Veteran Motor Cars

0.40 Euro : Aero 30
In the 1930s, a sporty-tuned type Aero 30 was designed with a dynamic bodyshell with a characteristically long engine bonnet (therefore the nickname Czech Jaguar), powered by a two-cylinder two-stroke engine with the performance of 30 k, being transferred to the front wheels.
Aero automobiles were also popular in Slovakia for their simplicity, endurance as well as for their favourable price and they were regularly appearing and winning at various sporting events such as the Czechoslovak 1000 Miles between Prague and Bratislava in 1933 and 1934. Aero 30 and Aero 50 triumphed in their categories at the Slovak 500 kilometres in 1937 and 1938.

0.80 Euro : Aerodynamic Tatra 87
Tatra, which nowadays has no contemporary names other than the "Eight", was manufactured from 1936 - 1950. The vehicle had an eight-cylinder, air-cooled engine with a volume of 2,968 cm³ stored behind the rear axle, which was able to bestow speeds of up to 160 km / h, consuming only 12.5 litres of petrol. It was designed for middle class users because, given the size and furnishing of the interior, it provided very comfortable travel. Overall, 3023 cars were produced which were exported to many countries of the world such as South Africa, Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, France, the Netherlands, Hungary, Germany, Austria, Romania, the Soviet Union and Sweden.
