    Harley Davidson has its own brand of Gaspers.
    An interesting taste combination of sump oil and chrome.

    Default Mmm...

    Strange, never heard of anything similar (apart from the H-D's).
    The cynic in me is wondering whether this is some advertising loophole about to be exploited...

    Well, seeing as (I'm told...) anything that implies 'mild' or anything like that on a cigarette packet is about to be banned in the European Union...

    And certain Grand Prix cars carry a cigarette brand name that is based on that word...

    You could be right!





    Sometimes it pays to be a cynic!

    Heh, and Citroën actually declared itself to be PSA's discount arm.

    I'd hazard a guess, but I don't think it's a modern advertising push. The Renault symbol is alittle on the outdated side.

    Did Pug or Cit ever have a cognac in thier own brand? I have seen a Renault cognac bottle

    If the world wasn't so politically correct these days, one of those boxes would look good sitting on the dash at the next Grand Display

    "poojoh",

    Gauloises = "Gawlwah". I believe the s's are silent.

    Yep, you can buy it here no problem.



    It's about $75 a bottle on the ships around here, $65 in Estonia.

    That Cognac is near as pricy as some LHM I've seen. Wonder which one tastes better?

    Just asked because the Renault cognac looks very nice. Whats the exchange rate? I'd be happy to pay excess alcohol duty if it were a good price. Keep in touch.
    Have fun,

    Very classy indeed that Renault cognac. A nice accompaniment to a French car....
