|Pics & vids: Schloß Dyck Classic Days 2009|
In the first weekend of August, the 4th annual Classic Days were held at Schloß Dyck in Germany. Roaring engines, wining turbos and squeeling tires were to be heard around the closed track while the peaceful botanic gardens provided a very nice scenery for the Concours d’Elegance "Jewels in the Park". See the Concours' entry list here.
Our main interest was, of course, with the coachbuilt Jewels.
