Italian Car Show Hobart 2013

Club Motori Italia held their annual vehicle display on the Parliament House lawns today. I managed to take a little time out from our market stall at Salamanca to pop down and have a look (thankfully, the market and the Parliament lawns are right next to each other).

It was a great display this year, with a fine variety of cars including Alfa Romeo, Ferrari, Fiat, Lamborghini, Lancia, Maserati and De Tomaso. Both old cars and new.

As always, I’m thoroughly impressed by the range and quality of cars hiding away in our little state. I’ve got a Subaru Brumby sitting here at home and I can’t help but think it’s going to have to make way for another little Italian runabout.

  1. That’s a very yummy line-up you’ve photographed.
    Cars I like include the navvy 105 Alfa coupe, the 308GTB and the Guilia. But it’s hard to go past the Urraco (which I haven’t seen for years) the SZ and the Mistral. Plus the X1/9s, that Alfettas and the Guilettta Spyder. Wish I was there.

    1. Dan, I was commenting to someone today about how fortunate we are here. We’re a city of just 250,000 people in a state that is likely the most economically challenged in the country. Still, we manage to wheel out a fascinating collection of cars when the conditions are right. This Italian show was one such occasion. Classics By The Beach this morning was another (photos still to come).
