The photo captures all elements in a nutshell. Great cars from the early days of motoring, vintage, pre-war, post-war and smiling girls. Sprints on the palace driveway and dark clouds plus lots of silver lining over a superior location.
This was last weekend's Concours d'Elegance Paleis Het Loo.
Large crowds didn't let themselves defeat by massive showers, luckily limited to the morning hours. Not all of the sprint cars were in the fast Lane, and some of the sprint drivers had double joy due to the circumstances. Like renowned Austin Seven driver Bas Jansen.
The Pionier Automobielen Club celebrated its 60th birthday with a grand show up at the Royal Stables.
The 45 year younger PreWarCar celebrated with a new "PreWar Well Preserved" concours class. Won by an amazing never restored 1930 Lancia Dilambda tourer by Viotti (we particularly loved the supershort description "...bought from a man across the street in '59 ; since then in the family." )

Greg Mackie from Australia was kind enough to send a photo of his magnificent 1924 Minerva AB in response to our recent search for great unrestored cars. Too bad he was not in the position to send over the car for last weekend's show, but we are very grateful that he took the trouble to share the photo with us. Like the owner the car is very much unrestored and still kicking.
Perhaps he will reconsider when he will read that Minerva cars 1918-1934 are a featured category at the Antwerp Concours d'Elegance September 18 & 19 September.
Main theme: Aston-Martin, Lagonda. Featured Marque: Minerva. Further categories: Pre-war Sports & French curiosities.
Post-war categories: featured marwue : 70 years Bristol, Red Arrows 1947-1957, Fast Litle Gems, Italian cars of the 1960s, Supercars of the 1970s.
photos courtesy Greg Mackie who added: "The first photo - taken about 15 years ago - shows the second owner at the wheel. The Minerva has not been restored, just maintained. The photo below shows the original owner at the wheel, with the second owner on the running board. I am the third owner."
