Dans le rétro

Caught last week in the (dirty) rear view mirror on Avenue de Paris. I have no clue what it is...

Vu dans le rétro (sale) la semaine dernière, sur l'avenue de Paris. Je n'ai aucune idée de ce que c'est...

Whatever it is, it's bright and colorful and moves!! Great shot, Ciel, even in a dirty rear view mirror! Have a great week!

Autin Healey? James Bond car? I'm sure I couldn't afford it! Cute, though. I hope you were stopped when you took this photo! :)

Interesting looking car. And the dirt adds a layer without post processing by you:-)

Sorry, Ciel, I can't help you. I don't know much about cars.

About the bin in the middle of the photo . . . I read once that the weavers of those gorgeous Persian rugs intentionally throw one knot, because only Allah is perfect. Having the trashcan in the middle of the photo is my thrown knot.

That would be a fun ride.

Possibly a bug eyed Sprite? Whatever it is, it looks cool.

Its a Triumph maybe a TR2 or 3, built by the Triumph motor co. which became part of BMC British Motor Company which in turn became British Leyland. The engine was originally used in a tractor. My friend had one many years ago.

Bonjour, Ciel! Hope your week is beginning well.

Re your question on Ocala: Yes, Angus as in beef. Lots of beef cattle here also. One might think this was the wild West! :)

A troglodyte is a bird, an ape, an uncouth person and a cave house in France. One learns something new everyday. haha!!

Good reflection, Ciel, love it and its car ;-)

Stuart said...

Perfect framing...both visually and conceptually. I would agree that it's probably a TR 2 or 3.
