a 1/4 nutshell more…

Just scanned in the last of my polaroid gems from Paris… check out these cars I spied there…


in the courtyard of the very cool store, Merci, a Bambina as part of their garden shop display


weird to see such a big car on the streets of Paris, in a town full of teeny tiny gas lovin ones, but cool paint job!



getting seriously groovy with some flower power action, oh you crazy french people…

    These flowered cars are fantastic! We have a junky little convertible which I have been petitioning to be allowed to paint polka dots on but so far my efforts have failed. Perhaps these photos might help my case. Thanks!

      I hope these help for inspiration, but also I used to ride a really crappy 1967 vespa in the 80’s and it was red with multi colored polka dots all over it, a custom paint job done by a friend and a total showstopper, you should totally paint your junk!
