Concours d'Elégance Paleis het Loo

Concours d'Elégance Paleis het Loo

The show was host to a fantastic collection of pre-war racing cars and a retrospective of cars designed by Giugairo.  Autovisie organised the Dutch National Concours at the same event. The 2008 theme was cars of the sixties.

Het Loo is not just about esoteric classics - there is an entire section devoted to 'ordinary' cars, that so many people used to own and now hold fond memories of. The 2006 event even had a section with light commercial vehicles.
