What is the sound of one piston slapping?
What is the sound of one piston slapping?

I was on vacation in France and currently in some town, which seemed as touristic as sleepy and had some free time because, well, vacation.

So I grabbed my phone cam (which is bunk, as I figured out) and walked open-eyed through the streets, hoping to get some french beauty before the lens.

First, I came across a C4 Cactus, the first time for me to see one in the wild, and I really like its presence, and how it offers a higher seating position and a comfortabler entry as the Merc B-Class or the VW Golf Sportsvan without being too conservative and outstanding looks without being a wannabe 4x4.

Then, I saw this sign and decided to look closer.

This Renault Traffic 4x4 wasn't the freshest, but as it turned out it was for sale: 1500 Euros, anyone? The significant rustholes seemed to have weakened the poor Truck. Nice paint scheme, nevertheless.

As I continued walking over the place on grass which had found its way through the cobbles, I spotted something in a garage on the opposite site...

It happened to be a 2CV. Cliche completed, I'd say. Maybe the owner would like to sell? Would be a great project, as It seemed to be complete (though I didn't get to see more than you do now) and it stood dry all the time.

This being my first post here, I need to introduce me to all of Oppo: I'm Smultron (love that word, swedish for forest strawberries) and I'm looking forward to share notable cars I see on the streets, at events or on sale sites with you. And various other stuff. When it comes to cars, I don't have real preferences, but I always liked Lancias for their oddball image and often fascinating tecnical and visual approaches. And being hit by a Hyundai seems like a very sad death to me.
