Vous devez me dire ce qui est elle




Récemment j'ai rendu visite à un vieil ami qui m'a dit qu'on lui avait envoyé quelques photos très intéressantes. Les voici ! Ils ont été pris en 2004. Sur le week-end je vais voir la vraie chose qu'il a maintenant achetée. Elle a été livrée à Adelaïde, de Melbourne, sur un camion. Vous devez me dire ce qui est elle, maintenant.
Recently I visited an old friend who told me that he had been sent some very interesting photos. Here they are, they were taken in 2004.
On the week-end I will return to see the real thing. He bought it and transported it to Adelaide on a truck. Your job is to tell me what it is !

Comme Olivier, je pense à une Cadillac.

It is indeed an absolutely immaculate Caddy!
It looks like a late 1920's V8 "Town Sedan" (the V16 had a longer hood).
Pure sex, monsieur.
Sigh …

Is that right - a Cadillac? I blew up the middle image to look at the logo on the hood but I did not recognise it.

Whatever make/model it is, it have been very lovingly restored and is a feast for the eyes.

I wonder how comfortable it is for the bottom as it chuggs along. Although, judging from the immaculat tyres, it has not been out of its "home" for some little time.

Um, it is a lovely old green car, very clean....

M.Benaut said...

Yep, C'est vrai.
Je crois que c'est de l'année 1929. Je saurai plus après le week-end.
Elle roule bien encore, il m'a dit; Olivier.
J'imagine qu'il y en a très peu dans le Drôme ?
Dive, like you, I am dying to see the moteur.
Julie, I did what you did, alas, with the same results.
Hi Maria, you made four totally correct observations. Perhaps you should have the prize !

CaBaCuRl said...

Yep, abba-solutely right, Jules, I 100% agree with you.

claude said...

Cadillac ou pas Cadillac, cette vieille voiture encore jeune est très belle. J'adore les vieilles voitures !

M.Benaut, What a beautiful auto... my rough guess is that it is a 1927 Cadillac and if you go to...

... you will see one that looks incredibly similar!!

M.Benaut said...

Das ist, unglaublich mein Herr.
Sie haben sehr gute Arbeit gebildet.

I thought it may have been a 1929 model, however, the example you have shown us seems to be the exact same vehicle. Mighty fine work !!

Jilly said...

Well I had to click to find out what it is. What a fabulous car. Goodness, it's even older than me!

Marie said...

Wow elle est trop belle !

Looks like an old car?

Does it have WiFi , Sat Nav and a drinks cooler ?

Brings back memories - my father used to work on old vintage cars - making hoods especially

Will it meet with today's regulations re carbon emissions ?? I doubt it ..
