The European contagion claims another victim: The Amsterdam auto show, scheduled for next April, has been canceled, Reuters reports. The organizers could not find enough companies willing to show their wares – for a modest fee upwards from $ 1 million.

Founded in 1900, the show, named AutoRAI (for Rijwiel Automobile Industrie in case someone asks) has been one of Europe’s longest standing car expositions. In its 112 years of existence, the show was canceled only twice. Once during World War One. Once during World War Two.

    Jacques Tati will be on the way with a hauled Renault 4 camper static display... [Trafic 1971]. Finally arrives after the show due to Amsterdam customs.
