For the first time since FIVA’s founding in 1966 that the General Council (GC) had its meeting in Bangalore, India’s fast growing tech city. Seven members of the GC – Patrick Rollet, Mario Theissen, Peter Edqvist, Tiddo Brester, Tony Davies, Gautam Sen and Natasa Jerina Grom – along with Gian Mario Mollar, FIVA’s Secretary General, discussed the many issues and concerns regarding the historic vehicle movement across the Globe.With a full day that lasted until 6pm of Friday and a half day session to complete the rest of the discussion and deliberations on Saturday the 16th of March, FIVA’s GC had a very fruitful one-and-a-half day session at the Oakwood Residency, a charming apartment hotel complex in Bangalore’s exclusive UB City mall. To celebrate the occasion, the hosting organisation Federation of Historical Vehicles of India (FHVI) went to elaborate lengths to put up an excellent exhibition of 42 exquisite historic vehicles – ranging from a tiny, but enthusiastic Austin Seven to a giant of a Mercedes-Benz Nurburg – on the forecourt of the mall, whereby thousands of enthusiasts and spectators enjoyed looking at and photographing these rare beauties.In the afternoon of the 16th of February, the Delhi-based Osianama Learn [...]

In other words, the visual aspect of historic vehicles should not be underestimated.Therefore, we call upon you to mail us your pictures so more people can enjoy them, learn from them and appreciate the cultural value of historic vehicles.The rules are simple:You must have made the picture yourself, no copies, no collages using other people's (copyrighted) material!

FIVA Preservation Awards

Recognition for Historic Vehicles.
FIVA's Preservation AwardsIt 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 a 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 the 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. 1928 1 LANCIA LAMBDA SERIE VIIIV4 Engine, 2569cc, 69 hp at 3500 rpm Coachwork: Four-SeaterTorpedo, Lancia Entrant: Anthony MacLean (Switzerland)Compared with the technical benchmarks of its era, the Lancia Lambda presented in 1922 was one of the most advanced automobiles of all times.
