    The Wartburg, Trabant IFA Vehicle club is holding its first meet of the year on the 24th of April 2016 at Lacock Village and Abbey in Wiltshire.

    Below is a description from the club

    It’s all change for Eastern Bloc Vehicle Day 2016. Our opening Cold War Classic vehicle event of the year moves south to Wiltshire and combines with FBHVC Drive-it-Day. On this day, drivers across the nation are encouraged to fill the roads with classic vehicles of all origins and descriptions.

    ****Sunday 24 April 16**** Our day starts in the attractive National Trust village of Lacock, just 8 miles south of the M4. Lacock has been the setting for Harry Potter films and numerous TV costume dramas. Pub breakfast is available for early birds and those stopping over (see below).

    Mid morning, our Cold War Classic Convoy will head off for a leisurely 35 mile drive along the byways of Wiltshire. With refreshment and photo stops en route, we’ll take in attractive villages, the North Downs, a White Horse, and the prehistoric monuments at Avebury and Silbury Hill. If that wasn’t enough, we can expect to meet and greet many other ‘Drive it Day’ classic cars out on the road on this special day.

    After lunch, we spend a leisurely afternoon at the excellent motor museum at Calne - www.atwellwilson.org.uk We’ll meet up with Cold War Classic colleagues not on the run, visit the museum (discounted admission for participants) and view the many other Drive-it-Day classic cars expected to call in. Light refreshments will be available.

    Eastern Bloc Vehicle Day is open to all Cold War Classic vehicles designed or produced behind the Iron Curtain in the post-war period. This is an important opportunity to fly the flag for our unique vehicles on this high profile day.
