Drat! Now they’re making us buy a new car! — 4 Comments

  1. I am so sorry about that. You couldn’t get an engraving tool and do it yourself? No, I guess that wouldn’t be possible. We bought a Renault in 2001 and it has been a really great car so far. Ours is smaller and we barely put any miles on it, though. Have you considered one of those mini-trucks? I understand they make them quite comfortable these days. I am so sorry you can’t drive your car anymore.

  2. That’s a great photo. You can almost tell what Emma and the horse are thinking.
    The famous French bureaucracy at work, I guess. C’est normal! Et c’est dommage.
    I’m sorry, too, what a dilemma. We actually have a 16-year-old vane we use for hauling — I doubt that it would pass a road worthiness test.

  3. We were hoping to buy a small, economical car, as we don’t really use it that much, (1 or 2 road trips a year and weekly shopping) and save the big one for trips to the kennel, vet, DIY store, etc. But, the best laid plans…
    On the other hand, being forced into it alleviates the guilt of spending the money…. If one can’t fight it…enjoy it… And we are looking at the mini-trucks.. Thanks
