  • 21

"Pearls of motoring in Poland - prototypes and classics, legends and facts" - exhibition of the National Technical Museum in Warsaw.

The elegant CWS-T1, the iconic Fiat 508, the legendary Syrena Sport, the famous De Dion Bouton or the only CHRINSKIN motorcycle in the world - these are just a few of nearly forty models of cars and motorcycles presented at the exhibition in the City Hall Hall of the Palace of Culture and Science in Warsaw. The exhibition starts 1 in July and will last until September 25.

This is a real treat, not only for motoring fans. The exhibition is - in its narrative layer - a cross-sectional tale of the history of motoring in Poland. History, which begins with the appearance of the first cars and motorcycles in Polish lands - like the aforementioned French De Dion Bouton, through bold and unique Polish constructions - like a Choinski motorcycle or CWS-T1 - the first Polish passenger car produced serially after recovery independence in 1918 year. Enthusiasm among the guests visiting the exhibition will probably also arouse the beautiful Syrena Sport - embodying the unfulfilled dream of Poles with great motoring.

Syrena Sport 1960

Like the Ford T - car legend: 19 years of production, 15 millions of copies sold! The vehicle that motorized the United States, and in the years 1920-1925 was assembled in Poland. You will also be able to admire the British Humber from the beginning of the 20th century - which is more like an elegant chaise with a motor than a car. The exhibition will also feature more contemporary but historical Polish models of cars: Smyk, Mikrus, Meduza, Beskid, Warsaw M-20, not to mention the iconic Fiat 125p, Polonez Analogue or Syrena 100. They will be accompanied by impressive models of motorcycles in the version with a basket - like the British Ariel or Junak M10 and without a basket - like the Polish Ryś, SHL Gazela or the cult Osa.

The exhibition also features a place for humor and a good joke - after all, you do not have to talk seriously about motoring only seriously. Presented at the exhibition model Buggy Quad Fiat 126p - being an individual modification of the popular "toddler", fire Zuk proudly named Ramzes in the export version to Egypt, or honest Fiat 126p - which visitors will be able to pack on the once famous "holiday in Bulgaria" - with it will certainly bring more than one smile on the faces of visitors visiting the exhibition. An attraction for children will undoubtedly be the opportunity to take a picture on a military motorcycle K-750 - popularly called "Kaśka", or launching the big 4-stroke Mercedes diesel engine.

In total, the exhibition will show close to 40 cars and motorcycles. The exhibition will be accompanied by curatorial tours. All descriptions of the exhibits will be available in Polish and English.
