Rewind to Lyon, France, in the early 1990s

We’re traveling back to Lyon, France, in the early 1990s.  What car(s) can you identify in these images? What one(s) would you most like to have in your garage?

We’ve got dibs on the Talbot Rancho that’s backing out of a spot in the first picture, the 204 next to the w124 in the same shot and the Renault 6 in front of the Palais des Sports.

  1. i will take the MB parked 7 cars up the row on right and the feista 7 cars up the second from right row, both in 1st photo. plus the feista on right of second photo.

  2. Since the Matra Rancho is taken, I will take the white Citroen LNA driving out of the car park in the first picture and the black Ford Escort next to the white R6 in the second photo.

    • Good call on the LNA. I’m under the impression that enthusiasts are starting to seek them out, I see more and more of them on the road. Surprising, but awesome. They’re kind of an “entry-level” classic for folks who want to get an old car without spending a fortune.
