Autotron classics: half a century of passion for vintage cars!

The year 2023 marks a special milestone for Autotron Classics. This fair has been a paradise for classic car enthusiasts for 50 years. A place where time seems to stand still and where the glory of bygone car times revives.

A golden anniversary full of surprises

This year Autotron Classics is going extra big. Not only because of the golden anniversary, but also to thank the visitors for their years of loyalty. If you come with a vintage car from 1975 or earlier, you not only get free parking, but the driver also gets free admission! And for those who will turn 4 on November 5 or 50e celebrating your birthday, there is an extra present ready: two free tickets!

Where old friends meet

Autotron Classics has always been more than a fair. It is the place where old friends meet, where new friendships are made and where the love for vintage cars is shared. The halls of Autotron will be buzzing with activity with stands full of car parts, books, tools and much more.

DAF: a Dutch icon in the spotlight

This year the fair will focus on a special Dutch car brand: DAF. With the unique Variomatic transmission, DAF has left an indelible mark on automotive history. During Autotron Classics 2023 you can enjoy a spectacular DAF exhibition. From classic models to a DAF converted into a coffee bar, it is a feast for every car enthusiast.

  1. It is not only far away for me, but also far too expensive in terms of parking. Is this for real enthusiasts or for commerce? I'm afraid it will also cost the exhibitors money.

  2. I was there today, it was scandalously expensive, just the parking, and not to mention the expensive, bad food. In most places you had to look for items for sale with a flashlight because of the poor light. The exhibitors were also not happy about it. Now I understand why many fairs go to Houten. Much better organized (except for the food), no 8 euros for parking but free. Motorcycle fair for ladies is free and that motivates the ladies more quickly to keep the man company. And this makes the man go again because he doesn't have to go alone.

  3. We will go, but there is little left of the original Lips Autotron, first in Drunen! What an (affordable) time. And then a hobby for everyone...

    • Thanks to people like Kees as a true enthusiast, the classic car still exists. It's just a shame that the hobby is now becoming unaffordable, now that big money is getting involved.
