Desolate in Descartes!

As we suspected, the inclement weather continues but undaunted we ventured out to see the Panhard meeting at Descartes. There was nothing much happening, as you'll see from the photographs, but then again we were surprised to see any cars at all - especially these old girls - out on such a  wet day.

The rain-soaked tarmac was the perfect backdrop for all the rainbow patterns created by oil leaks... and there were plenty of them!

We didn't realise there were so many models, including a couple of more sporty ones..

And, of course, a tractor...

The figure in the background to the right on the following photo came and introduced himself as a reporter from La Nouvelle Republique.

It will be interesting to read his copy online because if they are expecting a full length feature on the event, either they are in for a disappointment or he'll have certainly earned his money!!

All those lovely old cars - presumably the owners are having a long lunch somewhere warm and dry? That vast semi-abandoned mill or whatever is a good background on a miserable day. Bravo for braving the weather! P.

Love the title.... Sounds like a pen name.

Poured down here too!

P - Were we brave or foolish?!!

Gaynor, I might consider adopting a pen name if the weather doesn't improve. It's a toss up between 'Desolate in Descartes' or 'Brassed Off in Braye'! What do you think?

I am amazed there are so many old cars out in this weather. It really been horrible and it is causing us many problems. Take care Diane
