Rewind to Marseille, France, in the early 1970s

We’re traveling back to Marseille, France, in the early 1970s. Located right on the Mediterranean Sea, Marseille is one of the biggest cities in France so it has always been a crowded place, but the following postcards show it was much more peaceful 40-years ago than it is today.

What cars can you identify in the following images? What one(s) would you most like to have in your garage? Personally, we’d have a hard time turning down the blue Panhard 24 waiting to turn left in the third photo.
