A.R.T.S. 70 (Picture-heavy)

Post by Oldconn » Mon Mar 27, 2017 11:53 am

Alors, c'est le Printemps en Haute Saône, le premier jour longue étant célèbré à Port-sur-Saône par le nouvel groupe "Auto-Retro Terres de Saône" - A.R.T.S.70.
Spring has arrived in Haute-Saône, the first of the long days being celebrated at Port-sur-Saone by the first meeting of a new group who are called "Auto-Retro-Terres de Saone - A.R.T.S. 70.
C'est un groupe éclectic qui accueillera tous qui roule,deux ou quatre roues, sans ou avec moteur, dans un ambience conviviale. Une bonne trentaine de voitures et motos fut rangés sur l'ancien stade de sport,baigné de soleil, et le café,croissants et la biére étaient également les bienvenues!
It's an eclectic group who make welcome anything which rolls,two or four-wheeled,motorised or not, in an informal friendly atmosphere. A good thirty cars and bikes lined up on the tarmac of the old communal stadium, bathed in sunshine, and the coffee croissants and beer were equally welcome!
Voici, donc, un mèli-mèlo des voitures les plus intéressantes:
So here is a selection of the most interesting cars:

Image

CANDY (of course!) out for the first time after cleaning off the Winter crud
Image

A nice pair of Peugeots , 404 and 504.
Image

The best variant of the 504 range,in my opinion, a Cabriolet V6!
Image

Alovely piece of glassfibre!
Image

A pretty little Simca
Image

A Renault "Woody" - is this a true shooting-brake?
Image

A basic Escort enjoying a new lease of life -purchased for 250€ from a scrapyard!
Image

A nice example of "the last of the Alpines" -the new one has just been launched at Paris & Geneva.
Image

The competitor to the SS1 - one of two present.
Image

Under the hood of a splendid Spitfire 1500.
Image

One for Chris Johnson!
Image

And this week's puzzle pic: NAME THAT CAR?
Image

That's all,folks!

The perspex side panels on the Spitfire are an interesting idea :D

The whole car was full of interesting ideas. Those perspex panels were cut and heat-moulded from a shower cabinet!

Too quick for me, I was still ogling the Spitfire ...

The Porsche is nice but hasn't enough cylinders.
The Alpine is the victim of 'improvements' by Renault to update the A310, rather sad.
The Simca is not that little, and has a V8 engine - on the other hand they did make it as an Ariane with a 4 cylinder, must have been really sporty :lol:
The Matra is a terrific car, it also has a Simca 4 cylinder engine, but much more recent - and the car is somewhat lighter :wink:
I agree about the 504 cabrio, I've never driven a V6 version but the basic car is great.
And Candy is looking splendid.
Well done Ian, thanks for posting.
