A very respectable speed for a small car of the 1920s!

 

 

 

 

I for one enjoy seeing cars, tours, and activities, from around the world. You always do a fine job sharing your photos and I enjoy seeing them.

 

Yes it is a really acceptable speed (in top speed)
It's 38 / 40  mph ;) 

 

thank you very much, i will put pictures of the next ride i do.
Thank you :)

Good to see some French Car culture, Merci'

Thank you very much Ed Luddy :) , Paris is beautiful too, there are a lot of very pretty old buildings as well as a lot of things visited (eiffel tower (the most famous ;) ), ...) 
On the other hand in Paris there are a lot of people, and it's difficult to get around by car (there are a lot of traffic jams and everyone honks :D )
Your Pontiac in photos is magnificent, I really love it :wub: :wub: , it makes you want to have a good road trip with it :)

That Simca Vedette looks great! I think they had a small version of the Ford Flathead V8.

 

Thank you Andrew46Coupe ;) , this one was a Simca Chambord, and indeed it is equipped with the small Ford V8 ;)

Sebastien- do local police or authorities give you any merde over having the roof lights on your patrol car? That can be touchy here in the States on a privately owned ex-police car or other emergency vehicle.

 

Keep the pictures coming. I think everyone here enjoys them. Car people are car people, all over the world.👍

The only time I have visited Paris I was too young to drive (about the middle of the last century 😁).  More recently my wife and I have visited Europe several times and I have driven in Rome, Athens and Dublin with the largest French city being Marseille.  We prefer to stay out of large cities and stay in b&b's or boutique hotels.  We like to meet the local people.  We usually put about 5000 kilometres on our rented cars in about three weeks.

I really enjoyed your pictures.  Gratifying to see car culture alive and well across the globe.  Please continue to share events with us. 🙂

Thank you rocketraider :) , yes in France I have permission to have the dodge equipped with the police because it is an old car, because the car is not a French police car, because the flashing light has red color....
On the other hand, it is forbidden to turn on the flashing lights or the siren on the public highway.
I can turn on the flashing lights only on private land (house, old car exhibition, ...) otherwise I have a very large fine.

And in case a police officer does not agree, I bought the "tarpaulin" that we put on the flashing light with "Out of Service" written on it, but so far I have not had need to put it ;) 
When I see the police they all laugh and say hello :) , and a lot of people like it :) .  
I feel like I'm in the movie "dukes of hazzard"! :)

A yes I see that you have made a lot of trips :) 
If you have been in Marseille, I also advise you to visit the Côte d'Azur by going up by St Tropez, Cannes, nice, monaco ;) 
But it's also very pretty when you go into the countryside and have descended towards Montpellier, ...
last week I did a little road trip with the Dodge Monaco from Montauban to Narbonne plage :)

Yes I must add, I love the patrol car as well.

 

Thank you very much TAKerry :) , I am very happy to have this Dodge Monaco :) 
The previous owner who had it imported from Texas told me that he only had 2 Dodge Monaco 1978 in France and 5 in Europe.
There is few of it ;)

We have travelled the entire French Mediterranean coast from Spain to Monaco.  Very beautiful country! 👍

Then we left at 11 p.m. and we arrived at the house at 1:30 in the night :D 
In all in all days (the old car ride and Narbonne), the Dodge did more than 500 km ( 320 mile ) , and without any problem :)
