    Now that is patina!! There are quite a few 4CV YouTube videos there. Thanks for the link.

    Love that shed floor. Shearers shed or older factory?
    Polished up with a few polished old french cars would be cool.

    An old 1940s country workshop. I'll be moving her into my shed in Ballarat, which is 1950s. Seems appropriate.

    My 1950 4CV (R1062) in a party frock for the Mille Miglia display at Perth's Italian Car Day on 5 November. The second photo is Jean Redele finishing first in class in the 1954 event in a factory ('usines') R1063.

    For those who don't know, the car numbers reflect the starting time.

    I'm hoping for a good day!

    Cheers

    Here we are at the Italian Car Day, with a C-type Jaguar for company. They moved the Jag later, I think because the 4CV was so spectacular and detracted from the planned effect of the C-type. They had to put it in the centre of the display. ROFL

    Seriously, all credit to the Rotary club for such a great Italian Car Day here in Perth. There was a wonderful range of cars that are rarely seen, not least speaking of some lovely Lancias, Alfa Romeos and Fiats and a (now) all too rare Alfasud.

    I was the sole flier of the French Flag. I should have taken one, but will be better prepared if there is another such event.

    Nice one John. It sure had a lot of questions. First was why on a Italian car day, till it was explained the Milli Miglia connection. And it really looked the part.

    Ray
    And a big thank you to Ray and his son for (a) suggesting putting numbers on the car, (b) making them so authentically and (c) fitting them so well!

    And the "ACQUA" label from the Redele car.....

    Great day. I will offer to write them a short explanation of the Mille Miglia next time, so at least people know what it was!

    Johnno,
    The busiest bloke at the start of the Mille Miglia would have been the free hand signwriter doing the start numbering minutes before the off !

    Interesting, isn't it. We reckoned the Renault team gave the apprentice a 2" brush and a pot of white paint. Moss' MB 722 was a tad more professional!!

    The car (4CV) looks great John! Unfortunately I wasn't able to make it down....

    Ah sorry, the text didn't attach. I'm collecting bits for my 4cv restoration. Hopefully the rest of the car arrives next weekend.

    You might need a bit of stuff for the front!! Good to see another 4CV heading for restoration and thanks for posting.

    I do like the sofa, for comfortable sitting and contemplating during the job!

    Dauphine rear end with spider wheels I see. Do you have the 9" gear for the front end? Makes a big difference to braking.

    Cheers
