Gallardon - Les Ateliers des Pionniers à Ciel Ouvert 2016

A 1928 Sandford 3-wheeler making a demo run up the 400 metre course outside the old station at Gallardon.  These sporting 3 wheelers were made by an Englishman Stuart Sandford in Paris.
As I was feeling distinctly under the weather I only spent 25 minutes at this lovely little event in Gallardon nearby where I live.   There were demo runs, old cars and motorbikes on show, a "Vide Garage" and of course the museum itself.  A few pictures below of these pre-1960 vehicles:
A Bugatti goes out for a demo run.
An old Triumph motorbike starts up the course.
A Morgan 3 wheeler.
Early twentieth century Bédélia Cyclecar
Big Yellow Taxi
Girl on a Motor Bike
Looks like a special of some type.
1923 Salmson VAL Voiturette
Indian motorcycles - made in Springfield Massachusetts, USA.
Fifties Ford Fairlane.
Gladiator motorised bicycle from the early 1900s.
Saw them at Versailles earlier in the year.  Is this also a Gladiator?
Late 19th century Léon Bollée three wheeler.
Donnet car.  This was a French marque that disappeared in 1934.
Twenties Renault NN1
Thirties Peugeot 201
Beach Buggy
Must go and visit the museum which is open on Saturdays and Sundays from 14.00 to 18.00 April to October.

Here is a link to their website.
