The year 2020, which started as usual, didn’t seem to promise anything bad for fans of antique vehicles. Some of them started the New Year in their garages continuing the projects of antique cars, others by browsing the Internet, looking for new or fresh things for their collections. The pandemic and its consequences came up a little later, forcing not only changes in the planned activities but changes in the whole world.
The Klasika wall calendar, which appeared at the end of 2020, became not only a Christmas present for fans of antique vehicles, but also a beautiful tradition that crowns the annual activities of the Antique Automobile Club Klasika every year. It may be stated that this publication has long gone beyond car garages and may be found not only in the house of the average driver, but also in various institutions and companies.
On August 1st 2020, the Antique Car Show Timeless Classic 2020 in Biržai was marked by the first appearance of the legendary car Leningrad, which won the Grand Prix of the event and the award for the most beautiful car to its owner Alexander Obymacha. On August 22nd, this car and its owner triumphed at the antique car event Riga Retro 2020 winning the title of the most beautiful car.
On 31 July 2020, on the initiative of the Antique Automobile Club Klasika, there was established the Union of Lithuanian Historical Vehicle Associations (L.I.T.A.S.) and on 21 August, it was registered with the State Enterprise Centre of Registers.

On 1 July, the 2021 Klasika Club calendar photo contest, which had lasted for more than a month, ended. Every year, the Antique Automobile Club Klasika, in order to delight the antique lovers, releases a limited edition of wall calendars with images of historic motorcycles, cars, trucks and tractors. The following seven photographers took part in the 2021 Klasika calendar photo competition and submitted their photos: Eugenijus Ruseckis, Dominykas Liberis, Vigintas Petrušonis, Tomas Stepulis, Justinas Krisiūnas, Emanuelis Norbutas and Kęstutis Banevičius.
On 13 June (Saturday), the members of the Klasika Club together with their colleagues went on a two-day trip to Panemunė. Early in the morning, after the caravan of classic cars moved from Kaunas, the first destination of the trip – Jurbarkas Manor Park – appeared soon. An exhibition of vintage cars was planned here by prior agreement with the Jurbarkas Tourist Centre. After displaying the antique vehicles for the residents and guests, the Klasika Club members visited the museum of the sculptor Vincas Grybas.
On beautiful Saturday morning of 30 May, the members of the Antique Automobile Club Klasika started their second trip in their vintage cars. This time they chose Marijampolė and Vilkaviškis districts. In Kaunas, when several friends from the Antique Cars Association Old Buckets joined the Klasika’s company, a column of eleven vintage cars hit the road. After reaching Marijampolė, the antique cars first visited the so-called „Kubilkiemis“ museum. Mr Kęstutis Kubilius, the owner of this museum, welcomed the travellers at the door of the spacious building of the museum and showed its rich and interesting collections of vintage cars, motorcycles, trucks and other antiques.
The 2020 season of the Antique Automobile Club Klasika began on 23 May, when a group of club members invited their friends and colleagues and organized a tour of antique cars around Panemunė visiting its castles and picturesque surroundings. As many as 22 antique cars gathered there, uniting 59 fans and lovers of antique vehicles.
Every year, when closing the last pages of the calendar, we cast thoughts back along the ways we have traveled, identify obstacles that have been overcome and evaluate the past events. The early years of the Antique Automobile Club Klasika were not really rich in events. Of course, over the eleven years of its operation, the club has expanded, gained strength, developed its traditions and has earned not only respect but also authority. So, what was so special and significant in the year 2019, which started out in an unusual and rather interesting way for the members of Klasika?
