we must carry it with us or we find it not

Carrosserie ......




I had to smile when spotting this car shop in the lovely village of Bonnieux
I know the French like to use the suffix ie for a lot of shops
like Patisserie-cremerie-boulangerie and Pharmacie
But to see this quaint business referred to as a Carrossserie
really made my day.

Oh! and wouldn't it be nice to go zipping around Provence in that
cute cherry-red Volkswagon
If only I could get the hang of driving on the opposite side of the road !!

The green Citroën Méhari, just behind the Beetle, is the one I lust after.
Do you play Slug Bug?

Seeing that cute Volkswagen brings back many happy memories of driving in my brand new champagne colored, sun roof Volkswagen. A Christmas gift from my Husband. It was wrapped in a giant red bow.

A fun shot Dianne. Each vehicle seems to have its own character and, for sure, the VW seems to outshine its companions. However, the first trick would be to get access to it!! :-)

I love this type of VW, I've always wanted to have one. Very nice colour too.
