Proof From Techno Classica That The Youngtimer Takeover Is Well Underway

Techno Classica is one of the world’s largest events for car enthusiasts, and just about everything you see (barring a few manufacturer displays) is for sale. It’s in Essen, Germany, but I knew about it years and years ago as a teenager in Colombia. It’s been on “my list” for at least a decade, and this year I had the pleasure of finally checking it off.

It was a pleasure to attend this year’s Techno Classica in particular because the show was celebrating its 30th birthday, and being a fan of what the Germans call “youngtimers,” I knew the late ‘70s, ‘80s, and ‘90s contingent would be strong in 2019. Still, I was amazed by the selection of nostalgic cars and parts for sale in the many halls of the Essen convention center. Of course, there were plenty of the staples from the ‘50s and ‘60s, but we can all agree we’ve seen a Gullwing and a Ferrari 250 plenty of times already right? Instead, I chose to focus on the modern set of the classics on display, and I was not left wanting for cars to shoot, only for the crowds to momentarily part.
