The Salon is now closed. Was there any nostalgia? In lounge 8 several french museums wetted our apetite for a visit with one or two of their cars. May I share some slides with you?

Thanks, actually this special Museum lounge was the best of the whole Salon. It was so crowded at the contemporary car stands, near impossible to shoot. Will never go there again on a public day.

The museum lounge was not so busy and prooved good material. Although the lighting was set up in such a way that it often obstruted in taking pictures.
There are quite a lot of museums to visit all over France. Some museums werent even represented. Mougins for instance.
