la voiture classique


I found this 1940s era Plymouth in a parking lot area near our house.  There are many, many restored American cars here... as well as European cars of course.  This vintage beauty is about the same age as me.  If only I looked so good.

  1. Stuart, that is so funny! I nearly posted a photo last night of a Citroën Traction Avant with virtually the same text (the age bit anyway). I think I'll go ahead tonight and post it after all!

    1. To be honest, I'd rather have a Traction Avant. Can't wait to see your shot.

  3. In my experience (as a serial TA owner in France) the term voiture classique is rarely used and barely understood in France. A French person would say une voiture de collection (whether or not the car has a carte grise collection or a carte grise normale) or une voiture ancienne. If you do get a TA, make sure you join La Traction Universelle. Talk to Olivier de Serre or us if you want to know more.

  4. @Stuart and Susan: Coming up! You do realise, of course, whose TA it is!
