Another eclectic mix from Portugal. Could it be that a smaller country without much of it's own motor industry is more open to a wider variety of imports? (And I am not including the Portaro, we have covered that before.)

Anyway, that looks like an interesting show, one to put on the list for my next trip back to Europe! (Well, I don't really need an excuse to visit Lisbon, it's always on my list).

And as a fan of the VW Combi, I am sure you will like this one with matching trailer..

Last wek-end the usual Lisbon meeting of the portuguese classic car webforum,  held at the 4th sunday of every month, was flop as police block the surrounding roads for the "womans race", so only the few enthusiasts who came very early find the way to the meeting...

Thanks for all the photos from the show. A good variety is good for everyone, and a few real rarities in there too.

Some Chryslers in Australia.

They had their own identity from the early sixties with the first 'R' series Valiant and subsequent locally made Chryslers, unfortunately ending in the eighties with Mitsubishis built under licence.

The first Valiant.

But the Mopar faithful here also fly the US flag, hence a few big chrome land yachts, like this '48 Windsor coupe.

or the more predictable muscle car Dodge Charger.

I remember that place, the Belem ferry terminal just along the river from the Monument of the Discoveries. Now that is one impressive statue, if you have any photos of the Monument Nuno, let's have them on here!

Meanwhile, back in Sydney, we had the annual Shannons Classic at Eastern Creek last week.

Nice bright sunny day again (and it is still winter down here) good variety of cars, and a fleet of ex-London buses doing the tours around the track.

First one of my favourites, and always glad to find one at a show - even better, there were two - the Studebaker Avanti

Then a few Buicks

And Cadillacs, why is there always a pink one? As tacky and as common as two stripes on a Cobra rep. or even these days on Mustangs too, do they think it makes them look like Elvis?

And continuing in a vaguely alphabetic order, there was a 1913 Chalmers;

A '34 Chevrolet hides an Austin Sheerline;

An early Citroen DS

A Corvette

A 1934 DeSoto Airflow

more to come,
