Fresh catch

Some cars spotted at Moita (Lisbon area) autojumlbe.  This is a much smaller event than the Aveiro Automobilia event I allreday had reported here.

Fiat 1400 Cabrio

Volvo 122 S

Mercedes W118

Golf MkI GTi

Ford Taunus P3

Ople GT 1900...

Datsun 120Y...

Theteh stand from the portuguese classic car web forum with the Jomag's XJ

I've been there with my friend Luis a young petrolhead and AE86 Trueno diehard fan. As the event haven't a  classic car only park and we both practice "self presevation parking" , we left the cars in a faraway area of the carpark...

Got the latest C&SC and further to the report from Bowral NSW on page 17 I can add a few more. The great thing about these big events that are open to all is the sheer variety and the 'anything goes' attitude. Think 'Classics On The Common' with 30° sunshine.

As mentioned there was the Ford T Yellow Taxi;

The 1936 Graham-Paige;

more to follow.

The 1942 Chrysler Windsor looked like it had driven straight out of a Robert Crumb cartoon.

But we also had a couple of rare French racers; Bugatti 35;

and a Salmson complete with dummy driver mannequin dressed appropriately that gave many a passer-by a fright;

More later........

A classic car in a  different kind of show...

This "Morris Oxford" is the art work of  Joana Vasconcelos, like it or not, she is  the most famous portuguese artist of this new century. One of her perfomances is a continuous video of herself driving the portuguese route Nr 1 (Lisbon>Oporto) in a Piaggio Ape.

Recently she had a big exposition at the "Palais de Versailles",(Paris).

Scary stuff Nuno, like Stephen King creates the Morris From Hell - very funny, but art?

Good thing she couldn't afford a Mercedes 600 Pullman!

More from the Berrima Historical Vehicle Society at Bowral in February, I would have thought this Cadillac would have been worth far more restored as original, but maybe the owner could not afford the cost of replating the bumpers;

How about an Austin 'Landcrab' 1800 van?  These were sold in Australia as 'Ute' conversions, and here someone has added a roof;

Fabulous Bristol;

and classic Vauxhall 30/98 helped raise the tone.

May be even more to follow.......

Like the Fiat, I had never seen that model before, but I only just noticed Herbie parked behind, he certainly gets around, I saw him at a car show here last year. Well spotted Nuno.

More from the show in February.

How about not one, but two identical Lancia Lambdas?

a 1908 Renault AX;

a '36 Buick;

a couple for RolyMo;

another MG, I guess the rego' identifies this one?

and there is still more to come......

Thanks Chris,

This Fiat is from a member of the portuguese classic car web forum, but i don't know him personally.

Last week-end, I went to MOTORCLASSICO, a classic car indoor show held at Lisbon. Due to the strong debt crise, there was less professionals than the previous years, but from a portuguese market point of view is good show.

The organisation invited a lot of clubs and with some inventive solutions they managed to fill all the gaps between expositors.

Some of those solutions;  An exposition of some portuguees made 50cc bikes (a big trend here ...). with big spaces between them...

 

One of the most famous portuguese sport 50cc's, the V5, here the early model in the most comun collour...

And a later model from the 80's, basically the same machine, 30'years on, and there is the explanation why this  industry did not survive after the end of import taxes. The strong following those bikes have now assure their preservation and thats good.

 

Other solutions, something close to a  rally car exposition...

 

more to come....
