Paris or Bust

Vincennes or bust.......................(car2.jpg)

If you’re in Paris on the 10th of January, lucky you. That day, as many as 500 vintage cars will be cascading through the city streets as part of the 10th annual Vincennes en Anciennes.

The cars will assemble at the Château de Vincennes before descending on the city streets. There will be everything from popular (Renault, Citroën) to luxury (Bugatti, Alpine, Porsche, Aston Martin, Facel Vega, Mercedes) dating from 1912 to 1979.

The route is 28 km in length, leaving the Château de Vincennes around 8am, passing the Bastille, the Opéra, Place Vendôme and Place de la Concorde, and culminating at the Trocadéro fountains or Place Rueff round 4.30pm.

Apparently if you stand on the Champs-Elysées, you’ll get a shot at seeing them twice, between 9am and 11 am. Send us some pictures! RM
