Another Peugeot 404

April 5th, 2008 · No Comments

I do seem to run into these nice cars quite often, but hey, who cares. They look nice, and taking a few pictures is easy enough. Enjoy. The Peugeot 404 was a mid-sized car produced from 1960 to 1988. This was the most successful of several contemporary cars whose body style, designed by Battista ‘Pinin’ […]

Peugeot 504 Cabriolet

February 10th, 2008 · 5 Comments

Although I currently drive a Peugeot, I certainly don’t appreciate all Peugeots. However, with this sleek and smart cabrio, I spot myself a car I really like. Not surprisingly, it has a Pininfarina badge on the side… Now, don’t get me wrong. This is a Peugeot 504, and not a very exciting car. A relatively […]

Peugeot 304 S Cabriolet (1969-80)

January 2nd, 2008 · 1 Comment

This Peugeot really has won my heart. If anything shows from earlier posts, I certainly have a thing for old French cars. But this little, ugly, strangely proportioned 304s really is near the top for me, well, at least till I spot something even better. For sheer amusement, the Citroën 2CV AZ-L is even better, […]

Peugeot 404 panel truck

December 27th, 2007 · No Comments

I seem to keep spotting 404’s… What I like about this car, is that it, although obviously an oldie, is still in use. As a truck! I have no idea whether or not this is economically practical, but it sure shows that the Peugeot 404 is one rigid workhorse of a car! The car is […]

A hundred posts: my favorites

The Fiat 124 Sport Spider was my 100th posting on this weblog! So, let’s recap by giving you my personal top five (sort of in random order): the Corvette C1 was high on my spotting wish list, I think it is a beautiful car. the car that started this all, the Audi 100 Coupé S […]

Peugeot 404

November 21st, 2007 · 3 Comments

Close to were I spotted the Celica LT, I run into this nice classic Peugeot 404. This Pininfarina designed sedan was enormously robust, and I would say, lovely designed. And since there are nearly 2 million produced between 1960 and 1975 alone… I like a car like this, it is in mint condition, and the […]

Peugeot 403 Safari/Break

September 10th, 2007 · No Comments

And on the other side of the road from the Citroën Ami, this shiny big Peugeot 403 is parked. Now this car is huge! If I was born 40 years earlier, this would have been my dreamed kayak mobile! Check wikipedia for the specs, but trust me, from a outdoors perspective, this car is brilliant! […]

Peugeot 203

August 20th, 2007 · 2 Comments

Will you look at this car… It is completely shot! The paint job is horrible, the interior is almost non-existent. Rust and debri everywhere. A car in this state would be perfect for MTV’s Pimp my ride or something like that. I wonder if it still runs, or is it just rusting away on this […]
