From Aug. 30th until Sep, 1st 2019 the 15th Classic-Gala was held at Schwetzingen. At the fantastic sunny saturday and in perfect atmosphere in the baroque garden of the castle about 180 cars were presented and judged by the jury. The spacious grounds gave enough room for each car and thus also for the visitors. This years honorable make Glas was presented with its almost entire production line directly at the entrance of the garden.
