1960s / Rewind

Rewind to Paris, France, in 1968

We’re traveling back to Paris, France in August of 1968, mere months after a period of heavy social unrest. What cars can you identify in this picture? What one would you most like to have in your garage?

    • I’d be tempted by a Beetle as well, the one on the left side of the pic reminds me of the 1962 I had.

      I think my choice would be the Renault 4 Super on the right, those are rarer than hen’s teeth today.

  1. tough question. any is good 🙂 i recognize 2cv, peugeot 404 and 304 i think, renault 4 but I would go with Simca from 2nd row left.
    (btw whats the last car in first raw on the left line facing the photographer? )

  2. Remember walking along there in 1966. Also recall that on the Route Nationales the cars driven with the greatest gusto in those days were 404s: I guess piloted by hommes d’affaires in a bit of a hurry.
