    2009 Auto Italia classic car & bike show

    Promotional Intro

    Over 300 cars and motorbikes of Italy on display, alas with a lower ratio of classic-era machines than in previous years.

    Held on the spacious grounds of Old Parliament House, Canberra, Australian Capital Territory, a pretty venue.
    Regrettably this site will soon become unavailable for car shows, due to ongoing damage from our now 10+ year drought.

    I did not take any notes so please feel free to provide exact identity and/or add comments to any vehicle

    Btw this blue Fulvia Sport (Zagato) wears a pre-1966 issue number plate...?

    Pic 1, 2: 1923 Lancia Lambda
    "This car had been sold new in Melbourne in 1923 but had ended up leading a hard working life in the 1930s and 1940s with Australian utility bodywork fitted."

    Salvaged in the 1960s and restored by 1979 with coachwork copied from a unique Murphy-bodied Lambda commisioned by silent screen star Gloria Swanson.
    Pic 3: Clockwise from left, Gloria Swanson, Greta Garbo drives a Lancia Lambda in 1923, detail of local car.

    Pic 4, 5, 6: FIAT from 1914

    I didn't think road Ferraris were ever RHD.
    Was this a coachbuilt/modified or a standard car?
    "Kimi, can you improve on your [race] finish?"
    "No. My Finnish is fine; I am from Finland. Do you have any water?"

    Early Ferraris (like most italian sportscars) were RHD because they believed it gave you better control. This changed in the late 50's and early 60's.
    Lack of charisma can be fatal.

    It was a fantastic event this year with a huge turnout (that was part of the problem for me - I went about 11:00am and it was just jam packed)....
