Our royal-class restorations
Concours / Exhibitions
- Trentino Classic
- ORW, Wiesbaden
18 - 21 August 2005 - Switzerland - Paris
The old-timer rally through Switzerland and France is both a sports competition and a tourist pleasure ride for its participants: cruising through France in one's own old-timer together with like-minded company. One of the highlights of this trip, too, is the concours d'élégance.
Bearing start number 40, this Borgward Isabella Coupé, model 1959 (Figure 1), which was restored by Automobiliar Schreiber, came third in the category of post-war vehicles before 1960.
ADAC Trentino Classic
1 - 5 October 2004 - Riva del Garda
The ADAC Trentino Classic is not an old-timer race. Car enthusiasts and connaisseurs meet up for old-timer touring. Leisurely and in the heart of nature, round trips are made through the beautiful landscapes of the Trentino, and other participants and their vehicles are watched and admired. The highlight of this event is without a doubt the Concorso d'Eleganza at the Piazza Duomo in Trento. The historical square in front of the cathedral provides the ideal setting for these old-timer jewels.
The interested audience may indulge in awe and admiration, the expert jury must award cups in three age classes. Bearing start number 31, the Mercedes 220S Ponton Cabrio, model 1956 (Figure 2), which had been restored by Automobiliar Schreiber, participated in the ADAC Trentino Classic and came second.

After passing the finishing line, Klaus Wiegmann from Taunusstein, the owner of the Borgward Isabella, received the Adam Henkell Cup for the most beautiful post-war old-timer.
