„Mes važiuojame 2012!“ („We Drive 2012!“) – In Pasvalys

Category:Events,Events 2012,Articles

Often, when seeing an antique car passing by, we stop and turn back to look at it. Some of us marvel at it, some go back into remembrances of the past, others just are pleased to see it. However, it is rarely that people know how much patience and effort, not even speaking about time and money, it is required so that those old and rusty antique cars could be brought back to life. Not everyone understands that some people can talk longest hours sharing their impressions from past shows, parades and antique car festivals. You might think of such people as „fanatics“. Perhaps they are. However, antique cars, especially antique vehicle parades bring joy to everyone.

Category:About,Library,Press about us,Articles Tags : 

When searching various antique car club websites or the Internet, I noticed that information pertaining to the very beginnings and the founding of such clubs is missing. Where and when were they founded? What circumstances determined the founding of these clubs in Lithuania? In this article, I will try to fill in the gaps and tell the story of the founding of antique car club „Klasika“ in the city of Biržai. I will tell who the godfather of the club was, and how the name of the club was selected.

Seeing off the Old Year… Happy New Year!

Category:Events,Events 2011,Articles

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

Category:Events 2011,Library,Articles

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”.

Labakie brauc!

Category:Events 2011,Articles

„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.
