Hello everyone, at the moment in the south of France there is a lot of exhibition of old cars, as well as sales of car parts :)
And here is a weekend that I spent two weeks ago :) .
I couldn't be everywhere at once, so I went to an antique car parts sale on Saturday, and on Sunday I went to an American car show! :)
So to start, here are the photos of the coin sales that took place in the town of Negrepelisse in the Tarn et Garonne in the south of France :) 

 

I went there with my brother with his Peugeot 205 GTI ( red )  :)

Sebastian, when I was visiting France on work related business I took photos of cars and motorcycles while my fellow travelers took photos of the scenery 😀.  Thank you for posting!

 

You are like me :) , this summer I spent three weeks of vacation in America ! :wub: :wub:  I went to California, Arizona, Nevada and Utah ! it's amazing and beautiful !! :wub: 
And I did a lot of pictures of old and recent cars, and I even went to an American car show at the "bob's big boy" restaurant in north Los Angeles !! It was amazing, I loved it ! :wub:

And I'm happy to share the photos of the exhibitions in France on this forum :) , I like to share what I see here in France :)

Thanks again for posting more vintage car photos from France!

 

Maybe in the pile of swap meet stuff, you'll find some OMNIA magazines for Walt that he is missing in his collection!!

 

Craig

 

Thank you, it's with pleasure :)
A yes it may be possible, because there were many books and manuals :)

Once again you have "made my day" ( and did so for many others I am sure) with your wonderful photos of the cars AND the parts tables as well. It gets our spirits going and makes us smile. THANK YOU so much. SO neat to view different stuff.

Made me laugh to see Craig mention my seeking the OMNIA magazines I lack - about 85% of the ones I have in my collection came from France and England when my great friend Peter Moore of Sussex , England was acting on my behalf for decades looking for them for me. They are a treasure.  A few came from the collection  of author Michael Sedgwick after he passed away and I helped clean out his reference library.

Sebastien - again thank you so much.

Thank you very much it is very nice :)
I am very happy that you like it, because it is with great pleasure that I share these photos with you on this forum.
I'm happy to do small reports from car shows, parts sales or old car rides.
There was a lot of stuff to sell and maybe there was a book like you collection :)
Thanks again to you, I will soon put the photos of the end of this day, at an exhibition of American cars near Toulouse in France :)

One of the really wonderful things about forums like this one courtesy of the AACA, is helping all of us from all around the world to realize how like-minded we are in our interests and daily lives. To see your corner of the world, the old cars you keep and drive for the pleasure of it, the "junk" your people actually cherish and collect? It is all simply priceless!

Getting to know our neighbors, and liking the things they like, brings us all closer together. And being closer together makes us all care more about our neighbors as friends.

 

Thank you for sharing all this! I always enjoy your threads here.

I say it all the time, it is with great pleasure that I share these photos of what I see in France on old cars :)
I'm going tonight (it's 7:15 p.m. in France :) ) to post the rest of the Sunday photos  :) 

Than you :)

Hello, here are the rest of the photos :) . Saturday, after eating, I spent the whole afternoon cleaning my 1978 Dodge Monaco for Sunday  :)

Sebastien, can y'all get Meguiar's products in France and Europe?

 

I toured the Meguiar's factory in Tennessee about 20 years ago. Amazed me that the factory and staff were actually kind of small.

Hello, yes in France you can find maintenance and cleaning products in all automotive stores.
And there are many brands of cleaning products, and the best brand is Meguiar's :)
Meguiar's products are twice as expensive as other brands, but they are great products :)
And on the product it says "made in USA" :)

Most interesting ! Peugeot is a make of car one rarely sees , if ever,  in the USA. I used to see several 203 series cars when I visited England every other year for the summer about 3 decades ago. A close friend in Pulborough, West Sussex had several that he used as semi every day transportation and loved them. His "collector cars" were works in progress for many many years a 1929 Lincoln dual cowl phaeton and a 1931 Chrysler Imperial model CG club sedan. The Chrysler was right hand drive.

The Peugeot 402 is spectacular with its headlamps behind the grille. I have some period photographs of these at the annual Paris salon when new pre war.

I hope one time you may possibly attend an event and there would be a pre WWII Renault Reinastella or Nervastella present, I love those cars................have collected material on them for 40 years. ( not much to be found!!!)

Thanks,

 

I have an older calendar which shows a Peugeot 402 decapotable.  Interesting car!

Hello, I apologize for this late answer, Saturday I worked all day on the Buick and Sunday I went to an old car show (1900 to now) with my Dodge :) (I'll make a new topic for this exhibition :)

Beautiful photo:), I really like the Peugeot 402 with its headlights inside the grille:). Convertible models are rarer, we see more sport cut models :)

Your friend in England had a nice car collection :)
A friend of mine just bought a 1926 Chrysler, it is magnificent! :)
Here in France, we regularly see Peugeot 203s in exhibitions (4-door, convertible, wagon, etc.), and I find it very beautiful :)

During this weekend , at the parts sale , there were lots of old advertisements for sale , I could not look at all of them because there were a lot of them , and I saw an advertisement for Renault Novaquatre , but this is not a model you said :)
