Ciney Retromoteur

Ciney Retromoteur is an internationally acknowledged classic car event. And even after the slowdown of the last 2 years because of the Covid pandemic, lots of international vendors and visitors showed up.  So did our photographer Wilfried Geerts. And his pictures show that the absentees were wrong once again.

Ciney Retromoteur is both an in- and outdoor show and covers nearly 35,000 m² of exhibition space. Hundreds of classic cars, both on 2 and 4 wheels are the stars of the show.  And for many collectors, the event is the place to be to find some gems.  After all, the show is known among passionate to be a true treasure trove.  The only thing you need to do is to go dig in the piles of memorabilia, literature, toys, and parts piled up on the tables of the exhibitors.

Replica Porsche enamel signs, but still a great decoration in your garage.

The show is definitely not a show that has the quality of cars that you will find at shows like the Paris Retromobile or the Stuttgart Retro classics. No visitor even expects to see cars like that in Ciney, where you can find more affordable, daily driver classics. and the same goes for the memorabilia etc… but no Ciney goes by without seeing some rare stuff.

In 2023 the Ciney Retromoteur will take place May 27 – May 29. You can find more information at the organization’s website, which is unfortunately only available in French.
