Subscriptions & booklets

F ast 40,000 people interested in scrap metal went to Friedrichshafen. However, many visitors left their vintage cars behind and drove in modern cars. The strength of the Friedrichshafen trade fair was once again a pleasantly familiar atmosphere without too much professional pressure. This is not about ticking off and having seen everything, but about lingering, trying out, trying out, buying and engaging in conversations with like-minded people. But the dealers and suppliers were also satisfied. Something really worked because the offers were attractive and the prices were moderate.

Many Swiss classic car fans

Modern, light-flooded exhibition halls, a good and balanced mix of classic and classic cars and of Dealers and private sellers as well as a diverse range are the strengths of the Bodensee-Messe, which took place for the twelfth time in 2019. A particularly large number of Swiss classic car fans came as visitors. Apparently they were the least likely to shy away from driving their classics to Friedrichshafen in the popular constant rain. You could see it on the many Swiss license plates in the open-air atrium of the fair. Not only dealers and private sellers cavorted there, the owners of real vintage cars from before 1990 also had free access and parking permits. In the large open-air area around the exhibition halls there was a straw bale course - a kind of racing oval on which sports cars and historic tractors were allowed to let off steam. The real fighters behind the steering wheels were not afraid of the rain.

38,100 visitors over three days

Many saw the weather as a real challenge for a defiantly affirmative 'Now more than ever!' Statistics are impressive: 800 exhibitors presented themselves in twelve exhibition halls on 85,000 square meters of exhibition space. 38,100 visitors came over three days, making Motorworld Classics Bodensee one of the largest classic car shows in Germany. The central theme in the foyer this year were British classics with many exotic cars such as an Austin-Healey Tickford, a Bedford Dormobile, a Bristol 412 and a Marcos GT with the three-liter engine from the Volvo 164.

Friedrichshafen remains As the cradle of Dornier, MTU, Maybach and ZF, it is also true to its tradition as a universal engine for land, air and water vehicles. Airplanes, boats and Hans Trippel's amphicars were also among the exhibits of the Zeppelin City.
