Classic fans flock to Flanders for show

| 29 Jan 2012

More than 200 classic car dealers from five countries, plus 10,000 enthusiasts made their way to Ghent Expo in the Flemish region of Belgium from 28-29 January for Flanders Collection Car.

Organised by Hans Stevens and with a main theme of Aston Martin, visitors could admire a vast range of collectible vehicles, veteran cars, old and youngtimers, spare parts, clothing, models and related literature. 

Even though Stevens' motto is "everything you see is for sale", one of the most interesting cars among the exhibits, an awesome DB4 GT Zagato, was for display only. 

He said the Aston Martin was one of the only 19 genuine factory built cars from 1960 to 1963.

Close to the lightweight DB4 was the elegant Superleggera skin ready for a 4 litre 1967 DB6.

Alpine-Renaults are on the up and to demonstrate the fact an unspoiled – apart from the aftermarket alloy wheels – low-mileage Spanish A110 was for sale at €49,000 (main image). 

Perhaps the most elegant car of the weekend was a 1938 Delage D6.70 by Coachcraft of London, for sale at €175,000.

Among the rare siblings a 1935 Railton Eight Cobham Saloon looked fairly priced at €19,950.
