“Duell der Youngtimer” was a huge hit!

The classic Oldtimer world fair, held in the heart of the Ruhr area of Germany for the 16th time, has long been a fixture in Schuco’s events calendar. We presented almost all of the new releases for 2004 at the toy fair for the second time (following the “Faszination Modellbau” in Sinsheim) to a wide audience.

Above all, the Techno Classica 2004 was also a real highlight for Piccolo collectors. The “Duell der Youngtimer” set, in which the collectors’ edition tin is limited to 555 items, was snapped up by Saturday morning.

There was a lot of activity on the Schuco stand caused by the run on the collector’s edition tins, so the offer of free refreshment from Sinalco was welcomed by many collectors. Most visitors allowed themselves a quick breather, for in addition to the other Piccolo special edition models for Porsche, VW and motoring classics, there was a huge range of “oldtimers” and “youngtimers” to admire as well as historic utility vehicles and fire engines.  “100 years of Rolls Royce”, “75 years of BMW automobiles” or “30 years of Golf” are just a few of the themes which were at the centre of Techno Classica 2004. 

Over four days, there was a stream of more than 100,000 visitors through the 19 exhibition halls making Techno Classica 2004 a special event for Schuco once again.

Everyone on the Schuco exhibition team thanks you for visiting and looks forward to seeing you again in Essen from 7 to 10 April 2005.
