On the 10 th of February a special exhibition of Czech historical cars was inaugurated by the Czech Ambassador H.E. Mr. Ivan Jančárek. The exhibition, which is part of the 'Fokus Tjekkiet' campaign arranged by the Czech Embassy, attracted great interest from the public as well as the media.

Veterans Opening

The Czech Republic has a longstanding tradition in Denmark as a supplier of road vehicles. According to the latest statistics almost 10,000 passenger cars were imported from the Czech Republic and sold in Denmark in 2007, which accounts for a market share of approx. 7%. Indeed, passenger cars are a main export item in the Czech foreign trade, and in the case of Denmark this export amounted to a value of CZK 3.3 billion last year, which was 15% of the total annual Czech exports to Denmark.

150 visitors participated in the above opening event and seized the opportunity to get more familiar with the history of vehicle production in the Czech lands. The various models displayed were gathered from owners all over Denmark. Some of the very interesting passenger cars were the Tatra 12 model 1930, Aero 30 z model 1935, and Škoda Popular model 1937. Some of the more modern models present were Škoda 1102 Tudor model 1949, Tatra 600 Tatraplan model 1951 and Škoda Felicia Super model 1964. The exhibition also featured some Czech produced motor cycles, such as ČZ 175 Sport model 1936, Jawa 100 Robot model 1937, the post-war ČZ "125", and ČZ "Rickshaw" 150 model 1948.
