Avignon Motor Festival

Daddy had a wish. A carshow was on the list. After a long time without a carshow it was great timing, that the AVIGNON MOTOR FESTIVAL took place in Avignon. Every year thousands of cars and motorbikes are shown. My family supports my car enthusiasm. Of course Avignon has much more to offer, the Pont du Gard, the popes palace and the medieval city. Beautiful town. Beautiful day, mild temperatures and lots of sun with lots of wind. That was a problem today.
The carshow was at the Exposition Area near the Airport. Some parts were also outside. Many nice, beautiful cars were outside but now covered with dust. The wind was blowing strong and the dust was coming into every single corner. Our hair looked grey.
But all these VWs, Renault, Peugeot, Ford, Porsche, Ferrari, Bugatti… they were still looking beautiful.
Even in the Exhibition Halls the dust was blown in. Renault Alpines, Formula cars were dusty.
At the outside areas we also heard a well known noise. The noise of a 2-Cylinder 2 Stroke Trabant engine. Yeah, unbelievable, there was a Trabant 601 S in green.
All the other cars were good old known cars like Porsche 914, Talbot Matra, Simca, Citroen DS and many more.
Motorbikes were also shown and on the outside track a Show was taking place every hour. Stuntdriver. Driving on the rearwheel, frontwheel.. Amazing what those guys did. Jonathan of course likes the Burnouts most (like me).
Even dragster Bikes and cars where there. The sound was amazing. Our baby definitely got goosebumps 🙂
In the mainhall A was the major exhibition theme the BUGATTI cars. From those very old race Bugattis to the latest Bugatti Veyron EB 16.4. 1001HP, 407km/h. Unbelievable and unreachable.
A friend from work also came. Jerome with his brother and wife. Unfortunately we were ready to go when he came, because after almost 3 hours cars and strong, dusty wind the kids were exhausted.
So we drove home. I took many many pictures and you can see some of them here: http://fotoalbum.web.de/gast/bigmek/AMF2009
