80 Years of the Traction Avant – Video Tribute

TF1 (French Television) ran a tribute to the Traction Avant last Sunday in honour of its 80th anniversary.   While they cover the big event held at La Ferté-Vidamme, France on Sept. 13 and 14 of this year, they also visit François-Xavier Despret, an avid Traction (with over 20 various types) and feature Andre Midol who took his 15-6 carbio on some of the worst roads in South America, Africa, Iran, and other places.   It’s a very well produced video of our favorite car.

Have a look at the 7 minute french video (starting with 2 adverts) here:
