The things you find whilst on Holiday

Because car spotters are always in spotting mode, right...

I wanted to start this as a simple "I found these whilst on holiday" post but looking through my photos, I thought that really I should/could share a little more than that, I'm firstly in the Paris and Loire Region, taking the children to Disneyland and enjoying a family break (the Disneyland cars are a post in themselves, which I'll save for another day) and then later in the year, we are down in Toulouse area, the year is 2012, at a guess most of these cars will now be long gone, but the memories live on.

So as I said earlier and making the post something a little more, so later in the year we went southbound towards Toulouse, this was our major holiday. Our break in Paris was only for a few days, this time we are away for the week, let the spotting commence.

  • I would love to save a car in this condition. It's such a shame to see so many cool cars in such bad condition, but at least they are still being enjoyed

    • If it helps keeping older cars on the road I’m all for it, i do feel sad when they’ve rotted so much nothing is salvageable as that seems just wasteful

    • Same Usually their is nothing wrong with them before they are abandoned, apart from somebody wants a newer car
