A precarious accident or whimsical art?


Victor Hugo multi-storey car park,  Bordeaux,  May 2017

An early 1960s-era Mark 2, in British racing green, hangs precipitously over Cours Victor Hugo in central Bordeaux. Luckily, no Jaguars were harmed in the making of this parking lot.

This car park was built in the 1960s and underwent renovation in the early 1990s. Jean-François Dosso,  the architect  for the renovation works, added a 1960s-era Mark 2 Jaguar, in British racing green

The dangling car has hung there ever since, brightening up an otherwise staid car park.



Now over to all of you. Do come and join us in our Saturday six-word musings.

Now, many of us openly break the numeric rule and share far more words (all excellent of course!) so the key rule is to have a title of six words – and then create around that the post that you desire! Perhaps in bunches of 6 words if you’re feeling inspired.

To join the challenge, please put a link in your post to the URL of this post. Then come back here and leave us a comment. If you have any problems with linking, just put your own URL into the comment. And do feel free to socialise digitally – tweet, instagram, flickr, etc. with the hashtagtags #SixWordSaturday and #6WS.

    • Ah, but do you have a classic car like that?!
      When I looked closely at it I really wasn’t sure if it was real or not. The smashed and broken rails looked genuinely accidental. Then good old google told me it had been there since the 90s! I’m so glad someone had a sense of humour when doing this car park job
