    bremen made my Sebring but I have had very little luck finding out anything about the company. I’ve seen some old literature on ebay for the mini-mark and I have a brochure for the Sebring.

    I have a Mini built by Bremen Motors in Bremen Indiana…had it checked for actual year (1971 VW). I also have a German mechanic that has been the only one to touch it. He specializes in VWs, just retired, and has a garage full of parts. You name it he has it. My car has 13K miles on the engine put in by Bremen Motors. It was originally inspected as a 1981 (remanufacture date) but after I had it inspected I just have to meet 71 emissions standards. It is tan with removable hard top. I’ve been thinking of selling it and I have all the original ads (with pricing) and diagrams. How would I find out what it is worth?

    I have one too! I am excited about adding this car to my vasr collection of kit cars. I brought mine about ayear ago,it only shows 1300 miles on the odometer. The car sat for a very long time so the carb needed to be rebuilt and I had to seal the gas tank.. other than that I have really enjoyed driving this treasure. I too am looking for an assembly manual for this car. Will post pic as soon as I get to my home computer..

    My father, DeWayne Creighton co-owned Bremen Sport Equipment with Omar Hochstetler. The company was originally called Bremen Speed Equipment. Bremen Sport sold the Maxi Taxi (trademarked), Mini Mark (trademarked), Creighton (trademarked) and Sebring (trademarked). Mr. Hochstetler sold his interest in the company to Alvin Hildenbrand in the late 70’s to early 80’s. Feel free to comment if you have any questions that I might be of help.
