\"\"French Polynesia has issued two stamps dedicated on vintage vehicles.The first stamp illustrates \”Tilbury\” convertible. This model appeared in French Polynesia in the beginning of the 20th century. Such cart drawn by the horse was very convenient for tracks in the bush. It was imported at great expense from San Francisco.

The second stamp features \”De Dion Bouton\” truck. This vehicle appeared before World War I. The skilful Polynesians transformed the vans into public transport vehicles under the name of \”truck\” or goods transport vehicles or even advertising vehicles or food vans.
