We’ve had lots of car shows from the Midwest lately which, not surprisingly, tend to be a bit heavy on domestic iron. So how about dropping in on a show near Madrid? Kurtzos posted this at the Cohort; sadly, this is the only picture, but you can click on it to enjoy a full-size view and revel in the variety of cars present: Just where else will to see a 440 Road Runner and a 2CV in the same shot?
Cohort Outtake: Car Show, Spanish Style

That looks like a real Lotus 7 S4, while almost every 7 that looks like a 7 turns out to not be a Lotus.
The green Mopar with the Pseudo-Alfa-Romeo-Montreal stripes is pretty interesting, but I’ll take the yellow 2CV for commuting to/from my job as a rude, heavily-accented waiter.
It would have been cool if the White car had been a Dutton Malaga, but an actual Lotus has its own value.
It’s a “Hispano-Aleman Mallorca”… a Lotus 7 clone manufactured in Madrid in the seventies. It was popularly known as the “Lotus Mallorca”. Rear ligths were Fiat/Seat 124.
Oops! I did the post below before I saw this one…
And look at the Porsche-like badge…
“Just where else will to see a 440 Road Runner and a 2CV in the same shot?”
Leaving aside the one-of-700 Lotus Seven series 4s in the shot as well! As CJ said, these are basically never replicated.
Looks like there is also a gold Fiat 124 Sport, blue 2CV, blue VW plus another white one, yellow gen 3 Camaro/Firebird, white Alfa Romeo Giulia sedan, blue Renault 5 and a green Plymouth ‘Cuda.
The white car isn’t a Alfa but a Lada 1200 sedan.
You nailed it! Except for the Alfa Guilia, the rest is exact. It is in fact Fiat/Seat 124 (same body as the Lada 1200)
That gold fiat (seat) 124 sport looks tiny behind the RR !
