"We announced vehicles manufactured until 1945 in the bulletin, but half of them come from about 1920,” the club’s president, Jozef Pollág, told the SITA newswire.

"We announced vehicles manufactured until 1945 in the bulletin, but half of them come from about 1920,” the club’s president, Jozef Pollág, told the SITA newswire.

The oldest vehicle will be the Dedion Bouton from 1908. According to Pollág, this car is the oldest not only in Slovakia, but in Eastern Europe. Due to the age of cars, the organisers reduced the number of kilometers that should be driven.

The first presentation will begin at the railway station in Poprad. The joyride will end at the Max Mall on the Juh housing estate. Viewers will be allowed to choose the most beautiful car. There will also be a competition on August 13. Pollág estimates that 30 to 40 cars from Czech and Polish owners will come. SITA
