The Cadillac BIG Meet organisation team test-drove this years driving tour. Here are a few impressions of what you can expect this year. Make sure to register soon!
!!ATTENTION - THE DRIVING TOUR IS FULLY BOOKED!!
The theme this year was the "1967 - 1970 Eldorados" which we featured in a special exhibition at the venue.
Weather forecast for the weekend was catastrophic after one of the driest summers we ever had. This caused some cancellations of participants and we were pretty nervous that many more would cancel their attendance. On friday evening quite a few super nice cars had already arrived at the hotel.

Super nice 1953 Eldorado at the driving tour.
We then continued our tour to Linz where the cars were displayed underneath an art museum where the cars drew a lot of attention.
Stop at the Lentos Museum in Linz
On the way back to Kremsmünster it started to rain heavily and it did not stop until sunday noon.
The Meeting on SundayDue to the bad weather we had far less Cadillacs in attendance this year. Lot of regular visitors stayed home as well.
There was still a great mood at the meeting with lots of spectacular Cadillacs attending.
Check out our vast image galleries of the Driving Tour and the Meeting on the Cadillac BIG Meet website to see some fantastic cars you wont see anywhere else.
We had a great time there and enjoyed meeting all these great Cadillac aficionados and admire their fantastic cars.
See you again August 22nd - 23rd 2020!
The special exhibition - 1967-1970 Eldorado
Elvis Presleys 1972 Station Wagon.
The first time we had an ambulance at the show. Loved it very much!
Armin won Public Favorite and the 1951-1960 category with his 1953 Eldorado which he had been restoring to perfection during the last 12 years.
Starting in Kremsmünster at 9:30am at the Hotel Schicklberg, we will drive in a very long Cadillac convoy towards the lake "Traunsee" up to a small mountain which will reward us with breathtaking views down the lake into the Alps.
We will have lunch up there.
Later we will drive along the shores of the lake to our next destination on the "Attersee" - one of the largest lakes in Austria where we will have coffee.
We will then head back to Kremsmünster for dinner in the Hotel Schicklberg.
This years driving tour will be around 100 miles long.
Here are some pictures to give you an idea what you can expect in 2016. We shot the pictures during a test of the tour today.
