Again, UNIVEM was invited by the “Vincennes en Anciennes” association (an association of classic cars) to attend the arrival of their famous event, the “Traversée de Paris”: hundreds of classic cars driving through Paris on Sunday morning. The finish line being in the castle of Meudon, which is on the edge of a wooded plateau, that offers views of the Seine and Paris.
UNIVEM came with about forty members and twenty vehicles. Theme was the Red Ball Express, the famed truck convoy system that supplied US forces during WW2, with the International M425, the GMC CCKW tanker, the GMC Tipper and a lot of accessories. By their sides, Half-Track M5 and M16, Dodge WC56 and 58, Laffly V15T, Jeep Navy and French Second Armored Division, Jeeps from members, trailers and a 105 Howitzer completed the exhibition.
Beautiful weather (even a bit too hot!) made this day a great success that has to be renewed next year!
