On 14th July we went to a birthday party.
It was a meeting of Renault 4’s and other old vehicles in the little town of Scorbé-Clairvaux, which is a few kilometres west of Chatellerault.
We arrived fairly early and there was not much happening so we had a wander round the brocante that was also taking place. There seems to be a brocante at most events, whatever they are.
Lulu enjoyed all the attention from lots of people who had obviously never seen a standard poodle before and she made several new friends.
The Renaults were all out on a ride – a parade through the countryside – and pretty soon they all started to arrive and line up to be admired. I was especially impressed with the one with the birthday cake on top !!
There were lots of other old cars in the parade, all twinkling in the beautiful sunshine.
I thought the flame job on this one was superb.
This seemed to be the “sublime to the ridiculous”.
I thought this would make a very nice camper or ice-cream van.
For those who would like something a little faster in pink !!
And this one’s for Tim and Keith !!
It was one of those essentially French events. Glorious sunshine, good humour, good fun, beautiful old cars, nobody taking it too seriously, any excuse for a jumble sale and no admission fee. A great day out.
