Hey, I saw that same Estafette at Versailles back in 2015 (but not in 2017 when I was last there)!

Excellent, a Lot of the shots in France remind me of when I was a kid traveling on holiday in France. The vehicle parc was so different in the 1970's France to 1970's UK.

Nowadays everything is silver grey and apart from the steering wheel, maybe the odd badge, sometimes a car park could be anywhere in Europe.

 

Yes, not many modern cars now they get there that we don't see in the UK.

 

The Concerto is indeed a rebadged R8, instead of fitting the XUD to Concertos they badged Rover 218 diesels as Hondas.

Great thread, I've just caught up on a year's worth.

 

Thanks, and well done for getting through that.

And a couple of modern Toyotas

Nice one! Not the first time we've got photos of the same thing.

This road was a bit frustratingly busy and slow, but happily it gave my son the chance to fire off some random shots of this scrapyard we crawled past which turned out to have some good content.

Saw one or two other Palios, I was surprised at how late this one was.

Thanks to daughter SL for seeing this one. They bring the misery my stops sometimes cause upon themselves.......

An interesting variety to ponder here. Not sure if it was a commercial enterprise or just someone's hoard.

1979 Mercedes 280S by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr

 

This had presence. Can't imagine it was a particularly economical down from NL-land though.

1985 Renault 4 F4 by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr

 

Could only have been bettered if the driver was wearing a beret. As well as seeing stuff like this in use it's the classic sound they make that's so distinctive.

Renault Fuego GTS by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr

 

Didn't look like it had gone anywhere for a while, yet still surprisingly solid and complete. I suppose that's benefit of the southern climate?

 

In and around the Luberon to come.

First one I seem to have got a photo of, then I saw another one with round lights the next day. I think we got them in the UK as well, pretty sure I have a brochure.

Days 4-6 In and around The Luberon Pt1.

 

We hadn't been this far south in recent years, but on looking back at old photo albums it turns out we did pass through this area back in 1996 when we did a big tour of France in our Acclaim. Very nice area, not as busy as I'd feared and a reasonable amount of old stuff still to be seen.......

Classy way to cruise around the area on a sunny Sunday morning.

Visited a hot and busy market, but I spent most of my time walking outside the aisles so I could get photos of the old crocks the traders were using. There was another Transit Mk2.5 there.

Another older Honda, I think the first one of these I've seen in France.

Lots of C15s still at work. This one a little more unusual.

Two in one. I didn't notice the Rodeo at the time I took this photo.

1977 Renault 6 TL by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr

 

A real, live 6, in beige. I'd actually stopped to take a photo of a 403 pickup that was here, but I forgot about that when I saw this one.
