On April 18 2006, I received this nice e-mail from Stuart Mentply,
a German journalist, photographer, and classic VW aficionado: (unedited)
great page about the SP2.
I was friends with late Rudolf Leiding and he often told the Story, how he worked
on the design and the idea of the SP2.
He once flew in a SP2 to Germany for his wife Helga.
In his house he had a big model of that car.
As a Photographer I often took pictures of Rudolf Leiding.
The last photos of him were taken by his house with my old VW Beetle.
If you like you may use that photo for your page. You can use it for free of
Anyway, all the best from Germany and I am looking forward hearing from you.
A couple of days later, as promised, Stuart sent me two pictures of Rudolf Leiding: one
next to his classic VW Beetle and another holding the SP2 model.
Thank you very much for your contribution and for taking the time to write to me.
