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.
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.
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.
