A model looking alike your Vedette but fitted with the Aronde 4 cylinder was named Ariane or Ariane 4. Very convenient for large families or parisian taxis.
Did you have other french cars in period?
Bonjour Gerard, no never had French cars...however I did have the use of a Renault 10 for a several months once...and later did and engine overhaul on a similar car (gotta love the ease of fixing wet sleeve engines).

The Aronde Pilote is Geoff Rose, an ex-Navy man I got to know through working for La Defense myself :-)

I wanted to put some photos of the car up but now that Botophucket has decided to hold people to ransom for 3rd party hosting...well...I refuse to go chasing another hosting program that could also perform the same price gouging trick. So...I only post images on websites that will allow uploads.

Bon Chance! Mick

You should be able to upload here as far as I am aware.

Up to 6 files per post.

Go for the "Reply" option and then, most likely, you'll need to scroll down a little to get to the "Additional Options" and then the "Manage Attachments" option.

Bonjour et merci beaucoup, Mike! I dont like the ransom system many so called modern sites put on us.
If you like the wet sleeves system may be you noticed that Renault use to fit paper seals tricky to replace while others used Orings.
The Renault 10 was not really the weapon on a windy road though
You can tell Geoff rose he has some new fans on another continent by now!
Bonne journée! Gérard.
