Yes, that's rigth.

From the 2004, every year each.
Is for long, the Best and Bigger classiscs Festival in Latin Américas., and the second behind the Peeble Beach meeting, of California.

During the five years, the visitors can see more 400 cars and trucks, more of 300 classics motorbykes in fantastic shape (had a 3 Vincent Black Shadows really cool, fantastic olds Harleys, Guzzis, Zundapp, Red Indians etc, and De Dion motorcycles)., also olds fireman trucks from the 1920's in fantastic shape.
I can see the beatifuls "fuerza Libre" cars, and the Touring racecars of the sixties, the Giulettas, the Ford Cortina Lotus, etc etc, etc

Next year, the meeting is in the same place, the San Isidro city, 25 Km to North of Buenos Aires town.

The jury give to ROYCE SILVER GHOST of 1920, the award "Best of Show 2009".


In the motorbykes contest, won a Harley 1926 with sidecar.

This year 2009, the meeting have 306 classics cars, and 34 olds trucks, in amazing shape, really.

The legendary Requejo-Chevrolet Wayne make for Ramón Requejo, 3 times F1 Argentine Champion.
This car won two times the 500 Miles of Rafaela.

The car are exactly like he run the last race, in 1965., all the parts are the same.

G'day again,

Nice pics - the Bentley registered UV 2767 is chassis #FR 2640, a 6.5-litre Speed Six with Gurney Nutting bodywork. This car was delivered to Mick Young of Adelaide, in South Australia and spent most of its life here. Later went to the USA and was being offered for sale earlier this year by P&A Wood in the UK. Any idea who owns the car in Argentina today?

Regards,
Damien
