Default Classic Car Show, 2007 Birmingham-England

Hello fellow Team BHPers,

I have attached some snaps taken by me a few years ago in England whilst i stayed there.

Forgive me if the pix do not meet the hi-standards seen elsewhere on this site, i was still struggling to break in a new camera back then.

Hope you folks enjoy the pix as much as i enjoyed seeing these well preserved gems in real.

This is the 1st installment containing pics of some classic Alfa Romeos, more to come in subsequent installments.

Mods - I haven't taken the liberty to delete registration numbers of these vehicles since these snaps were taken at a very public exhibition and were there with the respective owners consent for snap taking, drooling, fantasising etc etc.

brilliant
looking forward to seeing the snaps

around the same time in 2007 i was witness to the lancia centenary celebrations in Covent Garden London - elsewhere on this forum I had posted pics of those cars.
also some lovely cars in a few museums I had visited including the transport museum in York and so on.

cheers

An Aurelia? I would have thought its the Flaminia Supersport Zagato. But maybe some Lancia expert can enlighten us on the same.

whichever it is - it is beautiful.i love lancia's - always have. but am not an expert certainly.
the Flaminia, Fulvia, Aurelia are all truly evocative cars - evocative of a more spacious, genteel era - 1950's and 60's which is why I like them very much.
