A Day For Heritage And Culture

The fortune of the Skoda brand has been literally transformational over the last three decades. Where once upon a time Skoda jokes were ubiquitous in every pub on a Friday, their acquisition by the Volkswagen group changed the public perception  immeasurably to the point where they are now considered to be an equal to their “bigger” Volkswagen and Audi siblings.


One of the other great misconceptions about the Skoda brand is that it has very little history to report when in fact it pre-dates Audi by five years, (est 1899) and VW by nearly half a century (est 1937).


Originally known as Laurin & Klement the firm was originally a Czech automobile, motorcycle and bicycle manufacturing company founded in 1895. Based in Mladá Boleslav, (Kingdom of Bohemia) it was set up by two automotive pioneers Václav Laurin and Václav Klement with car production commencing in 1905, and saw the company becoming  the largest car manufacturer in Austria-Hungary.


This Saturday at Lightcliffe Skoda sees a celebration of the heritage with the Skoda owners club kindly providing over 20 classic Skoda cars, all been lovingly restored to their former glory.


The offer is open to all Lightcliffe customers and will be an informal get together so that customers can share and enjoy the history and culture of these iconic cars. Members of the Skoda owners club will also be in attendance to discuss their restoration projects and other interesting facts about the club and its interests.


The icing on the cake is that there will be a live broadcast on the day from Cheshires Mix56 radio who will be playing requests for customers favourite "drive time" music.


No appointment is needed and but the details can be gained from the dealership or by clicking on the following link.


A slice of culture and heritage could be just the ticket for a May weekend!

Clare James Automotive Limited is an Appointed Representative of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 497010). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allow Clare James Automotive Limited to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.
We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes Volkswagen Financial Services. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to Volkswagen Financial Services, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and Volkswagen Financial Services also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms, and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
