Christmas holidays and their expectations are related to one or another tradition. Christmas trees are decorated, greetings are sent, gifts are given, and other pleasant festive occasions are done.
As usual, from time immemorial, holidays and other important information are reminded to us by calendar numbers: over time, changing its form, and now maybe slightly less visible, but quickly found on your phone, computer or other household appliance. It’s a pity that we are decreasingly faced with the traditional form of calendar.

Although this summer is rich in antique technique events, serious and worthy attention is not so much. Besides the traditional meetings in Pasvalys, Biržai, Riga and Jurmala, there has been a rare event which attracts the attention of genuine retro technique collectors and experts. One of them is the opening of the antique moto technique exposition in Latvia, on June 9th. Perhaps this event would not be so special, if not Alfreds Zamockis, the owner of this collection, who could well be called the symbol of the antique Latvian moto technique because of his activity and eccentricity.

The more and more often we notice that in the mad day race we usually do not go along with our work and worries. Time catches and overtakes us… Maybe only when the New Year changes for the year, we stop, take a moment and look back calmly. Such a step, which has already become the tradition of the Antique Vehicle Club “Klasika”, has been repeated for almost a decade. Although, in truth, we will celebrate the tenth anniversary of the club only in the coming

In Latvia, like in Lithuania, two interesting events of antique technique take place. If our antique vehicle meeting “Timeless Classic” matches the solidity of “Riga Retro”, then the “Retro Jurmala” event in its free spirit – with Pasvalys “We drive”. Maybe we should not compare Pasvalys with Jurmala, but both events are definitely somehow similar.

Or maybe because of the fact that it is always interesting to go there and participate in…
