Hundreds of retro-cars of different years of production will be at the Metropolitan Exhibition. They will range from the old shabby Moscvytch to the refined Rols-Royce cars. Organizers promise that the festival will be even more spectacular than usual.
However, that is not all what you can see there. In addition to passenger cars, all the diversity of old vehicles will be presented at the exhibition: from rare gramophones and radios to bicycles. As a scenery, there will be large-scale historical reconstructions.
