SK 1722 – Sascha Schwiertnia and a stroke of luck
Incredible – Sascha Schwiertnia finds his father's long lost SK 1722 and buys it back.
Sascha Schwiertnia's great fortune is thanks only to a moment of
chance. But let's first start at the beginning: At the end of 1989,
his father Peter Schwiertnia took on a brand new SK 1722/45 to drive.
“Whenever I had the time, I'd go with him on trips. At six I was
allowed to turn the steering wheel for the first time. You never
forget something like that,” he says, now 32 years old. In 1995 his
father was supposed to get another truck – he refused because he
wanted to continue driving the SK.
