Nouveau velo ou velo nouveau

Agreed.  Both choices are corrrect and depend on the context.  The same would apply when using ancienne.  One could say "mon ancienne voiture" or "ma voiture ancienne", depending on the circumstances.  Is it my old car or my prior car?

Hi Marc,

Your prior or former car would require "ancienne" before the noun. Your old car as in aged would require the adjective after the noun.

 

Hope this helps.
