In nearby Lanjarón we stumbled upon a parade of classic cars looping through the town. There were some beauties including a Morgan, Citroën, a very handsome and plump old Jaguar and a few Mercedes. If anybody knows what the large, open-backed car is, please let us know.
It’s a curious passion – driving from place to place in vintage vehicles. While their beauty can’t be denied it’s a bit like walking around town in a pretty bonnet adorned with cherry blossom, hoping everyone will stop and stare (a bit like we did). It must appeal to the show-off in people.
The clip below begins by overlooking the Moorish castle in Lanjarón twinkling in the afternoon heat, as our attempt at replicating a scene from The Italian Job unfolds.
