Riyadh held a fabulous car show in the oldest part of the city at the street track of the annual FIA Formula E E-Prix international electric car race series. Cars were on display from Saudi Arabia and the Gulf Countries. Many were with their owners on hand to speak to the visitors.
Two of my favourites were the dark red spectacular 1995 Aston Martin Lagonda, endless in expressing design delicacy, and the black 1959 MG A; a car with freedom in uncomplicated speedy mechanics connecting the occupants with the true feel of motoring. There were also the American classics, the art of unmissable presence. Gargantuan splendour. Also the Unimog, where in the world do we find a Unimog these days ?
Now where did I leave myself driving mini-sized, electric travel unit ?
