Very cool the original all grey interior, ain't it? I've just added the accessory rubber matt to replace the stinky original one.. Really must clean the interior.. 17 years of dirt and dust from resting in a garage on those seats.



Another photo.. I wonder how old is this Motorola alternator.. anyone? Can't be that modern can it, since these SEV Marchal made kits were available to fit a Motorola for Ami 6..

Not sure if it a Visa alternator or perhaps an earlier Motorola..

At least the original voltage regulator is still in place.. With the car running my blinkers are crazy fast (they work normally when the engine is not running..), so I have have to check the system to see what's causing this.. Didn't have time to check this last fall, but I am taking the ami out of the garage tomorrow...

Just a quick photo with the license plates on. Also switched to red rear blinkers..

Cleanded up the trunk of the ami today.. guess what I found... a RAT SKULL!! How cool is that! Also, on the day I bought the car and did some cleaning before we started the drive home from Orleans France to Finland, I found another "animal thing" on the back seat... a SNAIL SHELL.. I've been wanting to create some sort of old 60s style fake worn out company logo and name to the sides (front doors maybe) of this ami, maybe it should be something with RAT SKULLS and SNAILS and preferably in French.. anyone with any cool ideas? Something in the line of RAT MORT SAR(très)L, Boucherie Charcuterie, depuis 1967 + logo to go with..

All comments & ideas for the fake Company name and Logo are very welcome. (Pour le nom, je compte surtout sur les snailers francophones)

Here's a closeup shot, showing the DAS badge that is on my ami + the red rear blinkers. DAS -> La Défense Automobile et Sportive, which is some sort of insurance thing started in Le Mans by the race car drivers.. or so I think?

So nothing to do with D.A.S. --> der autobahn scrappers



Cool

Here's the skull + a quick creation to give you an idea what I'm talking about here.. so something like this painted on the sides of the ami:







later!

The previous one was better. With the more detailed skull and the bigger "charcuterie boucherie" type I like the idea and the first version!

I added the first version above.. I prefer the 2nd one.. but both were made really quickly and without putting much though in them.

Funny stuff Turtle.

Just one thing : if the word "est", in "est 1967" means "since" the right french translation should be "depuis".

Thanks Clôd, I'll fix that to "depuis"..

Can you think of anything cool I could add underneath as the company slogan in French for Le Rat Mort - Boucherie Charcuterie?

The car is originally from "le departement de L'Eure".. maybe there is a local meat product that could be somehow included in the slogan? Razz

Good point, so made a small change Razz But I guess the expression "to rat on someone" does not exist in french?



Getting tired, time for some ZZzzzZZzZ!
