Classic Lounge


Once again we had the pleasure to represent our workshop at the American Revolution US-Car & Bike Meeting. From August 3 to August 5 we were in Günthersdorf with a large Classic Lounge stand and several original classic cars.

The meet up from and for friends of US brands near Leipzig took place during what sure felt like the three hottest days of the year. We defied the heat with ice cold drinks, interesting talks about old iron, powerful engines and the passion for historical US brands.

On board was a sporty Ford Mustang 428 CobraJet Fastback (1968) whose sonorous sound ensured enthusiasm. A Corvette C1 in a bright turquoise (1960), a rare sports car out of the house of Chevrolet, was a real highlight for spectators as well. People interested in engines had the possibility to marvel at at the GM 454 Big Block 4 Bolt of the Chevrolet El Camino (1971). Since we’re currently fixing a little mishap with an allen screw and had to remove the power engine, with 496 ci and unbelievable 645 PS, our guests had the possibility to catch a glimpse of the heart of the “El Diabolo”.

The parking lot of the Nova Eventis Mall before the gates of Leipzig was already bustling with people when we arrived. The first US-American gems caught the eye of people and made themselves heard with roaring engine noises.

In setting up the stand, we were supported by the competent team of the Music and More Group from Markkleeberg, who lent us the traverses and built them up at lightning speed. Our new „Hütchen“ assured us a shady place. The roofs made out of truck tarpaulin were made by Jens and his team from Planen-Pfefferkorn from Knauthain.

A lot of thanks to both teams for the professional collaboration.

In spite of the glaring sun and melting temperatures, numerous fans of the foreign cars showed up with and without their own vehicles. On the camping site one could be impressed by some nice design classics amongst mobile homes, which are a perfect example of the attention to the detail of the past decades.

The squad of American vintage cars and modern classic cars was exciting and remarkably extensive. From the classic pony car, roaring hot rods, to newer models of Boss Hoss motorbikes, there were plenty to admire.

If you still wanted to, you could end the evenings with genuine Rock’n Roll music, cocktails and more tolerable temperatures.

We have captured some impressions of our stand for you. Impressive pictures of the event can be found on the website of the organizer PowerMotorEvents.

We’re thanking PowerMotorEvents and all assistants for the organization and realization of a successful weekend. And of course a thousand thanks to the numerous automotive enthusiasts who made this event possible! You are great!
