After our visit at The Paul Bracq Ateliers and lunch with Boris Bracq, we said our goodbyes 5 cars headed north and Garry and myself made our way east and returned to Nice.

Both Garry and I returned home just as it started to rain. We were lucky as far as the weather was concerned and are taking wonderful memories back home.

Looking forward now to 2020 :)

Rolf.....I did enjoy these sequence of photos......I have done that trip when living in Montpellier South of France (1988)......I felt like driving the Côte d'Azur ...thanks for sharing.
The Pagoda car seems to be from Confoederatio Helvetica, per CH license plate.

There is an "F" in the blue field just to the left of the "CH" - this indicates French registration.

Yes, Mike,

The car belongs to a very nice Member of our Group that let Garry and myself drive the car during our stay in France.
