'Cause I completely forgot to post them for you after Paris last summer. And 'cause I'd rather be in France driving one of them than grading compos... Well yeah, I'd rather be in France being run over by one of them than grading compos for that matter.
You saw this one already on the blog and by now you might have seen one or two here in the US, altho the 4-door model over here is a bit bigger I think.
A wacky car you've probably seen here altho likely not as many as you'd see there. There are now actually 2 smart cars in the Clems*n area that I see regularly. Crazy!
And you might not have seen Citroën's version. Lots of car companies have smart cars there - Toyota has a really cute one, too, called the IQ. I like that some of them are curvier - seems like the ones I see here are very angular.
A wacky car most of you probably haven't seen over here (barring those of you in big cities that is).
Then you have cars which exist here but seem to have shape-shifted in France. Honda Civic anyone? If they looked like this here I might have stuck with Honda.
My favorite car in France last summer. Well, really my favorite was one like this but pale metallic green that I saw in Paris on a regular basis passing by Café Notre Dame, but I never got a shot of it.
This one was in Tours. So put green paint on it in your head and that is the car Sam and Lucy and I will be driving when we move to Touraine. (I specify Touraine b/c if we were in Paris we wouldn't bother with buying a car of course.)
Or we could just take Tully! This is really how he would look in France (as opposed to the photo last summer of the 5-door version). I finally saw a two-door one that was the same model as mine that same day in Tours. (Most of the Yaris examples in Paris [snort - Paris Yaris - kee] were the 4-door hatchback; never ever saw the Yaris sedan we have in the US.)
