Spécialité de capotage, Cognac

"Capotage" is an interesting word in French, especially when it is used together with "automobile" since it can mean either "body cowling" or "overturning" (ie "landing on the hood", the French for (car) "hood" being "capot"). I would assume that on this ghost sign, they had the first meaning in mind.
