Find here the content of the Newsletter N°8 – January 2023


First of all, I wish you a very happy new year 2023, full of automotive pleasures, visits to museums and exhibitions. The year 2023 promises to be rich in events. The James Bond exhibition, mentioned here because it gives pride of place to the special cars of the saga, settles for a few months in Brussels. Several manufacturers, models or events will celebrate anniversaries this year, an opportunity for festivities and exhibitions and retrospectives. The 100th anniversary of the 24 Hours of Le Mans is already the occasion for a special exhibition at Rétromobile, while Mercedes celebrates the 55th anniversary of AMG by bringing together several iconic models. The Savoy Automobile Museum continues to explore facets of automotive history, and after the impressive spoiler cars, here are the compact cars of the 1970s.

Info on the website

Few changes on the site since the last newsletter, apart from a few cosmetic activities. Facebook links are added as it goes, allowing you to follow the news of your favorite museums. The presentation page of the Prince of Monaco’s Automobile Collection has been reviewed and enriched with many photos following my visit. On the other hand, a new page accessible in the Blog menu allows you to find all the Newsletter already published.
