2016 Post Event Up-date: A huge thank you to all participants for making the 12th anniversary Deutsche Classic at the Oley Fairgrounds a successful event – in spite of the rain!
The 2016 Deutsche Classic theme songs for the day included “Rain Drops Keep Falling on My Head”, “Have You Ever Seen the Rain” and “Covered in Rain”. But many of you still came, with your umbrellas and the enthusiasm that fuels the passion to produce this all-German automotive event.
We welcomed 145 show cars, 5 show motorcycles (first year that German motorcycles were judged), 55 parts vendors and over 820 participants, a much smaller event than on past sunny show days, but a great bunch of folks that made the best of the day. You guys are awesome!
Thanks to each and every one of you, new and old, the greater Deutsche Classic family, for braving the weather and supporting the event! A special thank you to our staff and show car judges for all their dedication and hard work – 50 friends & family without which this event could never happen. We too want to thank the food service staff from the Oley Fire Company for serving us great food and beverages throughout the day.
Congratulations to all the 2016 Award Winners. Unique, hand-crafted awards were again given to judged vehicles in 31 categories. Be sure to check out the listing of all the 2016 award winners. The 2016 photo gallery will be uploaded as soon as the photos are received from the photographers.
