A trade fair report from EPOQU'AUTO in France

Finally, the time had come again. After the EPOQU'AUTO exhibition was cancelled in 2020 due to the Corona pandemic, exhibitors and visitors could look forward to three great trade fair days again this year. From 05.11.2021 to 07.11.2021, the "annual" EPOQU'AUTO exhibition took place in Lyon. Right in the middle of it was the Saab Club de France. The exhibition took place in the heart of the halls of Exrexpo Lyon-Chassieu on over 70,000 sqm, with more than 7,000 sqm of themed exhibitions. Epoqu'auto was the only major gathering of collector cars ever organised in France in 2021.

800 exhibitors were represented, including 180 automobile clubs, and for EPOQU'AUTO the show was a huge success with a record 82,000 visitors.

There were some special features again this year:

  • Simca celebrated the birthday of the Aronde (70 years old) and Simca 1000 (60 years old), and numerous models from the brand and its offshoots such as Matra or Talbot were also presented.
  • Bentley exhibition
  • One of the largest exhibitions was that of "Trycles Cars". These little-known pre-war three-wheeled cars were presented in original settings.
  • Sporting suits were represented this year at the Youngtimer stand.

The SAAB CLUB DE France decided to highlight two of its members' SAAB 900s this year. Michel with his 1992 900S convertible and Philippe with his 1991 900 Turbo16. The 2001 SAAB 9-5 AERO estate of Christian, was displayed on the Youngtimer stand.

On the stand of the SAAB CLUB DE FRANCE, commercial brochures of dealers from 1986 to 1991 were displayed, as well as folders with fabric and carpet samples and the colour palettes with which potential buyers could choose their future car colours at that time.

During these three days many visitors came to the stand of the SAAB CLUB which was more than satisfied this year.
