I took some pictures at the Brussels Retro Festival a couple of weeks ago. It's main theme was a celebration of Paul Frère's career. His Le Mans winning Ferrari 250TR 59/60 (chassis 0772/0774) was flown in from the States and some of Frère's favorite cars were on display. Frère will celebrate his 88th birthday on 30 January :

Agreed, superb pics.

Not nearly enough Porsches of course, but you had to work with what you had!

That very, very yellow Jaguar...is it a pukka car? It looks too good to be true. I note that the number plates are on the wrong ends of the car? Assuming it is a UK registration, that is, the white plate should be on the front and yellow at the back. And if it using reflective number plates like that, it must be post 1972 (or thereabouts) so is it a replica?

Wonderful pictures. It's great to see that Paul is still looking so fit and healthy. A true motoring legend.

Thanks.
Paul Frère is walking with a stick now. He had a serious motorcycle accident when he was 84....
Nevertheless, he drove the Le Mans winning Audi around the La Sarthe circuit this year and in a reasonable time. Afterwards, he complained about the instructions he was given by the insurance company to brake early!

We could have met... too bad...
