Seeing off the Old Year… Happy New Year!

The Antique Vehicle Club “Klasika” began its season on May 28, 2011. The Club accepted an invitation to take part in a land-rover marathon “4×4 Perimeter” festival which took place in Pačeriaukštė Village (Biržai District). Members of the Club exhibited their vehicles in the sports field of P. Poškus High School. Historic vehicles were admired by a large number of spectators and marathon participants.

Our Club’s next events were shows in Širvintos and Kernavė. Last year, our friends in Širvintos offered us to arrange an exhibit in Kernavė. After a short deliberation, we accepted the invitation. We called our event “With ,Klasika’ – to Kernavė!“

A Partnership and Sponsoring Agreement Signed

It’s been four years since the antique car club “Klasika” has existed, all thanks to its good-willed sponsors. The club’s events and actions are planned and evaluated keeping the funders’ support and generosity in mind. It’s nice that the sponsors’ help is expanding as well as their quantity. This means that the antique car shows in Lithuania will be even grander and more beautiful, that more than one historically valuable object will have a new life. It’s wonderful that the club “Klasika” is recognized beyond Lithuania. It was pleasant to receive an unexpected and heartfelt partnership offer that came all the way from across the Atlantic.

,,Grand Dukes”

On October 22nd, the “Grand Dukes Restaurant and Deli” president Andrius Bučas and the Antique Car Club “Klasika” director Egidijus Einoris heartily shook hands, having made the deal of partnership and the sponsoring of “Klasika”.

A Saturday in Kirkilai with “Klasika” and Biržai Theatre

Saturday, July 23rd was not a typical day in the calendar of the antique automobile club “Klasika”. After we visited several more remote towns, it dawned on us, that next to the town of Biržai, there was this “grand” village of Kirkilai. And it’s not some average village too. It even has its own coat of arms that was officially approved by the President of Lithuania.

The members of “Klasika” club came together, drove for a little while on the streets of Biržai demonstrating antique cars in the Janonis Square, and then turned towards the Kirkilai Village. The dirt road took them past several lakes and everyone was able to enjoy the views that are characteristic to Biržai Region only. Club members walked on a wooden bridge leading to an isle in one of the lakes, admired some cat’s-tails, and picked some raspberries.

The Flag of Birzai was fluttering in Kernave

During July 8-10 in Kernave, the ancient capital of Lithuania, the 13th festival of “Days of Live Archaeology” took place. As part of this festival on July 9, there was an antique vehicles exhibition, which was organized by the antique vehicles club “Klasika” together with Sirvintai classic vehicles admirers and friends from all areas of Lithuania and Latvia.

First, residents of Birzai and their friends cheered people of Sirvintos. From an early morning on July 9th, an antique vehicles exhibition, a march through the streets of Sirvintos, and, finally, a trip through Musninkai towards Kernave took place.

In Sirvintos, a crowd of people gathered to see vehicles of an early and middle 20th century. Many wanted to see Antanas Nedzinskas’s, who is a member of Lithuanian Parliament, well-known bus, which he parks next to luxurious Parliament members’ cars. In addition, together with members of ,,Klasika”, appeared Virginijus Martisauskas – “Krasto naujienos” editor-in-chief, also known from TV shows about road traffic.

The trip with “Klasika” to Lithuania’s first capital Kernave starts earlier than the trip itself.

The winner would recieve an untraditional prize – travel with “Klasika” to Kernave to the traditional live archeology days, where “Klasika” of Birzai will be organizing a classic automobile parade in Sirvintai and Kernave. .

The antique cars club “Klasika” officially opened its exhibition season

On May 28, the antique cars club “Klasika” officially opened its exhibition season. The club accepted an invitation from the “4×4 perimeter” cross-country off-road vehicles marathon to come to the festival in Paceriaukste (district of Birzai).
At 15:00, Klasika’s members gathered in their antique cars near city’s municipality. Half an hour later, 17 antique cars and 7 motorcycles, led by a soviet-times GAI police equipage, drove out to the main street and headed towards Paceriaukste. The viewers were dressed in their nicest clothes and met us in ovations at P. Poskus School’s playfield. While driving in a circle of honor, commentator E. Malinauskas introduced all exhibits and equipages. He stated that antique vehicles remind us of historical events and decorate our modern lives. And the 21st Volga – a prestigious XX century antique vehicle!

Labakie brauc!

„Labakie brauc! The best are driving!“ – with this slogan we were greeted at our first event this year in Latvia, where Klasika‘s antique cars were shown. On a Saturday morning, May 14th, in a five-car column we traveled towards the border of Latvia and went straight to Salaspilis, where we were warmly welcomed. Although we came earlier than planned, the time passed very quickly: an orchestra was playing, „Old Cars Club“ treated us with coffee and snacks. Even the very first awards took place during the exhibition. Later, just like during a rally, we moved towards Bauske in the interval of a minute. We also received an interesting mission – during our trip we calculated street signs and orientated on the road. Half way to the destination, participants had a task to drive on a ramp in a VAZ 2102. We did pitty the Lada, which was driven by everyone and suffered a lot, however the task itself was a great challenge even for the most experienced drivers.
