Villeneuve

That is one hell of a shipping container building

It’s for one hell of a construction site, upgrading a bridge on one of the most used highway in Switzerland.

in the movies, this is the moment when a minor character dies atrociously

Is this supposed to be something relating to Aleister Crowley? The markings look familiar.

It’s more than possible, it’s one of the “concrete monsters” of Ellezelles, a tiny town in Belgium with a lot of witchcraft folklore.

Ah, interesting. Kinda reminds me of Salem but older.

same cause, same effect ;o)

Vogue

Is that your moped?

Ah ah nope ! I think it belongs to a fisherman on the pier. But this Peugeot 103 “Vogue” is an iconic model, very rugged and reliable, produced non-stop since 1971 (since 2006 they are made in China, and are also still produced in Morocco).

oh god why did the PT cruiser even get exported there

Funny thing, they are everywhere – there is not a day i won’t see one. It’s probably one of the most sold American car* of those last twenty years.

But to be honest, I don’t really get the hate against this car. It’s probably awful to drive, like most American cars (road networks being so different), but the fact they are still plenty on the road seems to tell us they maybe aren’t reliable, but at least durable, and it’s the best designed cars of the retro style wave (or at least, it aged well – all the other examples apart for some JDM keicars are a huge fail or didn’t live up to the hype). I’m pretty sure the last survivors will be rather collectible and will get a huge following in fifteen-twenty years.

*excluding of course Jeep trucks of this statistic

The PT Cruiser is honestly the worst American car I have ever driven.

  • It has no pickup(feels like there is small motorcycle engine under the hood)
  • It has the worst turning radius of any car I have ever driven
  • the suspension is junk(feels like it bottoms out even on the smallest bump)
  • I also don’t like the aesthetics of them externally and the economics internally

A lot of people stateside call them PT “Loser”.

A car conceptualized by a man called Clotaire d’Arcy Rapaille can’t be totally wrong and I’m sure it can’t be worse than a late 80′s Chrysler LeBaron convertible 🙂 I hadn’t drived a lot of American cars (and they were all pretty shot down), but they all seriously scared me, and if I were to spot them in some kind of personal top list, they all would score a little under a FIAT Panda Mk I or an entry-level Dacia Sandero (the one where luxury consists in having electric headlights and windshield wiper). Anyway, thanks for the input !

On a sidenote, I’m always amazed by the American gearhead culture about power (I’m thinking of Jalopnik comments).
