Remembering Heidi Hetzer, A Friend To The World

Heidi Hetzer passed away last weekend, and was mourned around the world. She was 81 years old when she died at her home in Berlin, but before she went she went around the world in her 1930 Hudson Great Eight. We were honored to get to know her over the course of filming her and her Hudson last year, and remain amazed at what she accomplished in her vibrant life. After retiring from the family business at 77 years old, she decided that the retirement of the armchair and knitting variety wasn’t for her. A longtime mechanic and car enthusiast, she decided to take her massive pre-war American car and drive it around the globe. Many people talk of this, few do it. Heidi was one of the few, and one that will be missed by a great many.

I was Heidi’s co-pilot starting from Daytona Beach to Daytona Racetrack, then to Cape Canaveral and ending at the airport in Orlando November, 2015. Julie Duncan, Victoria, BC

As much as I love the videos of screaming Ferrari V12’s and historic Porsches, Heidi’s is easily my favorite story. I re-watched the video today and it’s probably even more emotional to watch now than it was the first time almost a year ago. Thank you for capturing this amazing woman’s story, Petrolicious.

A life well lived with an emphasis on her true passions, what more can one ask for?
