I just got back from the 32nd edition of the Coupe des Alpes as it crossed the Col de la Madeleine above the ski resort of Val dÂ’Isere. Driving up the twisty, and sometimes very narrow, road the peaks still had a smattering of snow and the weather was absolutely perfect for vintage open top sports cars.

I don't think I've seen so many Austin Healeys in one place. 100s and 3000 a plenty all in amazing condition. Of course there were plenty of vintage Porsches, 356s to 964s.

The Italians were represented by some beautiful Alfa Romeos, Lancias and Ferraris. Each brand showing its different character and all amazing.

From America there were a surprisingly large number of Corvette stingrays, A Detomaso Pantera and a very loud AC Cobra. Music to my ears.
