Thursday Doors – A Long Way From Home

Last week two of our regular Thursday Door contributors – the illustrious Norm himself and the wonderfully whimsical Jean Reinhardt – posted a couple of light-hearted entries at a slight tangent to the usual ‘door on a building’ theme.  I confess that this week I have not been able to be out and about in search of doors on buildings and wondered whether my own vehicle based contribution would be acceptable?

These particular doors are a very long way from home. The police vehicle was an entry in our famous classic car meeting in the local town of Angoulême – the ‘Circuit des Remparts’.  A host of cars from all periods and different walks of life spend the weekend touring the local countryside and over the weekend, haring round the streets of Angoulême in various races and exhibition circuits. I’m not sure if the Oklahoma Police Department have noticed the absence of this beauty yet but I have several mug shots if they need any clues. As to the bullet holes – I really wish I knew……………..Oklahoma Highway Patroml 1Click here for more entries to Norm Frampton’s Thursday Doors Challenge…….

    So funny! I lived in Oklahoma for 3 years before moving to Florida! Odd place for an old patrol car to turn up!

    1. Hi Janet! Yes in some ways though it seemed to fit, rural France can feel very like the 50’s sometimes!

    1. Hi Stacy! Glad you like it – I should have posted a pic of the 2 French gendarmes who were hanging around it, that did seem a little strange!

  7. Oh that’s a fabulous photo, Jane. I love the bullet holes but I’m glad I wasn’t in it when they were ‘decorating’ the car. 😉

    1. Cheers Jean! The bullet holes remain a mystery waiting to be solved – would love to know just how they got there!

    Love a mystery! And apropos the Circuit des Remperts, I have visited some years ago…what a spectacle!

    1. Hi Sue – fancy you having been there! It is quite something isn’t it? No doubt European health and safety rules will put paid to it eventually but certainly a great event for the moment! 🙂

      3. ..ooh ja, das ist natürlich ein sehr verführerisches Vergnügen. Dann ist es aber auch nicht nur von A nach B. Dann sollte es schon von Antibes nach Bordighera sein ! 🙂
