1960s / 1970s / French / Rewind

Rewind to La Baule, France, in the late 1960s / early 1970s

We’re traveling back to La Baule-Escoublac, a highly-touristic resort located on the west side of France. The town is famous for its hotels, its restaurants and its casinos, and people from all over the world are drawn to its 12-mile-long beach.

What cars can you identify in the following photos taken in La Baule in the late 1960s and early 1970s? What one would you most like to have in your garage?

    • There’s a nice split-window on the bottom left of the second picture. Lots of R8s/10s, those were plentiful in the 1960s but kind of a rare sight today, especially the 10.

      • there was a R10 for sale at 2014 spring Carlisle. last time i saw one being driven on the road was at the” imports at carlisle”. this years event is this coming weekend.

  1. down the central reservation of picture 2- there’s a white Citroen GS and in the foreground some sort of Pug coupe?? Either would do.
