The FIVA Preservation Award
It is very rare indeed to see a historic car, or bike for that matter, in its original configuration. As it left the factory in other words. Such a find not only time warps us back to the way things really were, it is also testament to the care and respect its keepers have shown for it over the years. It is a privilege to see chrome plating of a quality we can only dream of today, to sample leather of a kind no longer available and to admire attention to detail unimaginable in the time-pressured world we now live in.
It is to honour and record these original icons our motoring past that FIVA have created the Preservation Award to be given at select events around the world. Each of the brass plaques, weighing 1.2kg, will be individually numbered and registered, inextricably linking it to the vehicle and its current keeper.
