Perigueux Classic Auto event 16 & 17 February 2019
Citroën 100 year anniversary
The Salon des Véhicules Anciens is staged by the VaaP association each February on the exhibition/fairground just west of Périgueux.
This Classic Car event occupies the whole site, with selected cars on display in two large exhibition halls plus visitors’ classics allowed in and out of the grounds during the weekend.
Along the roadways and grass areas of the fairground an auto-jumble takes place selling car parts and automobile literature from stalls.
2019 is the 100th birthday of the Citroën marque and most models produced since its creation will be on a central display, surrounded by stalls with selected specialist companies with expertise in auto-restoration and supply of parts, remakes, tools and other automobilia.
Another exhibition hall hosts well over 100 cars from several dozen clubs and organizations from around Aquitaine and further afield.
A large block is specifically allocated for ‘British-cars and participants’ and for 2019, we look forward to showing ten more unusual British cars, some of which will have come from the UK for the event.
Classic-cars and motor-cycles of all types and ages are driven into the grounds over the course of Saturday or Sunday: entry is free for both the classic car and its driver, so about one thousand classics turned up to be admired by the public at each of the 2016-17-18 shows.
To quell your hunger, full sit-down meals (20-25 euros) are catered for in the restaurant-hall, while around the grounds, mobile food-stalls provide light refreshment.
Outdoor displays of military vehicles, fire-fighting and farming equipment also spread around the several hectares of the fairground, between dozens of auto-jumble stands of all sorts on the grass and along the roadways. Here you will find collectors’ items, trim, materials, wiring etc. new parts or tools as well as motor-related literature.
Entry and exhibiting a classic is free for the vehicle and its driver.
Tickets for other visitors are sold at the main gate ticket office.
The show has attracted over 7000 visitors in past years and receives quite some attention from classic-motoring, local and other media.
VaaP look forward to a similar success for the Citroën 100th anniversary event on Saturday 16 & Sunday 17 February 2019.
