Andreas Winkler is an original screwdriver. When other workshops despair of classic car repairs, he is the salvation. Although the 54-year-old never learned to be a mechanic, his specialist knowledge and skills are in demand across national borders. What started with youthful enthusiasm for motor sports (he still drives autocross races today), picked up speed with repairing forklifts and agricultural machinery and finally culminated in his own workshop, to which his customers bring their Porsche, Rolls-Royce and Ferrari.

As a juror on the new YouTube format “eBay sucht den Superschrauber”, Winkler wants to show what he’s really capable of. AUTO BILD spoke to the self-made screwdriver!

“If my modern Sprinter breaks down, I’ll take it to Mercedes”

You can tell a good screwdriver by the fact that he can see in passing whether he needs a size 10 or size 13 open-end wrench, says Winkler. A (maximum) mediocre runs more often. It takes not only talent, but also perseverance. Because: Only someone who dares to try new things and grows with the challenges becomes an excellent mechanic. “It’s better to lie awake at night brooding over possible solutions than always staying at the same level” – this also includes not being afraid of repairing higher-priced cars.
