Cypriots love old American cars and they came to show it at the Motor Festival în Ayia Napa. At least that’s my impression after visiting the events which gathered a lot of retro cars.
Pontiac, Dodge, Fiat, Peugeot, Citroën, and many more are a pleasure to look at. I am not an expert so I can’t tell how well they are restored, but they look nice. And I have the feeling that the colorful American ones were the attraction of the show!
Then we had some muscle cars and even a Ford T Speedster from the beginning of the last century!
The entrance to the Motor Festival is free, and in the evening there is entertainment and music.
So, if you love classic cars, and you want to combine a holiday on the island and the possibility of admiring some beauties, then you have to book your holiday for the last weekend of October.
Plenty to choose from at the Motor Festival
Tens of cars made the parking at the harbor look small at the end of October.
The festival is already at its third edition, and it looks like the organizers will have to find a bigger place to fit all those who want to participate.
On the second day, I saw a group of retro cars that wanted to be part of the event, and they barely had room to fit them inside the big parking.
The only thing that I really regret about this event is the impossibility of going around to check the cars, but I understand that space is an issue.
Now I will just let you admire the cars that I hope I identified correctly.
