F Bourse Auto-Moto Opio (06)

Post by DARK STAR » Sun Mar 12, 2017 5:13 pm

Première sortie pour Dark Star cette année, le rassemblement énorme à Opio, située entre Antibes et Grasse.
Ceci comprend une bourse/échange qui couvre un surface considérable avec des centaines de voitures et motos de collection tout autour, vite occupant la place prévue et débordant dans les champs voisins au cour de la journée.
Pas seulement quantité mais qualité était l'ordre du jour.
Il faut d'abord mentioner la bonne trentaine de Mini, et beaucoup plus intéressantes, la dizaine de Ford Mustang Fastback, j'ai jamais vue autant :shock:
D'autres américaines étaient très visibles dont des Corvettes, une Ford 'doctor's coupé', et une Lincoln Continental délirante.
Etant en France, on attend toujours les adorables Alpine, et à Opio on était bien servi par plusieurs A110, une A106 et meme une GT4.
On voit actuellement quelques 'youngtimer' aux rassemblements, il y en a qui valent la peine tel la 240Z et Toyota Supra.
Coup de comédie, les voitures proposées à la vente par un garage spécialiste du coin, deux Austin Healey plutôt correctes mais 10 000 trop chères chacune, et une Jaguar XK140 bosselée, pare-chocs plié, sellerie très fatiguée à ... 145 000 euros.
On pourrait aussi dépenser une fortune sur les étals de la bourse mais j'ai résisté, l'excellente buvette c'était autre chose ...
Super journée, organisation bordélique mais bonne ambiance grace en grande partie aux motards, un rendez-vous à ne pas rater.

First outing for Dark Star this year, the huge gathering at Opio, located between Antibes and Grasse.
This includes an autojumble that covers a considerable area with hundreds of vintage cars and motorcycles all around, quickly occupying the planned place and overflowing into neighbouring fields in the course of the day.
Not only quantity but quality was the order of the day.
First of all, I must to mention the thirty-odd Minis, and much more interesting, the ten or more Ford Mustang Fastbacks, I have never seen so many.
Other American cars were very visible including Corvettes, a Ford 'doctor's coupé', and a delirious Lincoln Continental.
Being in France, we always expect adorable Alpines, and in Opio we were well served by several A110s, an A106 and even a GT4.
There are currently some 'youngtimers' at rallies, there are some that are worthwhile such as the 240Z and Toyota Supra.
A comedy turn, cars offered for sale by a local garage specialist, two Austin Healeys rather decent but 10 000 too expensive each, and a dented Jaguar XK140, bumper bent, very tired upholstery for only ... 145 000 euros .
You could also spend a fortune on the autojumble but I resisted, the excellent bar was something else ...
Super day, shambolic organization but good atmosphere thanks in large part to the bikers, a rendezvous not to be missed.
