1930 Cadillac V-16

Last week after picking up a new vehicle in Melbourne for a client in Tasmania and waiting to drive onto the Spirit of Tasmania, a 1930 Cadillac was waiting as well and ready to go to her new home in Tasmania.

After a chat with the new owner, a car collector in Tasmania without any V-16 vehicles in his collection until now, I learned the following of the V-16 Cadillac history in about 15 minutes:before boarding:

The Cadillac V-16 was Cadillac's top-of-the-line model from its January 1930 launch until 1940. The V16 power plant was a first in the United States.

Only 4076 were constructed in its 11-year run, with the majority built before the Great Depression. The start of World War II reduced the sales, resulting in its demise.

PAGANI ZONDA - Hearing, Seeing and now Believing

Pagani is an Italian sports car manufacturer and the Pagani Zonda, a mid-engine sports car with a V12 Mercedes AMG power plant, debuted at the 1999 Geneva Motor Show. By 2018, a total of 140 cars had been built. Both 2-door coupé and roadster variants have been produced along with a third new variant being the Barchetta. Construction is mainly of carbon fibre and production ended with the model Zonda Zun a few months ago.

You could have seen the Pagani in computer games and play consoles. Our client Marc W was lucky enough to take it a level higher. He was invited recently to a a private function in Switzerland where he could see, touch and hear the Pagani Zonda S. He talks a different car enthusiast language since that day he saw with his own eyes, heard it with his own ears and has now more difficulties falling asleep at night.

When in Europe this October - Swiss Classic British Car Meeting at the shores of Lake Geneva 5 OCT 2019

Although AMVS does have a connection to Switzerland, we had forgotten about the yearly Swiss Classic British Car Meeting in Morges, on the shores of Lake Geneva between Lausanne and Geneva, until our client Marc W stopped by accident in Morges for a coffee - and a lot more than he ever thought off.

The Swiss Classic British Car Meeting started in 1991 and has grown continuously over the past 27 years to over 1600 vehicles coming to Morges just for the weekend last year.

It was the 6 OCT 2018 and Marc was kind enough to send a few pictures of the more than 1600 vehicles present last year.

In 2019 the 28th Swiss Classic British Car Meeting will be held in Morges on 5 October and if you are in Europe then, we strongly suggest to take the train, boat, car or plane (Geneva) and spend a fabulous weekend in Morges -
