Time is flying again :roll:
Rather than an exhaustive coverage of all the cars that attended the April meeting in Vincennes,
here is a 'short list' but in larger dimensions :mrgreen:
Cheers,
Fred

Wow ... it's been a long time since I last attended the meeting in Vincennes - busy with other things -

Last week-end was a 'special event' since we had in France the so-called 'week-end du patrimoine' - 2 days dedicated to the patrimony
with all sorts of places open to public when they are normally closed all year 8)
Rather than discovering some unusual reclose place in Paris, I joined other members of the club to exhibit our cars ...
although there were a majority of french cars, a few english and italians managed to sneek in ... as well as a large contingent of Jeeps & GMCs :lol:

Here goes a series of pics to commemorate this event ...

** Meeting from November 1st 2015 **

This edition was surprisingly warm and sunny for a November ... hence about 400 vehicles fighting to get a spot before the castle :shock:
I had arrived early - about 09:00 am - and was amongst the first on stage, ideal to capture the incoming vehicles as they were being filtered at the entrance of the reserved area. I have selected a short list of vehicles out of the 500 pics taken yesterday ... hoping to give you an idea of the variety of cars that took part in the noggin this month :wink:

It was actually pretty quiet around 09:00/09:30

Image

Image

Image

But the crowd kept growing as more and more vehicles & visitors were gathering 8)

There were no Scimitars unfortunately ... but two scimitarists anyway: Fred Hermand in his Alfa Romeo and myself with The Dark Thing

There were also a dozen Austin Healeys belonging to the french Healey Club

This Bong Bug certainly drew a lot of attention ... very few people had a clue of what it was from what I could hear :lol:

Thanks Fred(s), looks like a good day out.
The Bond Bug is very nearly a Reliant and I love the Iso (Rivolta?)

That was a great day indeed, brilliant weather and superb cars, just too many people by 11:00 :lol: Lots of visitors since this place is close to a park, and albeit the peak of pollution that we had on the city ... parisians took kids out & the baby trolleys, rushed for their morning jog or cycling in the park.
The Bug was a big attraction ... someone - the owner maybe - commented that "It is much more stable than the Reliant version" :roll:
The Iso Rivolta was beautiful indeed and quite rare in shows, this one often comes to Vincennes so I'll take more detail pics next time :mrgreen:
