27.1 – TRIP to CLEMONT – DOMINIQUE LAUREAU -
Voyage à Clémont -
Nicole Lanternier - Dominique Laureau The kingdom of 5HP in Clémont
June 14 and 15, 2014
It's been well over a year since André has offered me to make a visit to Dominique Laureau, "THE" 5HP specialist in Clémont in
Sologne ... He has several tens of tons of parts for these cars (and others), and André dreams of going to see that, and of
course also of recovering some rare pieces that he misses.
So here we are on June 14, 2014 on the road to Clémont.
By my fault (for once, I should have trusted the GPS and not taken my usual route to Orleans), we did not take the big bypass
around Paris by the east, and we lost more than two hours to cross ...
First step, to recover a rear axle for my BL 38 at Bernard's 40 km from Clémont.
That done, and before reaching the gîte where André has reserved rooms for us, he can't help but make the small detour
through the lair of Dominique Laureau ! Warm welcome by this really nice couple who was already waiting for us ...
The show is impressive, surreal, and will do without any comment ... André feels like a fish in the water, he will only take a few
photos while I machine gun for his archives, in order to be able to restore his C3 5HP cabriolet 1923 in the strictest respect for
the origin ...
(The photos are in strictly chronological ordeer, apart from that there is therefore no logic ...)
It is therefore a page that will only interest the seriously ill in the terminal stage!
After a good hour of wonder, it is time to go to the cottage where we are also expected, we are a little tired and we are ...
Sunday June 15, 2014
9:30 am, André is impatient and we return to this beautiful property dedicated to 5HP ...
A snake surprised by André:
And I continue to machine gun, I will only do that for two hours ...
It's noon, and this lovely couple invites us to lunch. Delicious meal,; you eat well in Sologne! Another big thank you for this
delicious meal ..
But it is time to leave for Brussels, André has done his shopping and has fun with some jokes:, helped in this by Mr Laureau!
While André is loading his car, I see a greenhouse next to the main building. I ask Mr Laureau if there is a vegetable garden,
and he takes me to see his "crops": . André will only discover these photos when they return to Brussels!
Last memories , and we hit the road.
This time we will largely bypass Paris by the east, I do not know if it really saves time, but at least we are not in traffic ...
And a last little stop at Senlis; it is boring to be a passenger in a car , I want to stretch my legs and refresh my throat! I also
bought a Michelin map to understand where we went. I also thought then that it would be useful for my trip in Cathar
country, alas ...
