From Aug. 31st until Sep, 2nd 2018 the Classic-Gala took place in 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 Stoewer was presented with 15 cars directly at the entrance of the garden.
This 1930 Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 GS Zagato was "Best of Show".
This 1904 Mercedes-Simplex 28/32 PS Tonneau gained 3rd place in the "Best of Show" category.
This 1929 Mercedes-Benz SS 38/250 Corsica-Roadster won the "Grand Prix" of the Classic Gala.
