At the beginning of September the AVAVA, the Versaillaise Association of Vintage Car Lovers, gives us an appointment. Not for a monthly gathering at Cathé (which looks like this) but for Volants et Calandres 2020 its big annual event.
It is on Sunday September 6 that the old ones will meet in front of the Marie de Versailles for Volants et Calandres 2020. After Alpine in 2019 for the 10th edition of the event it is the English brand Jaguar, well represented in the cars members of AVAVA who will be in the spotlight.
More than 80 alumni are expected for the event which will begin at 10 am with the gathering of participants on site. At the end of the morning it will be the start of the walk. For an hour and a half, the cars will take the direction of Saint Cloud, instead of the usual ride to the Vallée de la Chevreuse. There they will even have the opportunity to parade in the park before returning to the town hall of Versailles.
Indeed after noon the cars will remain on display. There will be musical entertainment and while some participants will be able to picnic in the Town Hall gardens, the cars will be on display for the pleasure of a large number of (and masked) public.
From 2.45 p.m. it will be the parade of elegance. An expected moment of the Steering Wheels and Calandres 2020, and previous editions, it will allow the most beautiful cars (registered in advance) to parade on the red carpet, accompanied by the comments of the speaker so that the most beautiful cars and the most beautiful crews are rewarded.
If you want to come and see the cars, don't hesitate. If you want to register, the first 80 cars can do it for free, just go to the AVAVA website (by clicking here) to do it !
We leave with a few photos from last year, while waiting for ours as we will make you relive this event in which we are partners.
