CADILLAC BIG MEET 2018 - A GREAT EVENT

The Cadillac BIG Meet is Europes biggest Cadillac Meeting. Its held every second year and it draws visitors from all over the world into the old Austrian city of "Kremsmünster".

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.

On the way back to Kremsmünster it started to rain heavily and it did not stop until sunday noon.

The Meeting on Sunday

Due 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!

Driving Tour 2016

The 2016 Driving Tour on August 27th 2016 will go through the famous "Salzkammergut".
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.
