As you know I was a bit early at La Guillardiere on Saturday morning ... 8:30 instead of 14:00 :oops: :lol:
This gave me plenty of time walking around the village and harvesting lots of photos as usual,
then I went for a drive across the Monts du Beaujolais ... it was simply superb a weather for driving
and each time I stopped on the roadside or in a village Purple was drawing all the focus ...
In just one spot I spent 15' talking to a mountainbiker - he seemed also pretty happy to have a break :lol: -
and then to the three passengers of a Renault 9 convertible - also a rare sight these days -

Here a couple more pics of Purple in the wild, the location is just below Oingt ...





now: Scimitar SE5 ('71), Scimitar SE6a ('79), Scimitar SST 1800Ti ('90), Ford Anglia LHD ('61),Ford Consul Capri LHD ('61), TVR Chimaera 400 ('96), Caterham SV ('10), Lexus IS200 ('04)
past: Mitsubishi Celeste ('77), Alfetta Quadrifoglio ('85), Nissan Maxima ('95)
