 Standard 8 at German Events



Spreading the Standard Gospel in Germany



Diana and Fritz the Dog with the Standard 8 in Bavaria


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!


 

  Dear Standardfriends,

 

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,

 

Friendly regards,

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?
