Carl H. Linder

Cincinnati, Ohio

American Financial, Chairman of the Board.

Owns 3 Stutzes

In a press-release from about 1976, Stutz made the above statement.

Mr. Lindner and his Bearcat

Mr. Carl H. Linder, standing next to his wonderful Stutz Bearcat.

Mr. Linder, born in 1920, is Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of
Chiquita Brands International, Inc.

I think this is the explanation for his banana-yellow Bearcat.
(See the plate!)

photos by Bob Craig

This car was produced in 1979,
so I think Mr. Linder owned at least four Stutzes.


In 2001 the car was shown again at the concours.
Bob Craig was so kind to take some detail-photos.

These pictures were taken by Bob Craig at the Ohio Concours D'Elegance.

The following photos come from Larry Zimmer:

Wonder-Years picture

In May 2004, a friend told me about the homepage of Wonder-Years,
there, he found a picture of this yellow Bearcat.

Bearcat, preowned by Dean Martin

Larry Zimmer was so kind to send me these pictures, telling me,
that Wonder Years had to rebuild the very rusty car.
Well, all pictures show that they did a superb job!
