Lisbon - Vintage Car

 

Woke up one morning in Lisbon - must have been 13th June, St. Anthony's day, the patron saint of Lisbon - to find vintage cars on both sides of the street just below my window.  By the time I had breakfast and was out on the street, they had all disappeared, presumably on some cavalcade to celebrate St. Anthony.  No idea what this is and, of course, didn't get a closer look.  However, the badge on the door reads, "Clube de Automoveis Antigos da Costa Azul"  The Costa Azul is the south shore of the Tejo along to the coast and then south.

This white colouring makes the car seem slightly angelic

Did they creep up with no noise, Tom?
Since June 13 happens to be my birthday, Tom, I would have thought someone had left me a gift! grin
Classic cars, like this one, look great, but I would never dare own one. I think you need to be good at fixing them, and I would hate the cleaning.

Could be Ford Model A - a car that came in many variations. I like its very white colour.
Very classy looking in it's whiteness.
Certainly a fine looking car isn't it.
What a stunner, looks good in white
What a great little car, going off the mascot, I think Louis is right, a Ford model A
Rather splendid in White. Model A Ford seems to be the view and I have just googled it and it does look like a Model A
superbe voiture!!!! je veux la même!!! amitiés
Now that is classy...
