All you need to go to work ...

This ad for the notorious Le Bon Coin (site for second-hand sales in France) has been put up at the bus stop this morning.
It looks like someone finally understands that a classic car can be used as a daily driver to go to work (and that a
mechanics' job could then become handy :lol: )

An alarmclock, a lemon-squeezer, a Honda S800 (circa 1957) and a CDI. Guess which is the hardest to find in France?

I would imagine a "a Honda S800 (circa 1957) " is pretty hard to find everywhere! :lol:

Hmm, I'm not very good on dates but I would tend to agree :wink:

Brilliant ad, anyway, I don't think eBay would even understand it :roll:

Was that a typo? Should it have been 1967?..... Anyway, the hardest thing to find in France nowadays is a CDI - a permanent contract of employment!
