Default Lancia Club UK Centenary Celebrations - Sep 2007

Hi

I happened to visit the Lancia Owners Club Centenary Celebrations last September in London.

What a fantastic lineup of phenomenal vehicles - the great marque Lancia, was truly evocative of a more expansive and stylish era!

see the pics!
there are 40 odd pics so i will post them over 4 or 5 posts

Default Lancia Centenary Celebrations

these are the last lot of Lancias whose pics I managed to retrieve...

hopefully there are some enthusiasts for this particular marque - they were considered very classy cars in earlier days!

Very nice pictures Balan! Loved the Stratos, remember seeing one in the flesh quite a few years back parked at a gas pump in Interlaken.

Precisely, but besides just the layout, it's the rustic feel of that place. Covent Garden's main square is like a mini Italy...suits Lancia just fine!
