Valladolid Motor Vintage 2022 breaks the records of exhibitors and the public

Sunday, with the autumn sun and good temperatures, favored the atmosphere at the Valladolid Motor Vintage, which was attended by thousands of people. , c. fat

A sunny autumn morning transforms Paseo Central del Campo Grande, Recoletos and Plaza de Zorrilla into an incomparable exhibition

Cars, trucks, tractors, vans, motorcycles …, about five hundred motor vehicles, but, above all, about five hundred stories filled with lovers of life stories, of human adventures associated with them all. Like the owner of a 1977 Citron GS, who, faced with remarks about the perfect condition of his car, offered the appearance of a new car in the sun on the first Sunday of October, far from showing the mark of its 45 years, Said: « My uncle, its first owner, deserved to be kept in this way.”

Or Luis ngel Martínez del Pico of Palencia, who enthusiastically described how his Rolls 20/25, “manufactured in 1934 and registered, curiously, on January 1, 1935”, was a manual advance regulator, or how he introduced a carburetor in Canada. Bought and fixed by a Bilbao mechanic. Or Miguel Angel Rubio Pea, who repeatedly cranked the two-cylinder engine of his 1920s John Deere tractor for fans to hear. The sound, in stark contrast to Jose Antonio Martin’s Ferrari V8 or the giant Chevrolet Corvette engines parked in front of Maranello, is very different from the two-cylinder BMWs of the fifties or the little monkey cylindrical of Vespino that his college owners in the sixties. Clash of times, brands, styles, iconic or more modest models.

all ages

And fans of very different ages. Isidre López, responsible for the Historic Cars in the Seat, commented on how the event, organized by El Norte de Castilla, attracted his attention, not only by the presence of ‘experienced’ fans, as participants and spectators.

And, well, among the drivers of the five cars brought by the Spanish brand (850 Spyder, 124 Coupe, 127, 128 and Ronda), a reference in the sector was the director of ‘Motor Clásico’, Jesus Bonilla, who did not hesitate to point out. For that the number of vehicles and the environment were “impressive”. Classic car driver Carlos de Miguel, like one of the car drivers in this collection, was amazed at the variety and quality of what he saw.

Of this variety, a significant increase in industrial vehicles is worth noting, from the beautiful Fiat Colonial truck from the years of our Civil War, owned by Luis Misiego, a tireless collaborator of this phenomenon and with more than five decades of experience in concentrations. Of the Classics in Valladolid (half a century earlier it organized the first Classic Rally in Valladolid during the time of Mayor Bolaos, and with Ramón de la Pisa), from 1971 to the illustrious military American general, by Eugenio Muoz, via the impeccable Avia From 1979 by Rodrigo Izquierdo or the small but impeccable Citron 2CV van from 1955, by Jess Sancho of Segovia.



And one cannot overlook the Chevrolet Bus, which has been restored and presented by the Association of Friends of the Railroad, led by its president Eugenio Moreno, who ran service between Medina del Campo station and the Las Salinas resort.


Passion, hobbies and pride. But a responsible pride, a willingness to show vehicles, whether they be two huge and luxurious Cadillacs from Javier Candido, a Seat 600 or a tiny Voisin Biscuit, a Vespa or a Pooch Minicross.

This desire is to show not because of conjecture, but because of a desire to share stories, anecdotes, adventures in search of a piece, or impossible restorations. And in this wandering between cars, motorcycles and trucks, the unexpected encounter with Mario Ochiuzzi, who introduced three motorcycles: a Harley Davidson, a Royal Enfield and a Douglas, with a unique piece: the first gasoline pump, from the year 1914, Since gasoline was previously bought in pharmacies …

Classic car Valladolid shines in its 'museum' of motor vintage

And finally, the organizing team went into this Valladolid Motor Vintage 2022 with a sense of great coexistence, the absence of darkness or obstacles and, in short, a happy tolerance in this time of change. The organization was made possible thanks to the Valladolid City Council, Mapfrey, the Michelin Foundation and the sponsorship of Lexus, and the cooperation of Coca-Cola and Rock on Wheels Spain.
