There were a couple of Avantimes at a motor pageant I went to recently (along with a Twingo and some sporty Clios of the same kind of age) and I was glad to see them. I like the sight of them and I don't see many even on visits to France.

Mostly the cars were older, and included a Dauphine and Caravelle.

I was intrigued by the distinctive way owners of Citroen 2CVs treated their cars. While owners of most makes and models - Morris Minors as well as Aston Martins - seemed not to want even a smear or speck of dust on their cars, 2CV owners had slapped stickers (of places visited) all over theirs.

Spending hours surrouded by likeable designs at the show had a noticeable effect on me - once I stepped out of it, some of the cars going past on the roads were a real affront to the eyes, while others seemed to be classics in waiting.
