Dordogne Car Club day @ Cresse Hypermarché

Today, Sunday July 7 2013 is a real scorcher,PICT0012 34C in the shade, clear blue sky and perfect for PICT0017cruising around the beautiful Dordogne region in a convertible or motorbike. Here in Lalinde we see a wide range of car and bike clubs cruising by on club outings. 3 weeks ago there were literally 1000's of Vespa's from throughout France meeting in Perigueux for their annual get-to-gether with Lalinde being on one of their club excursions. Today, one of our local supermarkets, Intermarché Hyper in Cresse opened up their carpark for a meeting of most of the Dordogne Car Clubs.  I'm guessing a good 1000 cars were on display.  I was brought up in Titirangi, up in the hills behind Auckland, New Zealand. I'm not sure why, but as a young kid, Titirangi was full of interesting European cars…Simca, Peugoet, Citroen, Panhard, Lancia, Jowett Javelin, Facel Vega, Fiat 500's and 600's, Talbot , Messerschmitt,  BMW Isetta, among the more standard Vauxhall, Ford, Holden, Hillman, Humber, Sunbeam, Rover, Triumph etc. The French cars were more exotic looking and generally very interesting from an engineering perspctive. Having a nice slow walk around the car park today is very much a walk down memory lane. Share some of  the interesting cars on display today
