Those receive a € 2 discount on the already attractive entrance price. In addition, the classic car can be offered for sale and there is the possibility to organize your own trunk sale.

There is ample parking space, where visitors can park the car free of charge before they visit the event that may be considered very promising based on the first two editions.
