About a website
An interpretation of a website
The website of Wikov Veteran Club is interpreted as a source for basic information about vehicles Wikov for the general public and then as an information board for Wikov Veteran Club members.
This interpretation is based on basic goals of the club. Apart from making a friendly association of owners and supporters of Wikov cars, it is also for sharing information about those historical vehicles among professional and amateur public.
A link “Cars Wikov” with whole menu is especially for general public. Given information is in a brief and condensed form so that the reading would be entertaining and then so that it would not be so detailed. Although the details are interesting, they are not necessary for basic idea of Wikov vehicles.
The content of a website
The information on a link “Cars Wikov” includes history of the car maker Wikov, a construction of cars Wikov and other related areas which in summary proved a comprehensive and brief overview of those cars. Information about family and cultural environment of both founder family lines which had a significant influence on a whole technical level and graceful elegance of those historical vehicles and on marketing strategy their car maker can be found in its final part.
Other links of the website are especially for Wikov Veteran Club members, applicants for a membership in the club and other supporters and applicants for vehicles Wikov. Therefore, they contain apart from club matters also “A technical advisory”.
