERMAN BEER COMMERCIAL….with some ladies in the pix that Troy would post.

    LoL – John, love the idea with the German beer commercial…could help in the Corona crisis, too… And what a fine boat, this Argentinian…but by far larger than the typical East-German boat (13-14ft), nice idea though…have a good one everyone, having my last round of beer now and going to bed, close to midnight here!
