... why Switzerland and the United States are becoming increasingly important for classic cars?

 

A special aspect that needs to be taken into consideration is that the speed limits in these countries have also limited signs of wear on the cars. Furthermore, Daimler Benz has met especially high quality standards in the vehicles built for export.

Particularly those for the US had a 4-year factory warranty, they came from a separate assembly line, and in their production both gap dimensions and the quality of workmanship were monitored a lot more closely. Moreover, in the United States German cars are not mere commodities, but they are seen as family members and special status symbols. Most of them are washed by hand, almost fully equipped ex factory, have exclusive color combinations and are workshop-maintained.

Often sales contracts and all bills still exist after 20 years. This special maintenance, love and conservation of value of beautiful vehicles also applies to Swiss cars, and in Switzerland there is the additional advantage of the double license (driving two vehicles with one license plate number), which contributes to the conservation of classic cars in large numbers. These arguments are in favor of the US and Switzerland as suppliers of our classic car future. By contrast, Germany's "environmental bonus" has led to the destruction of a part of potential modern classics.
