TO CELEBRATE the 25th anniversary of the Antique Motorcycle & Car Club of Los Montesinos, more than 100 vehicles paraded through the town as part of the local fiesta week.

There is a big passion for these classic vehicles in the town and a total of 103 registered entrants containing of 300 drivers and passengers delighted those that lined the streets to witness the spectacular.  The parade was enhanced after other owners of vehicles not so old – the vehicles, not the drivers – were encouraged to take part in the special route with their cars and motorbikes.

The vehicles all gathered on the Avenida de la Marquesa where locals and visitors could admire at close quarters the timeless beauty of Lambrettas, Vespas, Isos, Moto Guzzis, Bultacos and Montesas, to name but a few of the more famous motorcycle manufacturers.  The two-wheeled exhibits were supported by their four-wheeled counterparts that included iconic examples of Minis, Citroën 2CV, Renault, Ford, Mercedes and Volkswagens among others.

With many decades of use between them, at 11am precisely the veteran engines roared in unison and began their route through Los Montesinos.  They continued on to Benijófar and Guardamar, before passing Santa Pola and Elche, later returning to the Vega Baja to finish off their day with lunch in San Miguel de Salinas.
