Classics Cote d'Azur monthly meeting

Post by DARK STAR » Sun May 08, 2016 2:10 pm

MENSUEL du THEATRE de la MER, GOLFE-JUAN (06)

Yes, we finally woke up in the south, and the first monthly meeting at the Theatre de la Mer of Golfe Juan made a spectaculaire début today.
For me the most spectacular was the race/rally Aston Martin DB2, in perfect condition but obviously well-used, as it should be.
There must have been a hundred cars, impossible to count as they were arriving and leaving all morning (perhaps all day, I came home for lunch).
Other competition cars included an amazing Fiat Abarth and an immaculate Alfa GTV which had collected its second puncture of the weekend :shock:
There was an Alfetta GTV freshly and superbly restored, many Porsches, a couple of Peugeot 504 convertibles, a Citroën Maserati, Ford Mustang, Fiat Dino ...

Of personal interest there was a Simca 1500 break, similar to the 1501 I used to love, a Triumph Herald like my Dad's, a better-than-new Peugeot 404 belonging to a friend and former neighbour, and a better-than-new MGB GT belonging to a friend and former neighbour - ah I seem to have already typed that.
Jean-Jacques Guerin bought the MGB recently because he has been unable to find a good SE5/a for the Scimitar Sortie in september and is too ashamed to come again in his Porsche. Finally of course there was one Scimitar, which you may recognise.
