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.

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.

42500231190_d48f243839_b.jpg

1979 Mercedes 280S by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr

 

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

 

29372059057_978e039bf7_b.jpg

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.

 

42500227320_a0b0456c94_b.jpg

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.

Peugeot J7 Pizza Van by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr

 

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.

 

30503131938_c3855f3a60_b.jpg

1985 Honda Civic Shuttle by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr

 

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

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.

Great spots!! Love that Fuego, it would be nice if someone took pity on it and brought it back to life - early 80s Renaults can't be that difficult to fix, can they? :)

Thanks Craig. That second Fuego does look intact, combine it with stuff off the first one I saw and I reckon there's a viable project.....

 

Days 7-12 In and around The Luberon Pt2

 

29493730797_548d19b581_b.jpg

1987 Renault 4 F4 by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr

 

Mid-repair. Did see a few of these this year.

 

29493726577_79d429d5a0_b.jpg

1990 Renault 4 TL Savane by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr

 

Very tidy. This was at a tabletop/boot sale, which meant lots of cars were in town parked-up in every possible place.

P1020824.JPG

 

Lots of purchasing opportunities, I could have got a lot more. The Norev Simca has been re-homed since I got back......

1987 Peugeot 309 1.3 GR by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr

 

Didn't see many pre-facelift 309s.

 

30608516928_d36bdc088c_b.jpg

1989 Fiat Fiorino by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr

 

Good to see one with the Mk1 Uno-style front end.

 

29561690917_fd58a2cfdc_b.jpg

1969 Mercedes 280 SL by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr

 

This has got about a bit - built in Germany, exported to America, imported to the UK and seen by me somewhere in France.

 

43781401534_362c03e366_b.jpg

198? Opel Kadett by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr

 

Could only have been better if it was the saloon model.

 

29608895257_52d15e4508_b.jpg

1985 Peugeot 104 GLS by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr

 

I think this was the only 104 seen, great to find just parked in a street and looking like it's in use.

 

44522424512_f4a74a13fe_b.jpg

1980 Citroen Dyane by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr

 

Came out well for something taken by Mrs SL when we were on the move, with one of the local hilltop towns giving it a bit of context.

 

45297287751_d75799560b_b.jpg

Mercedes G-Wagen by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr

 

Went up and down Mont Ventoux. Lunar is probably an over-used description of what it's like at the top, but it really is like that (obviously without me having visited the moon to offer a truly accurate comparison). What should have been one of the most capable vehicles there appeared to be struggling.

 

43853361294_9fb4ee536a_b.jpg

2018 Renault Alpine x2 by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr

 

First time for me seeing any of these. They sounded good blasting up the mountain.

Another F4.

Good to see and hear on the move. I didn't realise they offered a version without the rearmost windows this late on.

Mercedes L508D(?) Camper by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr

Most people concentrate on getting photos of the abbey with its field of lavender in the foreground, I found a more interesting viewpoint.

 

44641395531_792afdeebd_b.jpg

1986 Honda Prelude + Renault 4 by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr

 

Interesting to think both date from 1986, something of a contrast. The Prelude was sadly a bit knackered.

 

44612943302_3db4600e2b_b.jpg

1989 Volvo 740 GLE 2.0 by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr

 

One model that's rarer in France than the UK?

Now on the way home. Spread the journey out over a few days and took the opportunity to visit places that we wouldn't normally go to or spend a whole week at.

 

Day 12 Luberon > Montgenevre (Alps)

 

Lots seen as we didn't use autoroutes at all, not that there would have been many opportunities for it anyway......

These were all seen in the same village. There were times when the family wondered if we were going to get anywhere, but luckily it was a scenic place so they had a good view while they were waiting.

Important to slow down and be prepared to stop at garages out in the countryside. Sunday a particularly good day as they're going to be closed (Junkman would doubtless have something to say about this).

Proper Concerto.

 

42912913850_96a7c906c8_b.jpg

Apparently a Renault engine in this one.

 

42912912260_c53824160f_b.jpg

1987 Opel Corsa 1.0 by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr

 

Very low-spec. Good that the owner hasn't been tempted to jazz it up with some wheeltrims and hide those styled steels.

1983 Mazda E1600 by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr

 

Whoa! Thought this was a Hiace when I glimpsed the cab, but was extra pleased to find it was one of these. Have seen just one panel van version in France a few years ago. Odd wheels make sense in giving it a low floor, but do they carry two spares? I vaguely recall the odd van in the UK back in the '80s, but they were never common and I don't think we got this dropside version at all.

1983 Talbot Samba Cabriolet by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr

 

Semi-achieved my aim of stumbling across a French car show. Not completely fulfilled, as it'd finished an hour or two before finding it so must stuff had gone, but I had a pleasant few minutes looking at these stragglers. What had I missed? What sort of show only takes place on a summer Sunday morning and finishes by 12.30?

 

44810001131_21d20111d5_b.jpg

1976 ACL Renault Rodeo by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr

 

This was in the same village, maybe it had also been at the show? Rodeos much less common than Meharis, pleasing to see an early one.

Amazing what I managed to find in just one day. This was sitting rather forlornly besides a closed-up garage, but it looked pretty complete and unmolested.

 

30965608018_9c61041246_b.jpg

Finally got to Montgenevre, which is next to the French-Italian border. It was a sunny Sunday and it seemed like a few Italians were visiting town.

Later ones not uncommon, but it was good to find this 1980s example. It was with another Corsa.

Excellent spottage, yes the Volvo 740 was a rare beast in France, I recall having to go to a Volvo truck dealer to get a part for mine back in the day. 

Renault 4 seem to be a lot more common than 2CV on the road nowadays.

Excellent spottage, yes the Volvo 740 was a rare beast in France, I recall having to go to a Volvo truck dealer to get a part for mine back in the day. 

Renault 4 seem to be a lot more common than 2CV on the road nowadays.

 

Ta. Yes, 4s definitely more common than 2CV in my experience.

 

Day 13 Montgenevre > Annecy

 

Living in East Anglia we don't see many mountains, so it was good to see a bit of topography. Frejus tunnel would have been the more direct route to get north of Montgenevre, but we headed a but further into Italy and went on this SS25/D1006 route instead:

Confronted by this as we left town. A bit OTT for watering the flowers, but probably of more use come winter.

Usually see a few of these in France, but not something I'd expected to find in Italy.

This lot were heading up into the mountains. Black one somewhat non-standard.

Tres jolie. My camera does some weird double/multiple exposure thing sometimes, so that's probably the same bird twice.

Unexpected find, but probably a handy thing to have in this area. Was possibly connected with the garage that had this lot......

Thanks to daughter SL for seeing this place, well worth turning back and stopping at. A fair bit of their stock appeared to be Italian imports (the border not being very far away).

Just up the road from our hotel. Saw it drive by later on.

I think the roof panel had been cut off and a piece of tarp clipped-on.

Coming to a town square and selling crepes/coffee near you soon.

 

Don't worry, this is nearly at an end. Final installment to follow.

Great photos as always SL. I must say I don't think I've ever seen a Capri 2.3.

How much was the maroon A112 up for, out of curiosity?  I've always wanted to try one of those but never managed to nab one yet (my Y10 has Autobianchi badging on the tailgate but that doesn't really count), but they seem to be rising in value rather rapidly from what I've seen on Leboncoin.
