I met Hans Tanner around 1970-'72 when he was an editor at Petersen publishing doing gun books and one spectacular two edition magazine called Sports Car World. (Anyway, I wonder if he was really a race car manager or a sort of hanger on when he was in Europe in the Fifties who would find one wealthy client after another (like Temple Buell) and help them get cars? Was he part owner of Scuderia Centro Sud? I also remember hearing about him buying and selling cars throughout Europe. I realize he died tragically (suicide) so , in asking this question about who he was, please understand I am not trying to knock someone who was part of the Ferrari community (author of several books for Clymer on Ferrari) , just wondering if, looking back through the telescope of time, is he now thought of as a significant figure in the sports car world of the '50s and '60s or a bit player? I wonder this about lots of names I read, my favorite name so far being "Filmer Paradise" who was the Ford official in Germany that reportedly brought Ferrari and Ford together when Ford was thinking of buying Ferrari. I love the name and don't know if Mr. Paradise ever did anything significant in the car world other than that one introduction.
