The new edition of the Traversée de Paris will take place this Sunday July 31, 2022. For this summer edition, about 700 vintage cars over 30 years old will parade in the city to discover historic places!

The Taversée de Paris en Anciennes is one of the biggest events in Paris for old car amateurs. Twice a year, for a morning, Paris streets are enlivened with old cars, motorbikes, bicycles, tractors, buses, light goods vehicles for a crazy ride across Paris. 

Meet on Sunday July 31, 2022, for a ride from Vincennes to the Terrasse de l'Observatoire in Meudon, where a friendly picnic is planned.

A few pictures:

Whether you are a collector or not, this is the occasion to enjoy a travel back in time thanks to these cars that crossed the centuries. The Traversée de Paris is the occasion to shine a light on the rolling oh-so ecclectic and oh-so rich rolling heritage presented by vehicles from many countries and brands - some of them even disappeared.
