On Saturday April 29th, we headed back down to Brooklands Museum, for their Auto Italia event, one of the most popular events hosted by the museum. The finest, and sometimes the not so finest, examples of Italian transport of all shapes, sizes and ages. A true eclectic mix resulting in there being something to appeal to everyone, from the Fiat 500's to the most exotic of Italian speed machines.
Making a glorious noise this Pantera was sure to make people look and listen.
The world's first true supercar, so they say. Not bad for a tractor maker!
Now, those are go faster stripes.
Anytime, anywhere, I believe is what the adverts used to say.
Every corner you turned, you uncovered some more stylish gems.
Had a poster of this car on my wall when I was younger, still turns heads wherever it goes now, alas I don't!
Line of Lancias.
One of the more unusual vehicles on show.
A rather novel way of carrying your spare wheel around.
All from a bygone era.
Like my good self it seems that a Fiat 500 has grown outwards in recent years!
Looking rather mean and menacing.
At last I found some exotica, more suited to my budget.
Only need to see part of the rear to recognise a true icon!
One of the more unusual paintjobs on show.
Some of the restoration on show was simply stunning.
Refined elegance at its best.
There is always more than one solution to any one problem.
How low can you go?
Of course these fine cars are best viewed on the move, and over at MB World we were treated to just that.
Little pocket rocket.
A very famous OSCA.
All options covered.
Not sure if the extra weight in the boot is for better traction or not?
A very glamourous and expensive traffic jam as this convoy prepares to drive home.
Once again another superb event at Brooklands, many thanks to all the people that made it happen.
