Rétromobile 2018 – still the very best

Rétromobile (7th to 11th February this year) continued to serve up delight and surprises for all tastes and pockets.  For SAHB members, watch out for the full report in the next issue of the SAHB Times, which will appear just after the end of February.

But the printed SAHB Times cannot fit in more than a few of the pictures we managed to take.  So please enjoy the slide show!  Please also send us any comments or stories that these pictures might prompt.  You don’t have to be an SAHB member – all contributions are welcome.
