I remember seeing many of those models briefly here in Canada over the years.Three or four years of our salty winters and they weren't even good enough for yard art. I had a '71 Renault 16TS until '74 when the body rusted away at the engine wiring junction,causing all kinds of shorts.Neat car, with all it's gaulic charm,and the 4 cylinder hemi could really go. They just weren't built for North America. Had a Renault 5 for a couple of years too.Sold it and bought a real vehicle,my 1978 GMC Caballero.

some vehicles had diseases (rust, ...) and it was fixed in the following years.
but as you say, they were surely not planned for this climate (salt, cold, ...)

That modern Citroen convertible is an interesting car.  And I love the sign on the back of the little red touring car:  "I was born in 1930.  I do what I can.  Thanks!"

do you talk about citroen ds?
if you talk about the blue cabriolet car, there has been only 3 copies of built, they are very rare. this model is made on base (mechanical) of citroen traction

Thanks for posting the photos. It is great to see cars we don't often see (if ever) over here in the states. Renault and Peugeot made some great looking vehicles and, of course, you know I've become partial to 2cvs recently!

That was a trip down memory lane! Many of those cars were common-ish here. Our family car was a Simca Etoile for a few years in the '60s (white one near the end) - ours was red but faded to pink. Some idiot drove into the front of us one Sunday and it looked a bit odd a few years later when the newer matched paint faded at a different rate to the rest of it! A teacher at high school had a Simca 1100 and drove it like a racing car - I see the Simca rally car there too.

hello spinneyhill :) , there was a lot of name for this simca, there was the Aronde , Etoile , P60 , Speciale , ... according to the finish ,  ...
it is also a good car ;) 
not far from home there is a simca aronde abandoned in a forest, unfortunately carroserrie is very sick :( , but there is always the mechanics in it, it would be worth the cost of being recovered.

yes indeed it is a simca 1000 rally 2, it's a very good car to race, track.
there was not much use at the time to compete.
this car was very light and fast ;)

SAM_8817.JPG.ecb6b8afabee6f64e8f8fa6ad0cee246.JPGThat silver coupe stopped me in my scroll, how old is it, are they legal in the USA? Bob 

 

hello 1937hd45 :) , this car is a simca CG coupe B (1000 or 1200 s ?) produced from 1966 to 1969, a good rival to the renault alpine A110 (berlinette).
it is a powerful and light car, it is a very good car too, perfect for the track ;) 

yes i think you can ride in america with this car without problem;)
here is a link that describes the car :)

I really liked the Renault I owned. An '86 Encore hatchback 1.4 liter. It would get an honest 40 mpg on the freeway and seemed to have high compression, good power and acceleration. I got it to about 95 mph on the freeway - flat, not downhill.

 

SAM_8800.JPG

 

It looked something like this Peugeot. What year is it? It's a shame good Euro economy cars don't make it over here. We're stuck with Japanese.

 

 

 

hello mike6024 :) , yes as you say it's a pity that there is no French car at home.
there was in France very good sports like the renault 8 gordini, renault 12 gordini, renault dauphine 1093, renault alpine A110, renault 5 alpine, r5 apline trubo, renault 5 turbo 1 and 2, peugeot 205 gti, peugeot 309 gti , peugeot 405 mi16, renault clio 16s, clio williams, simca 1000 rally, .... (and many others)

that of the photo is a peugeot 205 gti 1.9l of 1985 I think.
There was to manufacture the 205 gti 1.6 105 hp and 115 hp and then the 205 gti 1.9 130 hp, this car is very light (about 950 kg).

my father when he was young had a 205 gti  1.6l 115 hp from 1984, on this car my father had instal a chip, and he was riding at over 225 km / h (140 mph) on highway.
the 205 gti are very powerful, like the vw golf 2 gti :)

As odd as they seem to us here in US, I defy anyone to say those Citroen DS are not elegant. Welcome back jeune ami! And thanks for the pics of cars we only hear about here.

Hello Sebastien,

Yes, my 2cv started right up after it's winter's sleep. Now I just need some time to fix a few more things on it...
