500 vehicles (automobiles, motorcycles, commercial vehicles, tractors, buses) from various time and makers will ride through the streets of the French capital city. Whether they are popular or luxurious, from France or from abroad, all these vehicles have their own stories and there is no better place than Paris in the summer to enjoy these beauties upon the amused look of enthusiast and curious people. The vehicles will leave the esplanade of the Château de Vincennes at 8:00am, and cruise through the most symbolic and particularly touristic places of: Place Daumesnil, Place de la Bastille, rue de Rivoli, Montmartre, and the Champs-Elysées, to arrive around I2:00pm at the Observatory's Terraces of the city of Meudon. Along the way, drivers will stop at place de l'Etoile, place de la Concorde, the Grand Palais and place des Invalides to allow people to look at the vehicles.
White is smart!
All the crews are invited to dress in white, in a fashion way that matches the age of their vehicles. A number of gifts will award the most elegant crews. People travelling on the free buses are also invited to follow the dress code.
