Without wishing to hijack such an established thread, linking back to the classics on the Transporter Bridge...it is indeed an impressive bit of engineering
...here's yours truly using it today. Our mode of transport was however a not so impressive bit of engineering , being a Citroen Picasso...

Good friend giving his 1917 Ford Model T speedster a run for the first time in 6 years. Was struggling with the controls as it had been so long since he last used it. It was no slouch, and picked up quite a turn of speed.

I attended the now traditional meeting on Sunday morning in Place Vauban in Paris.

Small attendance that time (probably because of the nice sunshine) But there were a few interesting cars

Having lost the keys for my P6 V8 and had to get a replacement ignition / steering lock I wanted to get a spare key cut before I lost that as well. The Timpsons just down the road couldn't do it but at least I got to see this TR6.

on the way to last week LE Mans 24h, I passed this magnificent and so rare to see being driven Ferrari Daytona.

It turned out we were sharing the same "Parking Blanc" I chatted briefly with the owner and upon taking a picture of the dashboard, he invited me to sit down in it.

At the 120th anniversary of the first uphill race in Chanteloup les Vignes, I saw this pretty rare Toyota 2000 GT.

Really a beautiful car
