Assumption Day at Lesigny


As is now our custom, last Thursday we joined the Assumption Day drive at Lésigny. This is held in conjunction with the Lésigny brocante, and is a fun day out for anyone who appreciates a drive in the country in old cars, and a random picnic.

This year we drove through a number of the smaller villages of the south Touraine, stopping for a morning drink at la Celle Guenand.


I've never seen one of these before - a 1965 UMAP, based on a 2CV

You can't beat class

This one's for Leon

Gathered for a mid morning drink

4CV - literally 4 horsepower.

On our return we picnicked, looked at all (about 400) shiny and no so shiny cars on parade, chatted with aquaintances old and new, and generally had a convivial time. If you have a pre-75 car (or a new GT car) why not join us next year?

Ahhhhhh... the UMAP.... one of the ugliest 2CV conversions out...
the front end draws inspiration from the Daimler Dart...
the back end from someone standing on the clay model in a size 10 wellie...
lovely coming towards you... pigs-ear from the rear!
And, like the Bijou... too heavy for the original engine!
