Now in its 23rd year the Techno Classica in Essen is 20 halls full to bursting with Vintage and Classic vehicles of all genres; motor sport through to prestige as well as motorbikes and spare parts galore! If its accessories, memorabilia, art work or just a passion for by-gone automobiles for you this should definitely be on your calendar for next year.
VW Classic Parts had an impressive stand, complete with a number of rather special soft tops borrowed from the Wolfsburg museum. The Type 34 carbiolet was only ever made as a prototype, so for aircooled enthusiasts this is somewhat of a grail. For those more in tune with the Watercooled scene, its a game of spot the difference with the Golf Cabriolet prototype, based on a 1976 car – three years before the first Karmann version rolled off the production line.
Please click on the images above, most were taken by the VW Classic Parts team, the picture of the Type 34 Ghia was taken by JagDavey on Flickr, please click to see the rest of his pictures from the show.
See you soon
