Prestigious classic car event? We are there!

Zoute GP Rally & Concours d'Elegance - October 2019

What a delight to be able to participate at this magnificent event in the posh Belgian seaside resort Knokke!

Luc & Bernard drove our original Belgian Jaguar XK120 Coupé which we very carefully restored, preserving her delicious original patina. Our blast on the dijk along the WesterSchelde in Zoutelande Holland was memorable.

At the same time we presented no less than 4 classics from our collection at the Concours d'Elegance on the Zoute Golf course.

- 2 extremely rare Alfa Romeo 1900: a very stylish, completely restored 1953 Farina Convertible and an exclusive 1954 CSS Zagato ex-Mille Miglia.

- Our splendidly restored and ultra rare 1953 Cisitalia 505.
- The ex-Prince Leopold Bugatti T43 Grand Sport.

Brussels InterClassics - November 2019

We have a strong link with the Brussels InterClassics show (in the nineties during 10 years we were ourselves the organiser of this event). We consider our participation as a home match. It's a pleasure to meet so many of our customers and friends.

Also for the November 2019 edition we brought over a dozen of our classic cars to represent our classic car activity on a well situated stand in the main Hall 5.

Cherry on the cake was the fact that we obtained the "Best of Show" trofee for our freshly restored Lancia Flaminia SuperSport Zagato.

InterClassics Maastricht - January 2020

Excellent idea to organise a "Forgotten Classics" theme stand, for which the organisers invited our very rare Bristol 404. This "Gentleman's Express" belonged to King Hussain of Jordan and was restored by THE Bristol specialists in the UK regardless of costs...

Retromobile - February 2020

Impossible to miss this fabulous event which traditionally "opens" the classic car year.

Luc & Bernard met many classic car friends, customers and colleagues in Paris and were very proud to pose besides the very exclusive Bugatti T59 from our King Leopold, showing a terrific patina.

Techno Classica Essen - 25-th till 29-th of March

As every year for the last 30 years, we will once again participate at this major European classic car show. We didn't make up our mind yet which classic cars will be « on show » on our stand in the central Hall 5, but chosing some interesting pearls from our collection won't be a problem.

Please come by to say hello. We look forward meeting you in Essen.
