    ***Mühldorfer Classic Car Show (Part 1)*** (56K Warning)

    There was a car show in Mühldorf last Sunday. I took over 650 pictures and I will post them in batches of around 40 pictures per thread. I'll post Part I today and Part II tomorrow since I've had a long hard day in Munich and need to take a break. Enjoy the pics.



    Classic BMW 1602's or 2002's. I always confuse these...


    An Opel Kapitän, from the days when Opel's were still considered premium.


    Classic Volvo 140 or 240 series and a lovely Opel Manta A.


    Fiat Topolino C with 16-horsepower. My father had an NSU-Fiat Topolino A with 13-horsepower as his first car. Guess what? My father's Fiat Topolino was at this same show!!! Pictures of that car in Part 3...


    Chevrolet Pickup Truck


    All I saw was the Plymouth writing upfront. The rear or sides had no identification whatsoever. What Plymouth is this?


    Chrysler 300. Not sure if it's an A, B, C, D, E etc.


    Opel Rekord


    Two of my favorite Mercedes cars next to each other! An S123 estate and a W116 450SE S-Class! Love the W116 S-Class!









    BMW 700. 700cc 2-cylinder engine with around 45-horsepower. After my father sold his Fiat Topolino, he bought a used BMW 700 but had the engine tuned to about 55-60-horsepower. Sadly this careless tuning affected the reliability of the engine and the car broke down at least once a week! LOL



    1966 Pontiac Parisienne. Beautiful. My mother's father worked for GM and he had a 1967 Parisienne in white.







    Pontiac Parisienne and a VW Thing next to it.


    Dodge Charger. I am guessing this is an early 1960s version, right?


    Chevrolet Bel Air


    Iso Rivolta, a car from Italy. Not sure what this one was called though. All I know is that it's an Iso Rivolta.



    Ford Thunderbird







    Anyone know the car on the right???



    This is a pre-World War II Mercedes-Benz. My best guess is that this is a variant of the W136 170V models.






    Classic Renault T4. She may be ugly, but she's a legend.



    Opel Olympia, I would guess...



    Audi 100S Coupe and Opel Commodore. Love the Audi, beautiful.







    Mercedes-Benz W115 220D with 60-horsepower as used by the Bavarian government.





    Mercedes W113 Pagoda SL with a Lloyd next to it. Lloyd was a German carmaker that made light and cheap cars out of a type of plastic or hardened leather after World War II.





    Mercedes-Benz R107 SL and Porsche 911




    Opel Manta B



    Opel GT and a Mercedes 280SE Coupe.









    Citroen 2CV and other historical cars.



    Another Iso Rivolta. I found two Iso Rivolta's at the show. Very rare cars. Surprised even two showed up here!





    END OF PART I

    Those Opel Manta coupes (like the red one in the third picture) still look great today. Such clean lines...

    So funny to see a '79 Chevy pickup in Germany.

    My favorite gen 911! Beautiful.

    You guys seem to have quite a mix of european and american cars at that show. I wish car shows here had more european cars.

    Great pictures, thanks for sharing.
    There's no apology for stupid, boy!

    Opels from the 1970s and early 1980s were quite good-looking. It was in the mid to late 1980s when their styling took a big hit and they produced cars that looked more boring than Toyota's!

    Thankfully their styling has come back strongly. Thanks for the Chevy info. 1979...

    Thanks and anytime.

    Car shows here tend to have a mix of German, French, Italian, British and American. Sometimes you'll find some old Swedish cars like an older Volvo or Saab. Japanese classics are quite rare for some reason.

    EXCELLENT pics as well!!!!!!! I wish if I ever get to Europe again, to attend one of those neat car shows!
    Double thanks!

    In my region of Germany we have a lot of car shows. The next show is in Salzburg, Austria, 1 hour away from where I live. I hope I can make it though.

    Thats because there is no such thing as a Japanese classic.
    The last time I was in Germany the strangest cars I saw was an early 90s Buick Park Avenue traveling down the Autobahn and an early 70s Cadillac (the model name escapes me). I would have never thought that the europeans had such an affinity for classic American cars. They always seem out of place on the roads in Europe.

    LOL

    This show had a 1970s Toyota Celica and Landcruiser and a 1970s or 1980s Honda Prelude and Civic (pictures coming up, patience) but that's it. I guess not many people considered Japanese cars as having potential for classic status in Europe.
