Le Salon RetroMobile, Paris 2016

Maserati, McLaren, Alta & Frazer Nash at Retromobile 2016
As usual there was something for everyone at RetroMobile this year.  A huge selection of classic and historic road, rally, racing and record cards along with many stalls selling books, models, motoring art and memorabilia.
