Automotoretro TURIN February 2016

Turin pic1We visited this show for the first time last year in Turin and we enjoyed it so much that we decided to go back again this year. The show is held at the Lingotto Fiere in Turin, which is located next to the original Fiat factory. The show is host to various types of classic vehicles and motorbikes, including lots of Fiats!!!  The show is spread out over several large halls, some of which used to be the actual Fiat factory. There was also a large hall dedicated to auto jumble with lots of bargains on offer!

There were several Fiat 500 clubs in attendance including the Turin and Italian Clubs, both of them were displaying some lovely Fiat 500’s. For all the 500’s on display (and there were quite a few!) not one was the same, each had something different from the colour, trim or modification in some way, which was good to see so many variations. Also on display were a few Giardiniera’s and Multipla‚Äôs, which are also models I really like.

I even spotted a classic Abarth 500 doing a few laps round the track.
