Malta Classic 2017 - pic heavy

Post by scimjim » Thu Oct 19, 2017 9:19 pm

For the third year running, Phil and I graciously took our wives on holiday to Malta - it being totally co-incidental that they were holding a Classic event the same week (again) :D

Some lovely machinery as usual - from 2CVs to ex F1 cars. The hillclimb on Thursday had to be cancelled as a drain collapsed after flash floods on the road through the village which becomes the main road while the bypass is closed off for the hillclimb.

So - concours inside the walled City of Mdina on Friday

That's a bloomin' big cannon mounted to the Austin 7 in the concourse section!

Phil's looking very Bruce Anstey in the last pic with the shades.

I reckon it's got the highest proportion of classics per capita of anywhere (the population of Malta is about the same as Bristol!). Certainly seems that way, both driving around the island(s) and events like this.
