Fourgons?
Where do ‘the days of yore’ come into it Tom ?
The problem is that "we hear" can apply to both sides of the clue, 'foregone' giving 'fourgons' and vice versa.

Yes, that’s right enough.
The intended answer was foregone so I thought the French bit may end up being the cryptic part.

I'd say it was a tie, or perhaps Tom was a bit ahead, Veem probably wouldn't mind if Tom put up a clue.

I was about to suggest that Tom should claim the credit as before he posted Fourgons, I certainly was nowhere near the answer.
