Sunday was much noisier than Saturday, but everyone seemed to be having masses of fun. The weather was still beautiful which, of course, makes it all so much better. The Los Cassanoialos were playing and the crowds were dancing and singing along.
These guys were fooling around on their stilts and proved that they had amazing balance.
The children were having a fantastic time
As were the older children and adults!
I timed my visit today especially to see the old cars, which were fascinating.
Details of the Citroen above are on the label below, which was put on the car just after I took the photo.
Below is a Citroën Traction Avant or "Light 15". This was the first (I think) front wheel drive car ever produced in large numbers and was built by the French manufacturer from 1934 to 1957. Very advanced for its day.
Without a doubt this is a Simca, the badge says so! Simca (Société Industrielle de Mécanique et Carrosserie Automobile) was a French carmaker, originally founded in November 1934 by Fiat. See more about the history of Simca Here. There are a number of different models and I am really not sure which this one is.
This below is certainly a Renault. After quite a lot of research, I suspect that this is a Renault NN (Renault 6CV) (1925-1929) CV is French for horsepower but the 6 in this case is merely a class rating for vehicle taxation purposes.See Here
and there were two of them - saloon and convertible!
A Peugeot 301 which is a mid-size four cylinder engined car produced by Peugeot between 1932 and 1936. See Here
Peugeot 202; production of this car ran between 1938 and 1942 and then, after a brief production run of 20 in early 1945, restarted in mid-1946. It was sold until 1949. See Here for more information.
This Panhard looks like it could do with some restoration, as quite a lot of rust was visible. Research tells me this is a Panhard Dyna Z 3, but I am not able to find any history at all about the model, other than the construction period appears to be between 1953 and 1959
Then there was this Renault Caravelle 1959-1968 for more information see Here
Last but certainly not least was my favourite; this lovely Amilcar. I think this is a 1921 CC. See Here.
Hope that you enjoyed the two days of fun in Chasseneuil; I certainly did!!
