Ennstal Classic 2017

July 21, 2017 by ChrisJamesAuthor

Here’s a post for classic car enthusiasts.  From 18 to 22 July, the Ennstal Classic sees 220 vintage cars, produced between 1928 and 1972, converge on the sleepy Austrian village of Grobming (apologies for the missing accent above the ‘o’ in the name).  For the full list of entrants, click here.  I’d like to say that my presence was planned, but in fact, it resulted only from serendipity.  When booking our week’s hiking in the Austrian Alps last March, we had no idea that the Ennstal Classic was taking place, literally at the end of the road from our apartment.  Still, I’m not one to look a photographic gift horse in the mouth, so here are a selection of the best images I’ve managed to capture today, from old Triumphs to Fords to Jaguars to Porches and Alfa Romeoes, among many others.  Hope you like the shots!

    Anyway, my heart did a happy dance when I saw the pic of the old Porsche. Those lines are unmistakeable. Ditto the Jag, I have to say. Real classics.
    Enjoy your holiday!
