Le tacot du Boeuf à la Mode

Old car Versailles Boeuf à la mode
Seen last week on the queen's boulevard. Dunno what it is... Update: thanks to the comments, VDP now knows that this is a Juva 4! The restaurant that owns it was photographed here!

Vu la semaine dernière boulevard de la reine. VDP ne sait pas ce que c'est. Mise à jour : grâce aux commentaires, VDP sait maintenant qu'il s'agit d'une Juvaquatre ! Merci les amis ! Le resto, lui, avait été photographié ici !

Whoever owns it keeps it in great shape!

It's a lovely vehicle. I'd guess it's from the 1930s as it looks a lot like my first car, a 1937 Chevy.

I don't quite understand why it is parked facing a different direction than the cars behind it. Maybe it's a Versailles thing? :)

They didn't put a name on it but if it has a hole for a crank so it is probably 1940s or so. It would be fun to drive around your streets I expect.

It's in better shape than my late model car.

It's a cool looking little car. Not for me though. MB

Very retro looking, your last photo probably puts it back into its original era too!

@ Lowell: this is the only one parked in the right direction on that side of the road!

Wouldn't it be fun to drive around Versailles in!

Hi Ciel: Re your not-knowing about bedliners: Many pickup truck drivers want to protect the bed of the truck so they buy special rubber/plastic bedliners, but there is a spray which can be used to put a protective coat on the bed of the truck.

BTW, this stupid spell-correction thing kept changing "bedliner" to "berliner." Thought you'd appreciate that!

Would love to 'turn the key' and tool around in this for the day.

I'd drive that every day of the week, it's retro cool.

a wonderful car!

i see cars parked both directions on a street, here that could give a person a ticket.

Loree said...

That's one cute car.

RedPat said...

Such fun! I can see some elegant woman getting out of it in the 30s.

Ciel: Re the parking position: There is always, always, some clown who doesn't get the word! :)
