    Street scenes from France anyone?

    Does anyone have any street scenes or the like from France or Paris? I have found a few sites on the net but they arent really that great. Does anyone know of any other places to see great street scenes(doesnt have to be with any cars on it either)?
    I would have thought the Net would have had heaps?

    I could be wrong Daniel, but I thought you have been to Paris - maybe you could raid your photo collection?

    I've got some from my Nana's village - Limuei (sp?) which is down near Bordeaux. Pretty street scene taken from a 2nd story window. I'll put it up on the internet tomorrow.

Someone, I once wrote, in the bowels of Peugeot understands handling and how a chassis should feel." - Jeremy Clarkson

    I'll be going for a regional France trip next year, but that probably won't help you much ... wanted to hire a 206GTi from Peugeot but they won't do it

    vite,
    Interesting - none of the companies (Peugeot Renault or Citroen) will lease their performance cars...

    If you don't mind the brand you lease I'd go for Renault - they're cheaper. From memory a Clio 1.4 is 900 for 17 days. <a href="http://www.renault-eurodrive.com" target="_blank">http://www.renault-eurodrive.com</a> is their website anyway I leased a Scenic 1.9 dCi which was a fantastic touring car for 3 of us

    Citroen have the Xsara 1.6 available for lease but not the Xsara 2.0L which is lots of fun I hear!

    Oh I envy you having a wife that crazy, gibgib...

    Here's a couple for you...

    A couple of American girls I took for a drive one day...

    <img src="http://www.austarmetro.com.au/~raybell/avignon.JPG" alt=" - " />

    We went through Avignon... there's a McDonalds just the other side of this roundabout... it had a French poster with the old 'twoallbeefpatties...' thing on it...

    Not often you see a 203 and a 204 side by side...

    <img src="http://www.austarmetro.com.au/~raybell/lepont.JPG" alt=" - " />

    At Avignon, apparently, there is a 'pont'... this is sur le pont at Avignon.

    Of course, there is a little more here...

    I think it would be well worth the effort to repair the rear end...

    Nice?

    Did I mention the wreckers'?

    Here you go...

    Now that is sad! Even sadder is the fact that the engine went to Simsmetal.
