Maximilian Meinel Review: US Car-Meeting at Museum of Technology, Sinsheim, 07.08.2016

Who am I? I’m Maximilian Meinel and I’m a freelance photographer from Germany and I’m also fascinated by beautiful and unique vehicles. Here’s my second review of car-event: US Car-Meeting 2016 – Sinsheim, Germany.


Around 500 vehicles has been presented by their owners on Sunday 07.08. at the area on one of the most famous technical museums in Germany. The weather also has been excellent – sunny and hot like those cars. The meeting started at 9am and lasted until 6pm.

Mostly You could see classic cars. Those which are definitly more pupular, but You could also see modern US-Cars at this event.

_MAX9156 _MAX9176 _MAX9216

Organizers prepared some attractions, for example live-band played covered songs for a great mood.


But the best music in my ears on this day have been the sounds of Muscle-Cars, loud exhausts and squealing tires.

_MAX9222 _MAX9249 _MAX9277 _MAX9308

I guess one of the most rarely cars has been a DMC DeLorean, decorated with some beautiful details like the Hover Board and the Fluxcompensator.

_MAX9346 _MAX9401 _MAX9432 _MAX9453

Some contributors made a lot of action on the ground… ….have look at the Harley-Burnout.

_MAX9463 _MAX9479

Owners of cars have had a log trip. They came from Netherlands, France, Switzerland…

The date for the next US-Car-Meeting at Sinsheim is already fixed: 5th until 6th August 2017.

Movie of Classic Days from 2015 year:

Oldtimersdag Appelscha in Hildenberg, Netherlands

Today we want to show You an event, which will take place on Saturday, September 17th, 2016. Organizers say: “The best day of the year”, is it true? This will be the 10th Oldtimerdag Appelscha!


Put your hand on a hot stove, a minute seems like an hour. Be with that special woman and an hour seems like a minute. That’s relativity as telling the German-born scientist and creator of the theory of relativity Einstein once. Which he wants to say that time flies when you’re having fun.

That time flies is clear, because it is already time for the Oldtimerdag Appelscha. A hint of this bygone time can be sampled on Saturday, September 17th, 2016 in Appelscha, because there will be again for the tenth time, from 9:00 to 18:00 pm, organized Oldtimerdag.

During this day will, often after years of restoration, several old trucks, buses, bicycles, tractors, motorcycles, cars, Solex, army vehicles, caravans, motorhomes, motorcycles and stationary engines from model year 1900 to 1988, again be admired in its full glory his. Some with full charge, others with directors at that time, dress appropriately. Others with owners who, on the basis of photographs, fun stories to tell about their vehicle.

OM Review: ‘Mini out in the open’ by Norwegian Mini Cooper Club

We continue our serie with events. This time we present to you a little review of the event from Norwegian Mini Cooper Club.

Norsk Mini Cooper

On Saturday 28th May, Norwegian Mini Cooper Club arranged its annual ‘Mini out in the open’ event. We gathered at a local gas station and waited for everyone to arrive. Maps were handed out to every car and with only a very few raindrops chasing us – we started our journey from Oslo towards Drøbak and Son. Mini after Mini, we drove on small, curvey roads and had a blast arriving Drøbak centre. There was a marked and a lot of people outside. We drove a few rounds and made a show!

Norsk Mini Cooper 3 Norsk Mini Cooper 6
After parking by the harbor, we had a small pit-stop and refueled with hot dogs and ice cream. Perfect for a late May afternoon.

Norsk Mini Cooper 2 Norsk Mini Cooper 4 Norsk Mini Cooper 5

We were eager to drive a little more, so we hit the small, curvey roads again and arrived to a small city called Son. Here we stopped to visit the retired couple, Gro and Knut Hallan at their charming old-school shop or museum by the name ‘Hallanderiet’. Knut had lovely old timers outside his shop and was eager to tell us the stories behind every car and item in his collection. See their website here: Hallanderiet Website
