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.
These are the cars that make passers-by turn and smile! These beauties decorate and nourish our daily lives! Every motor vehicle museum want to have these exhibits… On the 4th of August, in the traditional antique vehicle meeting “Timeless Classic 2018”, citizens and city guests could admire 123 historic exhibits from seven countries.

Our celebration passed and memories were left … Still, it is necessary to stand out and look forward to the next meeting. So, let’s remember the past moments and look again at the “Timeless Classics 2018” through the photo lens of our photographer Ilona Daubaraite. The first part is
On Saturday, May 5th, everyone somewhat understandable or faithful to the wheeled antique technique, rushed to Pasvalys. This year, for the tenth time in Pasvalys the event, which is popularly called the opening of the Lithuanian antique technique season, has gathered a huge crowd of wheeled exhibits and thousands of spectators.
Spring is just about to come: the first spring flowers have blossomed out, the greenness of the trees and meadows is becoming more and more vivid every day. The weather does not always appeal to the heat-hungry, and the last Saturday in April was quite cloudy and windy. But for the people who are determined and have a goal, the weather is not an obstacle. On April 28th, the Club “Klasika” members with families and friends gathered at Sodeliškis Manor, where the opening of the new club season took place.
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. Maybe it’s playful on the Soviet theme; maybe both of them look forgiving at the vehicle age and the rules of participation. Or maybe because of the fact that it is always interesting to go there and participate in…

On 6 May, the festival of antique auto-motor technique “We drive 2017” was held in Pasvalys as usually. This year’s meeting was outstanding with not only the perfect weather, but also the number of participants. And there is nothing surprising, because this traditional festival is also popularly known as Lithuanian antique technical season opening.

As every year, the festival began with registration of the antique vehicle participants. For the first time in the
