Something Fun

Guess what. Remember the little car from our holiday photoshoot? Well, Ben Blair bought it! Apparently the seller lowered the price (it was already a bargain!), and he couldn’t resist. Even without the wreath, it’s so charming I can hardly stand it. I hope we can figure out how to get it back to the States — I’d love to see Ralph drive it when he’s old enough — and if not, at least we’ll get to enjoy it while we’re here!

I always love perfectly imperfect vintage cars. They have small price tags, big personality and don’t feel precious — so you don’t have to overly protect them or keep the kids away. So fun!

P.S. — These images were shot by Wendy of Blue Lily.

  1. I love it! You can still find a lot of vintage cars in our streets on this island. When I was younger I used to dislike them but now I have a whole new appreciation for them and the little history they carry with them. I hope you manage to get it over to America!

  2. 4L is a classic. Citroen Diane or an original VW Beatle or the 600 or 500 series Fiat. I’m sure I’m forgetting many other great classic (and small) European city cars….

  3. That’s awesome! I love that little car from your pictures. I really do hope there’s a way you can bring it back to the States. Your boys will thank you for it when they’re teenagers. :)

  4. we had the same one when we lived in Brussels with my parents, only in red. 30 years later we always comment about the small car we had (4 kids) and we even went to Spain and Italy for a summer, so it’s not bad at all for a large family car jajaja

  5. What a wonderful souvenir! Call the Mayflower agent you worked with in the past. Mayflower moves items all over the world. They’ll definitely find a way to get it back to the states for you!

  6. Oh goodness that IS something fun! I so hope you can bring it back to the states…and then I’m going to come visit so we can take a spin in it! Wouldn’t that be amazing to learn to drive in!

  7. I love Renault 4s! A good friend of mine had one in Italy that didn’t have a handbrake – spent quite a lot of time chasing it down slopes!
