Traction Avant Wedding car

I helped out a friend today for a wedding with the Traction Avant.    Tractions are not often seen as wedding cars, but they are rather striking and work pretty well.   For this wedding two Light 15s were used.    The big bodied cars would probably work better, but the light 15 was roomy enough for five people.   You do notice the extra weight – with only 56 h.p. even four slim bridesmaids mean rather slow progress up hills.

The other light 15 has an ID motor and four speed gearbox installed which probably helps, but the slow progress is part of the charm of these cars.  On a humid Sydney day, the ability to open the windscreen was a life saver!  While waiting in Traffic one person asked us for a business card as she wanted to use the cars for her wedding later in the year.   I don’t do weddings other than for friends, but it does show there would be interest.
