WEEKLY WINNERS


More participants here at Sarcastic Mom Weekly winners

When I was in the Ardennes, we also visited a museum of old cars and racing cars which had been used on the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps, Formula One Belgian Grand Prix and the Spa 24 Hours endurance race. It is also home to the all Volkswagen club event, 25 Hours of Spa, run by the Uniroyal Fun Cup. It is considered to be one of the most challenging race tracks in the world, mainly due to its fast, hilly and twisty nature. Spa is a favourite circuit of many racing drivers and fans.

I used to have one 2 CV in the 80th



























I am not a fan of cars, but these oldtimers are quite interesting !

The same for me but it looks very interesting!!! And you did greaat captures! The deux-chevaux is one of my favourite because it is a car my mother and father had and it was very cool driving with!

That's a lovely collection of cars Gattina! You're the right type for a 2CV, that does not surprise me at all!

Cool cars and shots.

THIS was a MR. Gattino field trip! I like going to look at old - and new - cars -- but I'm not a drooler! I just want to pass through, see them and (after taking a few pictures) leave. These are neat though because they are some that we NEVER see here!

Wonderful photos. I could look at cars all day long and all night long. Old or new. I love 'em :)

Oh, I agree with you, I'm no fan of cars but the old fashioned ones are so interesting, like you're thrown back in time. I can FEEL the age of them in another way.

Those were a lot of great ones though, even among the more modern ones!!!

Cool...
