PreWarCar started as a concept in 1998 when links on pre WW II cars & makes were scarce. A portal for the scattered information on automobile history and car makes from Aachner to Züst. All those famous and forgotten automobiles, sports and racing cars and (his)tories attached to them. Bringing together the classified, the auction, dealer, restorer, car club, enthusiast, gallery, rare pictures, event, motor show and rally is our mission.


We are always looking for new, interesting contents for our websites. Because we value your individual participation we'd like you to share your stories with us. We love anything that is bizarre, different and away from what you see in general. We love barn finds. Unknown events. Forgotten makes of car and other oddballs. Yet it can also be about people, art and basically anything automotive as long it is intriguing.

Please do let us know if this appeals to you, we would be delighted to hear from you!
