Spoiler: show
Having looked at that I now assume them to be a bunch of Druid like hippies or maybe angels riding white swans ?

I can't find any mention of Eamonn Andrews working for Pathé so I'll go with Eade or possibly Bob Danvers-Walker.
No I was not referring to a Vespa :-D
A different form of transport to get you to the airport (almost!)
Have a listen to Moths Mick....Eamonn did do this narration for Pathe.

I was looking for a vague recollection of someone building a large automotive factory in Romania and came across a delightful bit of off-topicness by Paul-R, which was preceeded by an intitial one from Steve! :-D I thought it must have been a contribution to one of the threads on the Off Topic Chat Lounge, but no bang in the middle of a problem solving thread on the Citroen section of the forum.
So in 2011, what was outside the Paul-R's hotel when he paid a visit to Romania:?:
Of course should Paul see this post first, he wont need to look it up!

It is indeed Mick, often a points scorer for me as an answer on University Challenge

The factory I was thinking of wasn't in Romainia at all but in Komarom, Hungary built by Korean firm SK Innovation as reported on this thread

Electric Vehicle Batteries...the Race

The original purpose of this thread was to retrieve from time to time some of the good stuff from the FCF Archives which otherwise lies dormant.

Well my little google query on "frenchcarforum bots" relating to Huskyxantia's question today, produced as its first image the Milton Keynes shopping robot, but the second image was this, a very nice bit of creativity on Project Sticktiva.
