Great pictures Jenny.

Here's a quick question for Sam. When the cars are on display, how do you power up the systems. I'm sure the cars are not running (coz then the stadium would be full of fumes). The battery by itself would not be able to sustain the power hungry subs and amps. Do all these display cars have to use external power? (something like an ac > dc converter)

All show vehicles get a charging system from A/C to DC which keeps charging the battery, hence it can run for long hours.
Different ratings of recharging systems are available.

You get 12-15V power supplies that run off 230V ac and generate between 80amperes to 200amperes of current, enough to run the entire system.
These are generally connected and placed under the car. There is no need to start the car to run the system after this.

Okay, lets go on with the pictures! Ummm, what to show next lol?
The decision is hard haha. I think lets start with Pioneer who had a whole section with more "normal" cars (if that is even possible) - ones that are used in daily life by some real car enthusiasts - that belong to Team Pioneer - and are not only made for showing off at some exhibitions.

Here we go!

Okay, lets get to the smaller cars he he.

Isn't this a super cool little smart? Really sweet yeah! My colleague drives a smart and was really happy to find this one here. Not a chance that I would find an Opel Corsa

The good news is: of course, I had my camera with me! The bad news is: my batteries died almost in the beginning! The good news again is that TheOne® was not willing to accept that and walked around shaking the batteries non-stop in order to keep them running, putting them back in the camera, do the desired click click click and YEAH, made it, lol.
Over 65 pictures with a dead battery !!!And more coming up !! I wonder if the battery remained in shape after shaking its life out many times. Fantastic pics though. Personaly I would have left the plan of any pics with a dead battery like that. TheCouple® always go an extra mile for getting things done. Glückwünsche! Erhalten Sie es aufrecht! See I started learning German too

Coming from smaller cars, of course there were also bigger "cars" to see

Take a look:

Car + Sound Sinsheim, Germany-cimglr0436.jpg

Car + Sound Sinsheim, Germany-cimglr0484.jpg

Car + Sound Sinsheim, Germany-cimglr0483.jpg

This next one is my favourite one from the pictures here. Unfortunately, it was one of the very last pics I took and my camera would just not agree with me on coming back for another picture. It needed a break. So I have no view from inside, sorry.
