And finally, the oldest ones, but not the less spectacular ones : french curves and english dignity !

My pics are in the appropriate coachbuilder chapters guys. We must all have passed each other in the corridors.

Thank you for all your comments.
We should have organised a meeting at Rétromobile. Maybe next year ?
Iluvatar, I am positive about the Simca 9 coupé as a Facel production, but this is true that it is based on an original design from Stabilimenti for a Fiat 1100. For the whole story, look at my post in the Simca 8 thread in the Facel section !
As for the Siata 208 S, originally it was a Stabilimenti Farina realisation, but this one was perhaps built by Bertone, as Stab Farina closed at that time. Difficult to know, there was no badge on the car !

Thank you for the pictures. This event is on my bucket list.

I don't know why unrestored cars are so fascinating to me but that Ghia Chrysler looks so cool!
