Paris Retromobile and auctions 2014

The Retromobile show is every year a great meeting place for collectors and enthusiasts from all over the world.

Many dealers show their stock which seems to get more expensive as the grounds get more expensive.

The English were the first to have nice stands with great cars but now the Germans have come too!

Apart from the French Artcurial auction at Retro itself, Bonhams has invaded the Grand Palais with several hundred cars..

And this year a first for RM at the wednesday at a huge tent outside of Place Vauban.

Some impressions of Retro and the auctions:

At the Retro you found a never built Bucciali, very impressive!

Great competition cars as the Stratos and 911, all dirty.

A Maharadjah car exhibition.

Another Intermeccanica Italia, albeit it nearly 50% (!) more expensive.

Delage's and Delahaye's everywhere.

Mr Louwman brought his Swan cars.

Nice period colour Osca Mt4, last seen in red..

A lovely BMW 328 although like most it lost its original chassis somewhere...

Maserati 150 S seemed bright... and new.

Before the Artcurial auction the cars are lined up in the back, not the nicest surroundings for your beloved car.

Nice Panhard at Bonhams, although probabely a too high estimate (100.000 Euro.....) so no sale.

You see and like the Alfa 1900 CSS Touring, a last series example, in the catalogue... And then you see the car delivered to your door. It is no longer dark red or rosso amaranto but... purple. Amazing how you can be fooled.

Cisitalia 202 project for a complete makeover..

Facel Vega brought over from the States and sold well.

Paris is not only about cars. Lunches and dinner parties and delicious deserts.

Trying out a famous Talbot Lago racer.

RM had yet another D Type Jaguar.

Nice Ferrari 750 Monza with original body next to it. Maybe restorable...

Great presentation and great crowd at RM.

Nice Alfa 1900 Touring selling to a dealer so we will see how much it will be soon.

Great presence. A very early (homemade) electromobile.

Nice lineup of Alfa GTA's.

Best was the dented and crashed 1600 GTA with holes in the floor but still very tempting. I hope it won't be restored.

The unique but rather overrestored Ferrari 166 MM with Oblin body failed to impress or sell.

The American style restoration of the Alfa Romeo 1750 still attracted buyers.

Picnique en style Francais!
