Lyon's Eurexpo Centre was swarmed with more than 38,000 visitors for Epoqu'Auto, held from 5-7 November 2010.
Attractions included a Bedouin-themed Peugeot tableau, complete with Dangel 504 4x4, a 404 pick-up loaded 20ft-high with crates, a live donkey and a belly dancer!
Alfa Romeo brought some rare road and race cars from its museum for the centenary, while Citroen clubs marked 40 years of the SM and GS with an orange GSX2 to match the '74 brochure on the stand.
Altogether the show featured 438 exhibitors.
Amicale Facel Vega's secretary Michel Revoy said, "The show is our club's most important display after Retromobile."
