Rewind to Paris, France, in 1970

Paris, France, is known for its famous landmarks, its museums, its restaurants and its crippling traffic jams. While restaurants often come and go, landmarks, museums and hours spent in traffic have been associated with the city for decades.

What cars can you identify in the following photo taken in 1970 in downtown Paris? What one would you rather have in your garage?

We’d personally be tempted by either the Simca 1000 Rallye II or the Lancia Flavia coupe, but we’d be happy with even a humble first-gen Renault 4 with a three-speed manual.
