Rewind to Paris, France, in the 1960s

We’re traveling back to Paris, France, in the 1960s. The photo below shows the Champs-Elysées. Which car(s) can you identify? Which one(s) would you most like to have in your driveway today?

  1. None, except maybe the VW Kombi Bus. Lots of Citroens, Renaults, a couple old Peugeots that most likely ride better than the multi-window bus though. And I do hate that my kneecaps are the only thing between me and the front bumper in a front-end collision in a microbus. Come to think of it, it would be the same in some of those Renaults too!

  4. A great photo. Scenes like this are one of the reasons why I love watching old French films from this time.

    Of the cars heading south in the photo I think I would like the Citroen Ami, Renault 8/10 (Not sure which it is) or a Peugeot 404. Don’t get me wrong, the DS is amazing too!
