Sharing the passion
People own classic cars for various reasons. To collect, to maintain, to drive and enjoy and some for monetary reasons (speculation). I personally enjoy the driving before any of the other reasons.
Moving to a new habitat is about relocation and about meeting new people. If you have read my article about the classic car meeting in Langenargen you might have come across a picture of the red E-Type above. People go to meetings to meet other car enthusiasts in order to share experiences, ask for assistance or advice, and some times, you will find a new friend.
I was happy to meet someone who shares the same passion for Jaguar E-Types. Being new to the region it was very helpful to learn about the local support structures (Jaguar and classic car specialists). Diving into the typical topics of long year ownerships and restoration experiences, we soon found a mutual wave length to a lot of other issues. Last Sunday we went to the classic car meeting in Ludwigshafen am Bodensee. We enjoy driving our E-Types and share more than this hobby.
So, go out with your classic car, enjoy gatherings with likewise people. You might find new friends!
