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

Pic 1, 2: 1923 Lancia Lambda
Quote:
"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?

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.

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)....
