The French term Fourgonnette is all about a small delivery vans. And you’d always see many Fourgonnettes en France. Every single French manufacturer had a pretty small car turned into one. Citroën had to come up with one based on the 2CV. You might have seen some before.

And I shared the story on the Fourgonnette as well before. So no need to go into that. Again.

I could cover all the companies these represent but most of ‘m are known as well. My favorite probably is that Orangina Fourgonnette. Both for the colors (I’m a sucker for orange) and the product they produce.

The EDFGDF is somewhat lesser known. At least, in the world. In France it’s very well known as it is for the sister companies “Électricité de France” and “Gaz de France”, the major suppliers for electricity and gas in France.

And another great one is that dark green (or is it brown?) one below.

That tire doesn’t look that great!

For decades the postal services have driven green cars but they apparently had a way, way darker appearance in an era a long, long time ago. Too dark for me. Especially for such a happy car.

But I’m a sucker for ladders so maybe I’ll just have to swap the EDF GDF ladder to the Orangina Fourgonnette. No idea why an Orangina delivery guy should use one but still.

The Shell one looks too clownesque to me. As does the Michelin Bibendum on the yellow one.

And that’s it for today. No idea if I’ll put up a Truckin’ Teutonic Tuesday as well. Probably not. Anyway...

Bon Week-End!

Watch your head Bibendum!
