Looking through calendar pages of the Antique Vehicles Club “Klasika” events 2014, firstly, interesting, rich with events summer appears in front of our eyes. But no. It must be said, that in 2014, old technical season started very early, even not waiting for spring. So, even when chill was still pinching, “Klasika” members gathered to the farmstead of hospitable club member Gediminas Aleksandravičius. At the meeting, there were discussed and evaluated club activities in 2013, which was generous really fun moments for club members. And the memorializing documentary movie “Antique Car show in Biržai 2013” recalled what we can enjoy it and what mistakes should be avoided. Sharing experiences, guests and members of the club waited for a surprise – the magazine

This summer has never been so numerous with antique vehicles shows and events. And in the midst of the season appeared Antique Vehicle Club “Klasika” magazine was not the biggest news. Maybe just a little later, in the dust of summer impressions, after a little break, having this colourful magazine in the hand, the question arose – what is it?
This question, we hope, will be answered by the initiator and editor of the magazine whose word is printed at the beginning of the edition. We regret that we cannot physically give, or otherwise share with everyone this magazine. Nowadays, the press publishing – an expensive pleasure, so this magazine was published in a small edition.
“Klasika” gunpowder – still does not get wet! And it proves Club “Klasika” participation in a retro motorcycle festival “Bike X Dream”. For some time now our club is known as one of the best and most interesting antique car clubs in Lithuania. And it is true, because by this time the club’s activities consisted only of all it has to do with motoring history and historic car event promotion. One can say that the motorcycle was undeservedly forgotten. Quite unexpectedly, a group of club members had the idea to expand our activities and interests of the club and participate in a retro motorcycle festival “Bike X Dream”. What is more, looking around our club members garages, we found such exhibits, which had not been seen before this time of the society spoiled by antique technique events. Moreover, this motorcycle festival was held here – in Biržai.
It’s hard to have something new to say about the historical car exhibition which takes place in Biržai. Every year, together with the town festivals held, the antique vehicle performances have become a traditional gathering place for people who are at least interested in historical technique, where you can see the oldest and most interesting historical exhibits, hear the restoration news, and finally, spend great time in friends and like-minded company.
On the 2nd of August, in Biržai, there was held a traditional exhibition of antique vehicles “Timeless “Klasika” 2014” which brought together the best, rarest and oldest cars
On March 27th, the Antique Vehicle Club “Klasika” attended Nicodemus Statue Awards in Rokiskis. On the World Theatre Day, the most outstanding events and people in Rokiskis’s cultural, sport, political and city’s daily life received nominations and awards. All nominees were driven in Antique Vehicle Club “Klasika” cars.
On 25th of February, in Noriūnai Jonas Černius main school (Kupiškis district), there was organised a meeting with the members of Antique Vehicles Club “Klasika”. Club founder Egidijus Einoris introduced the members of the club, told the club’s foundation history, presented the activities and showed a documentary movie about last year’s antique vehicles exhibition in Biržai. About 100 members of the school community participated in the meeting with the members of the club. Children were so engaged in listening to the story and watching a movie that you could hear the flies fly. Teachers were fascinated by the students getting so interested. They usually does not focus attention on something for more than 15 minutes, because they want to be very proactive … The participating students ranged in age from 8 to 18 years.
After the film watching, the collection of old gramophones, record-players and music boxes was introduced to the students’ attention. Club “Klasika” member Klementas Sakalauskas demonstrated the exhibits of his own museum – the audio playback devices from the past. K. Sakalauskas presented his museum which is founded in Piniava, Panevežys district. Mr.Klementas played the brought instruments, demonstrated the antique “CDs” – plates and vynil records, told their story and invited to visit the museum. Businessman Gediminas Aleksandravičius arrived to the meeting by an antique car – Studebaker Commander, made in 1955. Students looked around it and asked a businessman a lot of questions related to antique vehicles. It can be said that thanks to the club “Klasika”, the school community deepened historical and ethnographic knowledge. School community was fascinated by the activities of the club and are looking forward to new meetings. We recommend other schools to communicate and co-operate with the Antique Vehicles Club “Klasika”. Thank you!
