Man, those French. They'll do anything not to buy American, including build an ice-smoothing machine using what's apparently a drivetrain from the car the Krauts call the Ente. Our boy in the South of France, generally known as Philippe, sometimes known as French Guy and professionally known as Callaghan tossed us over this pic from the Carnival celebrations on the Riviera.
