Early March sees the beginning of the season of outings and events for the classic car club that we belong to. These photos are from the annual swap meet (Fr. bourse) at Noyers sur Cher (just across the river from Saint Aignan). An aperitif for members who are attending is being prepared. The golden squares in the plastic box above are either goats cheese puff pastries or potato cakes. Below, the new president of our chapter of La Traction Universelle, Jean-Marc, cuts up a savoury bread. The drinks include some sparkling wine, some homegrown homemade pear juice and a rosé from Joel Delaunay. He is a winemaker from Pouillé, not far away from where this meet was taking place, and a lot of the club members buy wine from him.
So what is it that is so unusual about this scene?
