Took the day off to go to the Retromobile classic car exhibition in Paris on friday. Here's a few photos....

Bizzarrini Strada:

1931 BMW Dixi 3/15 DA4 - the Dixi was an Austin 7 built under licence and was where it all began for BMW's car division:

1952 Cadillac Series 62:

1982 Chevrolet Camaro Le Mans race car - I learned something new: I never realised GM campaigned the Camaro at Le Mans!:

1956 Chevrolet 3100 Cameo:

1966 Citroen DS coupe:

That Bizzarrini is pretty cool. But what's with the manufacturers of 3-wheeled cars? Haven't they ever seen Mr. Bean?

That Pininfarina three-wheeler is the largest three-wheeler I've even seen - a proper family sized car - and the only three-wheeler I've ever seen with four doors. Having the single wheel at the front is always the worst place for stability too.

The Ellipsis, in case you were wondering, has four wheels in a diamond formation.
