In fact, the classic car shows are in Spain's province Tenerife on the biggest of all Canary Islands.


The exhibitions are mostly organized by the Tenerife www.retroclub, whose next classic car event may show its cars on another Island.

The dates of the car rallies vary, as they depend on those of the yearly carnival. The one of Puerto de la Cruz 2017 takes place on Tuesday February 28 by 14.00 in the afternoon on Avenida Colon. So far, the Tenerife capital Santa Cruz only has a date set for a crazy car parade called Carrozas y coches engalandados. It's on February 24 of 2017 in Avda.Francisco La Roche. 

Indeed, the Puerto Cruz and Santa Cruz car shows during the Tenerife mad season of carnival are different from those in some other places of the world.

Classic cars under palms by the ocean.

On March 08, 2011, the weather during the exhibitions was stunning, as portrayed above.

Atlantic ocean bathers didn't seem to find it cold to swim and to strip for the winter sun, while vintage cars were piloted past them. Temperamental palms by the wayside of Lago Lido Martianez lakes seemed to bow to the passing vehicles, as if they remembered them from the year before.

However, I wasn't happy. I remembered the first classic car shows, when the antique automobiles, such as this pioneer classic Ford paraded along Calle Zamora of old El Puerto Cruz town in some previous years. I preferred them very much. Why? In those days, many more people inside classic cars dressed the part.

Classic car shows on Carnival are nothing without Al Capone look a-likes who puff Cuban cigars. Also a vintage Ford must always be driven by a chauffeur, you know... That's why those were the good old days. Never mind the depression which followed in 1929.

Ladies on passenger seats of a 1920 or 1930 classic car should all be made up like Greta Garbo, Marlene Dietrich or Josephine Baker. Their hair styles, make-up and dress should mimic and remind the roaring twenties from far, at least.

But then wait a minute...

There were a few ladies who had made the effort and tried to play along to the jazz age scene.

They were dressed somehow according to the 1930 fashion of a century long past.

The oldtimer vehicles, which had arrived from Avenida Colon, were stunning and drove well, though.

By the way in 2011, all Tenerife classic cars were parked opposite the Lago Martianez.

Beside, admire a fleshy American Cadillac which was amongst them.

There was a yellow and black vintage Fiat car with an elderly driver that was dressed the part in Knickerbockers. Those casually smart trousers and their owner were befitting the mood of the Tenerife vintage car exhibition down to the T. Portrayed below is this olden day Fiat of the Tenerife classic carnival cars.
