CLASSIC CAR PARADE


When you live in a pedestrian street, you quickly pick up noises that don't belong. This morning, already before 7am, there was something going on besides the morning street cleaning van, more noise than usual on  Saturday. 

A quick peek confirmed what I have read about but forgotten.  The two day Exposition de voitures anciennes & Concours d'elegance is on this weekend. 
personally I am not that much into cars, new or old, but it is a great idea to drive some traffic into jarnac. the streets all day were bustling and we enjoyed looking at the different vintage cars and bikes. 

Here are some pictures:

Wonderful photos. Always fun to
see the oldies, thanks.

By the way, there's an AP release
which I've seen in a couple of
papers recently which you and
Victoria might find interesting.
Easiest thing to do is probably
Google: Is your problem really
gluten?

Our local market now has the entire
side of one long aisle devoted to
gluten free products, snacks.
Lentil chips look interesting.

A parade of vintage cars is definitely a good way to start your morning! Those classic cars really are a sight to behold. The crowd must be very pleased to see these vehicles again on the road. All of them exude the vintage vibe. They look beautiful, stylish, and amazing!

Fascinating, isn’t it? I mean, how much these car models all transformed as time and technology progressed. From the physique down to the engine – just imagine. Vintage cars were gas guzzlers, and now new car models have gas-saving features that most car owners are rooting for.
