The Standard name is almost lost on the European Mainland, but one couple trying to rectify the situation are Dirk and Diana Cornelius who tour Europe in their Postwar 8 Saloon. Here are two of their encounters. Keep up the good work please!
Last week we went to the DAVC (Biggest oldtimerclub in Germany) "Deutschlandtreffen" in Nürnberg (Bavaria) It was a lovely 4 day rally! Two things we had to explain over and over again to clubfriends as well as to the visiting public (Saturday on the Nürnberg main marketplace.....lots of tourists!) What's a "Standard"? and what stands "VL" for on your licenseplate? We enjoyed explaining both a few hunderd times!
Two weeks earlier we visited the "Vogtland Fahrzeugfestival" in Saxonia (former DDR). Same story....nobody ever heard about a marque Standard...so we explained.
See you all in a few weeks at the national,
Diana & Dirk.........and Fritz
The Standard comes under scrutiny in the former Eastern Germany, where Trabants are still the more popular choice, see them in the background?
