H Today you will get an H mark, which was 30 years ago the stars of the IAA, which was under the motto 'The car - the engine of our time'. The ADAC (General German Automobile Club), in cooperation with the VDA (Association of the Automobile Industry) and the ZDK (Central Association of German Automotive Industry), as part of the Working Group on Historic Vehicles, is showing a special classic car show at which 17 cars can be seen. The focus is on the fair stars of 1983.

New vehicles at the time, now H license plates

In Hall 3.1, Stand D50, the VW Golf II, which was sold 30 years ago at the IAA celebrated its world premiere as well as an Audi Sport Quattro, a Renault Fuego Turbo, a Bertone Ritmo S85 Cabrio and a Ford Sierra XR4i.

The early examples from the first year of manufacture have already reached the H license plate age, but many of them were in the Everyday life consumed and have long blessed the temporal. One reason for this is their modern appearance; they are not yet perceived as classics.

The age between 15 and 30 is particularly dangerous for the upcoming classics. It is up to the owners to decide whether the car has to give way to a newer model or whether it can mature with dignity. Looks at a Renault Fuego or Golf II the situation today is significantly different than it was 15 years ago. At that time nobody wanted him - the supply of spare parts was difficult, the cars were hardly worth anything.

The special show aims to point out this dilemma. The bread and butter cars of yore have become vehicles that are worth preserving and should be guarded as cultural assets. The Historical Vehicles Working Group invites you to a dialogue on the 1,000 square meter stand.
