Epoq’ Auto Event


Here is a small report about the Epoq'Auto event http://www.epoquauto.com


The meeting took place on three days (7, 8 & 9 November). About 45 000 visitors came to see approximately 750 cars & motorbikes.

There was also miniature cars and car parts vendors, a total of 450 stands on 40000 square meters.


It is the second event in France after Retro-Mobile in Paris.


This year, my Vanguard was on the stand of a local club "A Nous Les Vieilles Anglaises". A multi-brand club of English cars between 1950 and 1965.


I cannot say how many times I heard : I had never seen such a car before..."


But I was also surprised to meet also 3 persons who told me :"I remember travelling in a Vanguard a long time ago..."


One of them was native of Morocco and amazingly, his family had an history very similar to mine. This guy told me that his father had exactly the same car. His father probably acquired his Vanguard in 1952, at the same Standard agent, Gordon Woodroffe & Co in Casablanca, but unfortunately, he did not know what his father's Vanguard became.


I join some pictures...


Best regards.
