I have just had a terrific weekend in Lyon on the CitroŽn stand at the annual Epoqu'Auto show. In my view it is more friendly and suited to the average car restorer and enthusiast than Rťtromobile in Paris. It is still relatively cheap to participate, whereas the Paris prices are forcing it up-market to just a venue for high value car auctions.
There were a large number of specialist suppliers for for all marques including several for Alpines and Matras.
I can share my list of cards from these people but cannot comment through lack of direct experience on their quality of service.
To get a flavour of the quality and diversity of the cars on show see my album at
In spite of the cool weather (the exhibition centre is well heated) this is an event not to be missed!!
