Brussels Auto World! Classic Cargasms Abound!
Hot on the heels on my last Philly Auto Show post is a post all of my trip to the Auto World in Brussels, featuring cars from 1890 - today :cool: There's even a Jeepney in there :D They'd all make great "Name that Car Entries" :flipoff:
WELCOME TO AUTOWORLD WEB SITE
First my favorite :eek:
love the Bugatti EB110! Those are pretty rare
It was sick, because the day we were there, the Bugatti "Black Tie Gala" was that night, so we kinda got a sneak peak at everything. When I was looking at the Veyron (which there were four) I had to laugh because one of the representatives came up to me and started talking to me about the car, mentions it to be the fastest car in production. I had to respond, "What about the SSC Ultimate Aero TT?" She scoffed and walked away. Yea, the Belgium don't like being told that an American-made car smoked their French-built Bugatti.
Also, as I was looking at the BMW Isetta (not sure if there's a pic), a German couple started talking to me and go "You're not going to find something compact like this in gas-guzzling America."
I didn't have the heart to tell them I knew two people who own 'em and show 'em off every year at our local auto shows. The Europeans are very pretentious about their cars apparently.
But by far, the 1929 Minerva was the one that caught my attention.
I wasn't aware how rare the Bugatti EB110 was, that's pretty cool to know!
oh the good old "Veyron fastest production car" misconception
I love telling people about the SSC Ultimate Aero. One lady actually e-mailed me and thanked her for letting her know about it haha
Great pics! :)
