Weekend Edition: The Classic Motorshow Parking, Part. 1

classic_motorshow_2016_12

The thing with the Classic Motorshow is that you can park outside the venue only if you’ve arrived with a 30+ year old car. Or if you’re a honored guest of the show or work there or whatnot. But they check your papers as you drive in, and it’s better to be old. It doesn’t have to be in fancy condition, like my friend with a completely beat Corolla proved, but the older, the better.

A good example is this ancient Triumph, shod with gravel tires. Really.

And there were endless Isuzu Belletts there this year, like this white one…

And this lovely blue one. DOHC!

I love a good E-Type every now and then.

But the Isuzu 117 Coupé caught me by surprise.

In a similar vein, this very green Fiat Dino was a positive surprise.

You might have seen this BMW before on Hooniverse! The owner, Ville told me he was going to visit the show with the classic Neue Klasse car.

It was definitely nice to see the car close-up again.

Saabs were aplenty, as expected. Minilites fit the 99 so well.

I can’t tell which one I like more.

    The diversity! Perfect.

    Ah, some very cool stuff. The Datsun F10s sold in the US (at least the a/c equipped ones) had a small electric fan under the hood, which blew on the carb, supposedly to help with hot soak issues.

    Whoa, I’d never heard of the Bellett before. Seriously cool! This show seems wild.
