About the team

Friedel Kück

CEO & Owner of SL-Classics

"Cars and the sound of engines have always fascinated me. I have been restoring and working on different types of cars since I was a teenager. Spending time with my father working in his private small garage is one of my most valuable memories of my childhood. Back then as a kid I was learning by watching my father repairing customers" cars even if it meant for me just handing him the tools. When I was 16 years old I bought with my savings my first projects - a NSU Super Max and a Karmann Ghia Coupe and started to restore them. My passion has always been a Mercedes 190SL. But for a teenager it was more like a dream car which was unreachable. Today, after decades long continously pursuing my dream, i am proud to call myself a lucky man who lives his dream and turned his passion into his profession."


Master of the engines, transmissions & Co.

Ronny has more than 30 years experience in working on engines, transmissions and everything relating to mechanics. There is almost nothing he does not know about engines. He feels the most comfortable and at home when he is surrounded by cars and engines. As you can see in the true sense of the word.

Marco C.

Master of perfection - living up to the maxim "the best or nothing"

The passion for engines and mechanics probably runs in the family. Working side by side with his father Ronny building the perfect team to master the engines and mechanics in every condition! Restoring and working on engines are for him rather designation than just a profession. His philosophy of life is quality, quality! Rather do it once perfectly than ten times over and over again. Every project is a new challenge and he loves challenges. The goal is reached when the customer is happy and satisfied with his restored vehicle.


The professor - There is no such thing as impossible!

He is the "MacGyver" in our team. Sometimes we encounter difficulties to locate rare and no longer available parts. There is no other choice for us than to restore the orignal part and make it work again. Then he is our man for the impossible thing. He works and researches relentlessly until a satisfactory solution is found. Giving up is not an option and nothing is impossible!


Perfectionist for details! Saddler's work was yesterday...

He is our man with the delicate hands and is in charge for the interior of the vehicles. "Dressing up" the vehicles with high quality soft leather and shiny chrome parts is his world. He gives every vehicle the unique and perfect classy look at the end of the restoration.


Our man for the rough & tough work - we need that, too!

Before our classic vehicles are ready to shine there is a lot of work ahead of us. Some of the vehicles spent decades in a storage and have not been touched or driven in that time. Once the hand-picked classic car for restoration arrives our workshop Rokan disassembles it and prepares the body for the next restoration procedure. No metal sheet is impossible for him to tame!
