In the last 30 year, China has achieved a great economic progress. Through the Olympic Games 2008 in Beijing, China becomes more and more open and welcomes friends from all over the world. People get to know China better and better, as well as the experiencing of the oriental magic.

The Chinese automobile industry has also made a remarkable progress since 1980’s, who has just become the worldwide largest automobile market both in producing and sale in 2009, the sale of over 18 million cars in 2010 also declares that China has entered the era of automobile. With that influence, collecting of historic vehicles has been greatly popularized in China and attracted more and more oldtimer enthusiasts. In the meanwhile some historically and collectable high-valued oldtimers appeared to the publics in the middle kingdom, which encouraged the international classic-vehicle-industrial communication between China and the World. In fact, there has been thousands of classic cars from abroad entering China (drive-in and shipped in) every year to have tours, rallies, exhibitions, etc.

What a memorable trip this would be, but I don't think the '57 Buick is up to it. :)

I made that trip several years ago mapping a route for a famous French maker of overpriced plastic luggage and bags

It was the mid 90s I suspect things have changed.

the total budget should be round 15,000USD for one car with 2 people, including entry fee x 2, car shipping two ways, accommodations, etc.

But like CoolectionCar.com said:

"10.500 euro is a lot of money but for this level of adventure it is really really small money! People who used to participate in this level of rally would expect a needed budget of minimum 25.000 euro."

The last adventure: The international China Rally 2011 for classic cars.
