    Default italian car festival

    I was out for a drive in my 504 cab enjoying the warm weather when I drove past como park where there was an Italian car festival so I had to have a look. Lots of interesting cars .My favourate was a fiat 2300 coupe . If I had known it was on I would have put my car on display as it was made in Italy at Pinninfarina factory alongside fiat spiders and alfa spiders. I would like to have the next French car festival in this location because there are so many passing drivers stopping to have a look where as in Balwin you don't get passing traffic stopping and are only preaching to the converted

    Any photos, I'm always interested in Italian classics.

    Don't get many up this way, except for the guy in Gympie who owns 22 of different condition mainly non drivable

    The Citroen Club held the French Car Festival at Como Park North a few years ago. Agreed, it's a great location because of the passing traffic. Time for PCCV to re-think the Balwyn idea and either of the Como parks would be ideal.
    I think this year Renault are the organisers, & will probably use Seaworks in Williamstown again.

    Peugeot are doing this years so it's back at the paddock in Balwyn.

    We've used Como many times but like every venue it has it's problems. It's to small for starters, FCF is bigger than ICF plus the lack of toilets and food outlets made it difficult.

    I agree with David, the Balwyn site is much better in terms of size and size is one of the most important factors in running a car show. Como is too small.

    Also, unless you have very prominent signage, a car display at Como not that obvious.

    I hope the PCCV does not move it to Como.

    You stopped because you must have heard them all rusting away in the park?
