I've not seen a single pickup truck. Even on the ~ 30 minute drive from the airport through some more rural areas. Some Fords one Chevy and no dodge. America is expectedly poorly represented :mrgreen:

Tons of puegot, Renault, fiat and the like. The german's are popular too. I'll keep you guys appraised of what really matters as we travel: car culture :goodfinger:

A little hard to see but a seemingly nicely restored VW bus in white and yellow. Parisian hipsters?

Found some military 4x4 action. Made by Ivenco I believe. The French and Italian military apparently regularly roam popular monuments and museums. Banana clip rifles and all.

Some British love. The local police also have some defenders. And yes their stick! And yes smoking while talking on the phone and banging gears is encouraged :mrgreen:

Complete with Baretta rifles with banana clips and oddly clear bottom where you could see that the large magazine was indeed full.
