    Around Paris you need a Landrover to stop them running in to you.
    or if they do damage limited.

    Hi.
    If you have doubts as to how many........ Come to Portugal,the question here is........ How many cars are on the roads that.."Are Under " 19 years old LOL These good 'ol boys up in the hills,mean getting every last "Cents" worth from their cars and m/cycles,the chap , ( whoes wife is the leader of the ladies "Wheel barrow wheeling formation team" in the village,is riding around on a Two stroke,"Fire and smoke belching" motor cycle,that was looted from the Incas when Vasco da Gama was poking about in South America.
    Under powered ?....Not at all,if it cannot quite manage the hill up to the village due to being laden down with goods/timber/fertilizer,huge gas bottles etc,he will get off and walk alongside,only as a last resort,will he part unload ,nip home and come back again for the rest. The number on the number plate?............ "You cannot be serious...!" Probably in the barn,with his crash helmet,an ex WW1 Spiked german helmet.....

    In France? Probably thousands.
    The French aren't a throw away society.
    Usually they'll only change their cars when they are totally beyond repair.

    Stop at many super markets and you'll probably find several Renault Safranes and Renaults 25's in pristine condition.

    Well, looks like I wont be going to Paris in my 1990 Defender any more. Come to think of it, I never have. I wander how far out from Paris that ban will stretch to. Last time there was a max speed limit a few years back it nearly stretched all the way to Belgium to the north and Dordive to the east.

    Used to own a 1986 Morgan 4/4 4 seater which was purchased from me by someone who lived in Paris. Wonder if it is still there and what he will do now.

    Not in pristine condition. The French drive them till they are full of dents, then change them. Spares for Renaults are very expensive so when they breakdown they are scrapped. On my last Renault Scenic the clock on the dash went. This was about five years ago. Renault wanted €1700 to repair it. The turbo went €3500. And the list goes on.
