Retromobile is like putting all of my automotive fantasies under one giant roof! Retromobile is like putting all of my automotive fantasies under one giant roof!

Retromobile is an auto show, except good: for one week, it puts together all sorts of amazing classic cars from a Hon-Hon Twingo to McLaren F1 cars. I wish I could be allowed to sleep in there.

Good news, everyone! Good news, everyone!

The HON-HON Twingo is now considered a classic car by Renault! This one was basically brand new. I’ll make a dump of all the crazy stuff I saw at Retromobile in the coming days!

What it's like to drive across Paris with 700 classic cars What it's like to drive across Paris with 700 classic cars

Last weekend I joined “La Traversée de Paris”, an incredible event where 700 classic cars get together twice a year and drive across Paris. Surely the best way to visit the city!

Merry Christmas Oppo! Merry Christmas Oppo!

Hope the holidays are treating you guys well! Made this Lego Santa Sleigh for a bit of fun. Because V8-delivered presents are best presents, amirite?

France isn't always featured on the FP France isn't always featured on the FP

But boy, do we make sure to be remembered. What a nutjob of a person. Eww.

On Drivetribe’s chat, Thursday. Maybe someone should ask him why exactly he doesn’t own a brown diesel Volvo wagon?

Like Pebble Beach, but for actual petrolheads: Chantilly Art & Elegance report/photodump! Like Pebble Beach, but for actual petrolheads: Chantilly Art & Elegance report/photodump!

In the Château’s gardens, the golden morning light had finally pierced through the clouds. A gentleman was spraying starter fluid in the Bugatti Atlantic’s engine bay. Farther on my right, someone was warming up a Le Mans-winning Ferrari V12. “Yes”, I thought, “yes, this will do”.

Yesterday was a grand old day Yesterday was a grand old day

Not pictured: a Bugatti Atlantic, the Ferrari Breadvan, Romain Grosjean, a Le Mans-winning 250TR and countless other Le Mans Ferraris, and so much more... Report/photodump should be there tomorrow is Kinja doesn’t kick me in the nuts!

It's that time of the year again! It's that time of the year again!

The visor cam videos from Car Week at Laguna Seca start dropping on the RACER channel. Pick your fancy: GT40, 787B, IMSA Mazda MX6, Audi R8 with Tom Kristensen, ‘68 911 with Pat Long...

A nice Sunday drive through French towns and countryside, with 300 fellow classic cars! A nice Sunday drive through French towns and countryside, with 300 fellow classic cars!

Last Sunday I went to the “Traversée d’Orléans” (literally: “driving through Orléans”), a yearly classic car event centered around Orléans, a city roughly 80 miles south of Paris. It was great fun, and also surprisingly popular with the locals!

French National Day photodump! French National Day photodump!

Look, I’m far from being the biggest patriot there is. Hell, I even feel more for Europe than I do for France. But I did get woken up by some low-flying jets, so let’s celebrate that day with some cool cars that came out of this country! It’s also a good excuse to post again that magnificent Matra V12 sound:

Went to see Guns N' Roses last night! Went to see Guns N' Roses last night!

The guys still got it! I was surprised to see that Axl Rose still has a decent voice, especially after a 3 hours set. And Slash is a goddamn genius. Awesome show, and great crowd too!

1934 Rolls-Royce 20/25: mini Oppo review! 1934 Rolls-Royce 20/25: mini Oppo review!

While we were making our way to the RREC annual meet in the UK, my dad stopped by the side of the road and asked me if I wanted to drive his 1934 Rolls-Royce. You bet I did! So here’s the review, as promised. It’s not gonna be fully complete as I obviously don’t own the car and didn’t get to drive it for extended…

The 800-miles Pre-war Rolls-Royce Roadtrip to England, and What We Did There The 800-miles Pre-war Rolls-Royce Roadtrip to England, and What We Did There

Last weekend was the annual Rolls-Royce Enthusiasts’ Club reunion in northern England, so my dad and I went for a 800-mile roadtrip in his 1934 20/25 Rolls-Royce. Here’s how that five days adventure went!

Alright, which of you bought this? Alright, which of you bought this?

Because I understand the temptation. A Silver Spirit, for £6k! And it wasn’t in a bad shape either. But you just know that first repair bill is gonna be twice as much as that. Still tempting...

The 24hrs Museum is the other thing you should do when you're in Le Mans! The 24hrs Museum is the other thing you should do when you're in Le Mans!

Sure, you might think that you have better things to do when attending the Le Mans 24 hours than to spend a couple of hours in a museum. But honestly, trust me it’s worth it. Plus it’s now free to visit during the race weekend, and stays open until 1am. And when it rains, it’s the best shelter you can find!

On the way to the UK! On the way to the UK!

Going to Stamford to the annual Rolls Royce Enthusiasts’ Club meet. But mostly to get bacon.

It's the Oppo 24 hours of Le Mans report! It's the Oppo 24 hours of Le Mans report!

Once a year, France forgets to pretend it doesn’t like cars, and the magic of Le Mans happens. Hold on to your butts, it’s the Le Mans photodumpstravanganza!
