V8 engines, Rock 'n' Roll and BBQ

The US Car Convention at the Technik Museum Sinsheim enters its eighth round

Saturday 4th August 2018, from 9 am to 7 pm | Sunday 5th August 2018, from 9am to 6pm

On the first weekend of August the Technik Museum Sinsheim will become the Mecca for all US-car enthusiasts. At the popular US Car Convention, historical and exceptional US vehicles of all kinds can be marvelled at. Alongside a very large area for historic US vehicles built before 1987, there will be a special area for exceptional American rat rods and special conversions. So the range stretches not only from the legendary Ford T Model to the legendary Pink Cadillacs, but goes far beyond. A dealer's area, numerous dining options (including American BBQ) and, of course, cool live bands will ensure that this will be a weekend with no dull moments!

Chrome veterans polished to a mirror finish, uncompromising muscle cars, and the unmistakable sound of the V8 engine can only signify one thing: the legendary US Car Convention at the Technik Museum Sinsheim. The museum is again inviting visitors to its expansive grounds, now for the eighth time already.

Every first weekend in August, the museum square is transformed into an Eldorado for owners and fans of historical and contemporary US cars. The organisers expect hundreds of colourful road cruisers, fascinating restorations, and powerful modern hot rods. As usual, the museum's courtyard is reserved for the classic tail fin giants. In addition, there are special areas for extraordinary US rat rods and custom cars and curious conversions, as well as for modern models. There are still spaces available if you also want to participate in the convention with your pink Cadillac or horsepower-boasting Mustang.

The general theme for 2018 at the Technik Museum Sinsheim is "US Cars". Accordingly, March of this year saw the reopening of the popular American Dream Cars Collection: vivid scenarios, rare cars and a completely new look present the last 100 years of American automobile history over more than 1,500 m², from the 1920s to modern times, from the dirt track race to the glamour of the 1950s, and much more. A great reason to visit the convention in Sinsheim. In addition to visiting the exhibition, participants can showcase their vehicles to interested museum visitors and exchange ideas with like-minded people.

But the weekend offers even more. Besides a colourful dealers' area, there are cool live bands, such as the NightHawks and Betty Sue & the Hot Dots, to create an atmosphere on the grounds. Of course, food and beverages will also be on hand. On Saturday, and all the way into the evening. Both visitors and participants can round off the evening with a delicious BBQ and cool drinks.

The US Car Convention will take place on 4th and 5th August 2018 on the open-air grounds of the Technik Museum Sinsheim: Saturday from 9 am to 7 pm plus evening festivities, and Sunday from 9 am to 7 pm. Admission to the open-air grounds is free for both visitors and participants.
