There will also be plenty of highlights in the motorcycle category! Antique motorcycles over 100 years old, Steve McQueen's dirt bike, special vintage motorbikes from the Czech Republic, a Japanese motorcycle exhibition.

The diversity of the showcased vehicles is a characteristic feature of the Oldtimer Show. In addition to cars and motorcycles in the exhibition halls, there will also be special features: tractors, vintage bicycles, pedal cars, small trucks, etc.

Detailed technical data sheets will be placed in front of each vehicle, accompanied by stories. Larger vintage vehicles will be placed in the outdoor area: American luxury cars, trucks, buses.

The nostalgic feeling will be enhanced by the sight of the retro locomotive hall and the smell of oil on the floor. The atmosphere will be complemented by the music of bygone eras while strolling. Besides the wooden-wheeled cars, ladies dressed in period clothing will be available for photographs.

The vehicles exhibited in the locomotive hall will participate in an old-timer beauty contest. A total of 30 prizes will be awarded in various categories based on different eras and types of vehicles by the international jury.
