Every now and then I find something on t-Bay that I not only can't resist, but don't have the least idea what it was. Here is my latest - in the shape of a T radiator reading "2me rallye du journal LeFordiste 1925"
Do any of our French readers know anything about a Ford owner group or club meeting?
A "journal" is a magazine and "le Fordiste" means "the Fordist" (which I assume is someone who owns a Ford.) I found this in Google:
The text you posted means "2nd Rally of the magazine The Fordist - 1925."
Thanks Dick - you got a bit farther with your search than I did. Now the question is whether this was the French version of the Ford Owner & Dealer or a factory based magazine sent to new owners.
It's not clear to me. The only two hits that were significant were on a website for retro gifts. I gather it's possible to buy a copy (or just a page, maybe) and you can get it framed. I couldn't find a reference to the magazine itself.
The sub-heading of "Le Fordiste" for the picture you posted says there's an important article inside that pertains to the the maintenance of the new Ford Car.
The center of the Journal says something to the effect of having been several months since resuming activity at the FoMoCo of Belgium, (then a bunch of writing you can't read), it says "when you purchase your New Ford"
I paraphrased, of course.
I believe "journal" in this case is a newspaper.
