Two summers ago I blogged about three old gems I discovered, abandoned in a rickety old shed in the Tarn-et-Garonne department in the south of France. As you are all faithful, reliable readers, I’m sure you recall, but here is the link to refresh your memories:
The caller, a gentleman with a fantastic southern France accent, started out by explaining that I might find his message strange, then continued to explain that he had come across my number scribbled in the dirt on his Ford Consul. The shed was in danger of falling down, and had to be taken down for safety reasons, so he had pulled out the cars and noticed the note I had left. Curious if the number was still active and if I was still interested, he called to tell me the car in fact WAS for sale!
Which is why, for those of you that know me, this is totally possible! I hope to soon be able to tell you more about the Ford Consul! Stay tuned!
