    Historic Vehicles & Culture

    Culture award for Rudi Mueller

    Many years already Rudi Mueller represents the Swiss ANF SHVF in FIVA. At national level he is also very active. Already Since 1999 Rudi is the main organizor of the event Oldtimer-in-Obwalden (O-iO). Obwalden is one of the 26 Swiss cantons, with the small town of Sarnen as its capital city. Thanks to Rudi’s hard work the Sarnen city center last Pentecost weekend was full again with historic vehicles, attracting thousands of spectators to admire them.

    Because of his extraodinary contribution to the city’s life and fame and his outstanding engagement the city of Sarnen granted Rudi Mueller the town’s first culture promotion award. The certificate was handed over by the mayor of Sarnen at the opening ceremony of the event, in the presence of other high-ranking local and cantonal authorities.

    This award very well supports FIVA’s message: the preservation, protection and promotion of historic vehicles is Culture. Each well preserved historic vehicle is a link with the technique and style of the past. The award not only is a sign of recognition of Rudi’s work, but also rewards the efforts of all the individuals, clubs and businesses taking care to keep these vehicles on the beautiful Swiss roads, and to show them to the public.

    O-iO is a very public friendly event, with free access for young and old. Also it is a rolling  museum in its own right. The historic vehicles parade in the Sarnen city centre, with spectators on board. And on Whit Sunday the event literally moves to other places in the region, this time with the small town of Beromünster as the final destination.

     

    For sure, O-iO is a concept that deserves to be copied.
