Autoclassica 2011 :: No expense spared
With more cars than you could poke a stick at, Autoclassica was truly a classy show. “Bonnet to the ground” you know you’re in the presence of a show stopper when the bonnet is almost as long as the entire car.
Super rare mustang! Looking tough for the big show.
1980’s formula 1 car in amazing condition, this machine was impressive!
Now you know what to do in case there is a ‘fire’ do not just drop and roll, lift and push to kill the fire!
This extremely rare car was in the price range of $40,000 – $60,000
A Porsche 356 Super coupe, yet another super rare car. This is one of my favorite Porsche’s, it still looks outstanding 60 years after its creation.
Straight from Hollywood, the fastest production car of its day. This 300sl is a futuristic car from the 1950’s – as iconic as coca cola.
Yes, it’s really one of those cool matchbox cars in the flesh! Le mans car’s are really the thing of dreams!
In 1966 the Porsche 906 placed 4-5-6-7 in Le mans, in 2011 it visited Melbourne.
Autoclassica – with so many cars worth so much money in the one place it was easy to see why there was such a large crowd!
Rothmans Porsche 956, a true down force machine.
This was by far the largest two door car in the show!
Spotted this lonely Fiat Dino not getting much attention, it is a shame there were so many cars that this one got overshadowed.
Another nice e-type Jaguar.
I think this is a Ferrari but I’m not sure?! It was jammed against a wall near the back of the show…
When I think of a Porsche this is what comes to mind! Maybe this is because I was born in the 80s!
1960’s formula 1 cars are so small and low to the ground!
The draw card of the show, this Holden Hurricane concept car was saved and restored for the show.
The Hurricane was equipped with a “retro-GPS” that used magnetic signals built within the road, it also had a wide-angle reverse camera!
I miss cool looking touring cars, v8 super cars are boring.
Is that a ‘light switch’ in the car and a pair of goggles? This car means business!
Is this a swan or an Ibis? Whatever it is, it is a strange choice of hood ornament!
I never knew that the Aston Martins used to look like a Mustangs.
You don’t see many chrome looking cars. I’m liking the covered rear wheels.
Classic not plastic!
The Citroen DS, ‘goddess’ had hydropneumatic suspension, this car could be dropped on its guts at the push of a button.
Autoclassica 2011 was huge! So many cars! It was great to see so many people enjoying these
well preserved pieces of history! With all this car evolution in one place it was hard to concentrate.
We at gripshiftslide can only hope that next years show will be even bigger!
