    Just returning from a weekend in Paris, one of my favourite cities.
    I noticed that the French car market seem to have about 9 to 11 years old.
    A large variaty of marques and models… obviously the majority of them are Renault, Peugeot or Citroen. I also noticed the quantity of Fords, Bmw´s, Mercedes, Nissan, Toyota , mainly Yaris, vw´s aroud the city of ligth. Some old cars such as the Citroen CX, Renault Supercinque, Renault R4, Peugeot 504 or Citroen 2cv!
    Lots of porsches, some maseratis and ferraris in Champs Elysés…
    Next weekend Rome and then London.
