I didn't really had to go to Canadian Tire today but as i was waiting for the green light nearby, i spotted this van . The more i looked at it the more it looked out of place. I thought it was Renault Master ( note to european members, before having a good :lol: at me remember i never saw any of those before :wink: ) but it is a 2001-2002 Renault Trafic

And last week an old German: Auto Union 1000 Sp Roadster

It's kind of cool that there are people still collecting these. I though Germany tried to force everyone to get rid of their old cars.

Yes, our government always wants to push the people to buy new cars.
But the Abwrackprämie scrappage sheme was 10 years ago - and although a few classic cars were crushed back then, it was only a few and none such old and valuable classics as a DKW 1000 SP.
As the scrappage sheme money were 2500 €, it were more cars with that value, so some Opel Kadett B or so as 70ies or even 60ies cars.

And Germany wasn't the only country with such scrappage shemes. IIRC such was made also in Norway, Sweden, Greece and France, probably somewhere else, too.

But of course, there are politicians, who hates classic cars (and cars at all) and want to forbid them somehow.
The lobbyists of the German classic car scenes (I'm a bit involved) had heard in ministeries in Berlin and elsewhere:
"Be happy, that we don't have the power now. If we will be elected, you with your stinking cars will be our first victims."

So we classic car freaks have to be watchful!

And not only in Germany. Of course there are haters in the political world of other countries, too.
Check it out!

You're not alone - even here in the US, despite California being one of the most well-known states for classic car culture, many politicians in the last 20 years or so have been actively trying to rid the state of pretty much any car older than 1990, and more recently, non-electric/non-hybrid vehicles. Emissions testing sites and the DMV have both tried to pressure myself and other owners of older cars to scrap our old vehicles for cash, but we are resisting, for now.

there was some tries here too ( they initially gave 300$ or some free bus passes ), even Chrysler and Ford did participated in those
programs ( good word ? ) with some discounts on a new car about 10 years ago but there is currently none right now


which is not a bad idea.. i like to go see old vintage cars on friday, not a bunch of modified Civic or VW :grin:

I like to go out and see vintage cars on Thursday near me, and occasionally you've got some modified civics and Volkswagens too. The trouble is, we've been getting these gigantic rainstorms in Florida, and a lot of these shows have been postponed and cancelled.
