On this panorama you can see AMERICAN LA FRANCE Typ 12 "Simplex", made in USA in 1914 (on the left), AMILCAR Type CGS made in France (1924) and AUTO UNION V-16 made in Germany in (1938).

In the beginning of 20th AMILCAR automobiles were extremely popular among young and sportive drivers. In 1934 racer and yachtsman Eugen Kansky took part in Monte-Carlo "star race" with this car.

AUTO UNION V-16 racing car was built a specially for mountain climbing competitions. With this car J.Stuck won La Turbie competition France.
In 1997 this racing car was totally rebuilt by Crosthwite & Gardnier, England.
Fuel consumption of this is 60L/100km...

Great pano! It reminds me to take my family to an oldtimer meeting. It is so nice to see the happiness in the faces of 80 or 90 years old men driving a motorcycle or a car of at least the same age.

It sure is! We have every year a vintage cars rally here, starting in Barcelona and ending in the city where I live (900 km!) and they seem to have such a great time dressed like 100 years ago! I published here a pano of those cars about 2 years ago

Hi guys!
Maybe we could arrange some kind of international Virtual Retro Cars Show? :) Here at Viewat or as a small separate project...  What do you think?

Hi Vil,
nice idea. As a first step here at Viewat it could be done easily. All we need is to agree to a title, write it into the discription and then all the images can be found with the search-tool (words). As a second step the Viewat team might add a third search-tool (perhaps called collections) that shows all the titles. That would make it public and gives everybody the chance to participate.

Hi Heiner!

Ok, we could start like that. So, what title we should use - Virtual Retro Car Show?

I think such Collections (or Sets?) would be a small, but useful update to Viewat. Maybe it would be interesting for all users to have a possibility to create their own Sets/Collections? And I guess it shouldn't be very complicated to create such feature.

At first there should be Collection Title and Description, possibility to add/sort/remove items and maybe editable Collections link/url.

I'll send this conversation to Bernard, and let's see what he says about it... :)

Hi Vil,
totally agreed.
I've added Virtual Retro Car Show to the description of my oldtimer meeting.
