It’s about time I’d do another car from Jean Graton’s mind. So I present you: the Vaillante Ipharra. And it was that special it was good enough for our hero Michel Vaillant himself to drive one in his private life. In the same episode I’ve talked before actually: the 8th episode with the title Le 8e Pilote.
Bastille Day is the most important French national day. Setting the storming of the Bastille in 1789 as an essential part of the French History. The 14th July has become a major public holiday, traditionally considered as the symbol of the French Revolution. So to prevent me from relating a specific car manufacturer…
Just some night time shots of Mr. Vaillant in his 1961 Vaillante. I’m finally figuring out my lens flare app a little bit!
Last night I took some nice shots of the Vaillante Caïro that I got from Jobjoris in that amazingly epic iHWEP box that I am slowly revealing piece by piece. And because it rolls so nicely, I thought I’d take some panning shots as well.
It’s called the “Panamericana”. From the Carrera Panamericana. Just like Porsche took the Carrera part from this epic race. And it’s another cast from Jean Graton’s Michel Vaillant-comics. From which I’ve shown stuff before.

I have some 205T16s but these are all the plain Group B versions, not the lengthened Rally Raid edition. But then I remembered I got some Vaillantes a little while ago I almost forgot about.…
At long last I get to show off this stunning model that good friend Jobjoris sent me in our last iHWEP. It’s been a busy time, leading to a lack of me posting and a lack of me taking pictures of cool cars. But this is the coolest of cars, and therefore deserves attention.
