DAF

It had been years since I'd seen a DAF! Though we still see DAF lorries, cars are now rare!

Ca faisait des années que j'avais vu une DAF !

This is the first I've ever heard of DAF cars and trucks.

Oh, I have seen these once in a while on the streets of KL ...

Jack said...

Well, Ciel, you are way ahead of me. Not only have I not seen a DAF car, I have never heard of them!

What a cute little car. I had never heard of it, either, so I looked it up on Google. I'm always learning new things this way. Someone mentions it on a blog, and I'm very curious, so I have to check it out.
It was very interesting to find out about this little Dutch car.

Interesting I have seen pictures of these cars years ago but never knew their name or origin. Cute.

I don't think I've ever seen one of these before. I really enjoy unusual cars and this fits the bill, thanks for sharing. It's in really good shape, obviously well cared for.

Bob Crowe said...

Yes, I dimly remember these. I wondered why they didn't spell it DAFT.

Randy said...

Never heard of it but I would sure love one in red!

Like the others I hadn't heard of it either. It reminds me of the Fiat 500. Or one of those early 60s Renault. The leaf on the hood is perfectly placed.

I think Daf was bought by Volvo. They were automatic with an unusual gaerbox.

un collector bien conservé

ALAIN said...

"I WANDER'D lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze."
William Wordsworth.

Hahaha... it's almost inconceivable that people don't know this cutie. I grew up with the Daf, of course, although our family never had one. Haven't seen one in a while either, but in Bucharest I saw a few vintage Ford Anglias.

It is adorable! Perfect for finding parking places in small spots.

Like those above, I had never heard of DAF. Maybe that is part of why their a not many of their vehicles around.

joo said...

I have to confess that I've probably never seen them before:)
Love the light in your photo!

Lowell said...

Thanks for the link, Ciel! I had not heard of DAF trucks or cars. This looks much like a Renault or Opel from the 50s.

Thérèse said...

Etant nulle en connaissance cote voitures c'est une premiere pour moi...

PerthDailyPhoto said...

Now that's a very cute little 'retro' car Ciel, well done to spot such a rare find!

JM said...

Cooool! :-)

Malyss said...

ça ne nous rajeunit pas! j'aimais bien les voitures a cette epoque, elles avaient toutes une personnalité différente..

VP said...

There was a time, about thirty years ago, that these cars weren't unusual here.

Halcyon said...

Je me demande si je n’ai jamais vu une de-celles-la. Elle me rappel d’un Trabi ! :)

Sharon said...

That is a cool car! I would love to have one, it would be perfect for our narrow roads.
