Albufeira Classic Car Rally 21st and 22nd March

In Uncategorized on March 24, 2009 by cubsur51

This event proved quite popular! I missed the Saturday proceedings, but on Sunday morning the prize-winning cars and some others were on display on the Largo 24 de Abril.
The Austin 7 and the little bubble car (Italian – Ischetta or something like that) will perhaps bring back memories for some of you. There’s a close up of the Austin 7 instrument panel – how different from today! The Norton Commando will have a few of you reaching for the leathers!
Not many of us will have ever had first hand experience of the Bentley racer, the Chevrolet ‘gangster’ car, or the Clement or the Lamacq.
The cars were gleaming bright and most left under ther own power – not so the poor bubble car which suffered the igominy of being towed away! I hope you liked the pictures.
