One of these went through the Historics auction in September; just imagine being sat in there on a long trip as a '70s child.... blissful.

Why did they put two number plates on these?

We're in Nice for a few days. Within the first two tram stops outside the airport I saw a Renault 4 van and a dead looking XM and I thought I'm in for a good time. But I've not seen too much since but here's a few. IMG_20191007_115917.thumb.jpg.51c160eb2e81657333b9572cb28eef59.jpg

Then we took the train down to Cannes this afternoon. 

Definitely not shite, but very Cannes.

Rather annoyingly the whole seafront was fenced off with lots of works going on which is a bit shit when you visit a seaside town. But I'll forgive them because.... 

 

 

Only a Renault fucking Rambler!!!!

So the number is visible with the tail gate down carrying a long load.

Ahhh.... I think I see it now. Cheers. I’m guessing that lower part rolls 90 degrees outward to make the other plate visible.....

A few more from the south of France. A couple of these were in Monaco, see if you can guess which ones. Today we went to Grasse, a bit more down to earth. IMG_20191009_134352.thumb.jpg.6e704f7a3310bae9b4714e707b4b835c.jpg

Mk1 Clio with Grasse Council logo under the mirror. Nice to see they get their moneys worth out of their vehicles. Also saw a Saxo the same.

Mk1 Twingo is the national car of France. If you saw one in the UK you'd take a photo, in France you wouldn't bat an eyelid but I just took this one because it had a nice backdrop.

And, at last, a proper old French car.

Aye a Renault trafic Eriba car. It looks in poor condition and hasn’t been taxed since 2017. No mot since 2016. Not even on Sorn. Looks abandoned on this site but I doubt the owners of the site would allow it to be here if it was. Interesting
