My French Heaven, ce n’est pas que des recettes et des châteaux. Une part de l’art de vivre à la Française est définie par nos voitures et notre passion de l’automobile. Alors aujourd’hui, place à l’automobile Française dans tout ce qu’elle a (ou plutôt AVAIT) de plus beau. Voici l’Alpine Renault A110, souvent appelée “Berlinette” de mon neveu Geoffrey. Elle est de 1968 et lui donne encore bien du plaisir :0)
Désolé mesdames, de temps en temps je retombe en enfance… et c’est souvent la faute à Geoffrey!
My French Heaven is not just about cooking, châteaux and Farmers’ Markets; it is about everything that I think makes this country special. It is therefore highly subjective and also includes naps, people speaking their minds and yes, CARS. One little car has become iconic in this country. It was the first car to ever win the Rally World Cup in 1973. It was also our official highway patrol car in the 60s and 70s. I took these pictures this afternoon in the courtyard. This little beauty belongs to my Nephew Geoffrey and is from 1968. He loves her and she loves him back :0)

it’s a car… It’s amazing… It’s beautiful… It’s french… It’s a Renault.
It’s a boite à sardine 🙂
Very nice. 🙂 Bet it’s great to drive.
It’s great to drive but much to low for me 🙂 Every time i’ve made it inside, I couldn’t get out 🙂
🙂 then it would fit me!
That is GORGEOUS! I would buy that baby in a heart beat!
I bet you’d look great in it 🙂
Why do cars have to be so ugly, nowadays? Except for mine, of course. 🙂
What kind of car do you drive?
A lurid green Fiat Qubo. 🙂
She is beautiful!
Color me GONE! Nice pics.
Very easy to see why it would become an icon, even if it didn’t win a rally championship. Great design.
Car design is a lost art I think…
Beautiful! Even us girls like a beautiful classic car ! 🙂
Only cool girls do! So I’m not surprised 😉
First car that I think I have fallen in love with ….
Really? That is so cool!
It’s okay. All boys like their toys.
L’artiglieria pesante!!!!! i would dare to say…! just love the old gorgeous cars…!
My dream car is a Jaguar XK 120… Someday maybe 🙂
…not bad at all::) What about 718 W/RS
Now that’s a true piece of art! Same period I think. It’s so sad now that all modern cars look the same…
indeed! all the cars look the same…people just look the same…Wish I could turn back time::)!
Me too!! We’d wear cool outfits, great hats and drive sexy cars… 😉
Regarding the wardrobe and the personal style: questions that need a LOOOT of space….and certain cars are much more than sexy cars, we both know it…:)
oh…it was just because we talk about dreams…
Really beautiful. The ’60’s produced some gorgeous sensual cars designed by artists rather than computers. I had a 1969 Alfa Romeo round-tail spider in mint, showroom condition. Sold it in 1981 for the downpayment on my first home. Stupid!
My Nephew is crazy about Alfa Romeos. He’s had several. His next one will be a red spider…
I’ve had 4 myself at different times. But they are very demanding and expensive mistresses.
That is one sweet ride! :0)
