1970s / French / Rewind

Rewind to Biarritz, France, in the late 1970s

We’re traveling back to Biarritz, France, a highly-touristic town located on the Bay of Biscay. This week, we’re lucky enough to travel in color.

What car(s) can you identify in this parking lot right off the beach? What one(s) would you most like to have in your garage?

Personally, we’d be tempted by the burgundy-colored Renault 10 on the left side of the photo but we’d ultimately go with the white Fiat 850 sedan.

  3. Well, I can see many Renault there (4, 5, 12, 14, 16, 20), some Citroën (2CV, Ami6, Dyane, and a GS maybe ?), a blue Ford Transit, plus the other cars mentioned by JIM S in the previous comment, and… that’s about it for me. By the way, is the red car (badly parked, with a man standing at the rear) an Opel Kadett ? Think so, but I’m not sure.

    Thanks for this nice picture, and keep up with this website, it’s a pleasure to browse it. Greetings from France !
