Techno Classica- Essen

Posted in Uncategorized at 5:08 am by Administrator

I was extremely excited during my 11 hour flight from LAX to arrive in Germany. This was going to be my first attendance at the largest classic car show held in Europe. I wanted to understand and get an appreciation for the value of the classic Mercedes-Benz in Europe. This show was a delightful treat. The show cars were impeccable and the hosts of the show put out the red carpet and treated their guest with the up most hospitality.

At first when you arrive at the Convention center, it seems like a small gathering, until the itinerary is reviewed and you realize that there are thirteen showrooms with thousands of show cars displayed. The food vendors were spectacular!! How much better can it get than sitting in the midst of the most popular and sought after cars while drinking your German beer and eating a sausage stew.

The first day, I was exhausted from the plane ride so I just walked around the showroom in a daze admiring the vehicles displayed. They had beautiful women dressed up in 50′s and 60′s costumes, a grand pianist, and violinist were walking amongst the cars. The scene was as though I had walked into the set of an old Hollywood movie.

Fantastic!!

The next day, I woke up early in the morning. I was refreshed from my long flight the previous day. I took as many pictures as time would allow. I have created a photo album on Vintage Euro Parts’ Facebook page.
