Auto Sport Museum Chatillon-Coligny (45)

New to me this museum has not one but TWO Scimitars on display.
The only one in France to have examples of 'our' cars, apart from the Manoir de l"Automobile at Lohéac which has a Sabra.
Photos in European section ... viewtopic.php?f=106&t=31895&start=15
Scroll down.

Nouvel à ma connaissance ce musée propose pas une mais DEUX Scimitar en exposition.
Le seul en France qui détient des exemplaires de 'nos' voitures, à part le Manoir de l'Automobile à Lohéac qui présente une Sabra.

G481MGC must be a very late 1400 (the last CVH is G483RGC so possibly registered by the same garage?) - not on the database Chris :-)

I rather like the Falcon, if you ignore the amazing (non-standard) windscreen.
Strangely, there was one at the museum of Mougins, near here.
They must be more common in France than in England :lol:
