France is incapable of manufacturing ‘great’ road cars.

Don't forget the Peugeot (or Pig-Out as we used to call them) 505 Diesel. The only car that Consumer Reports ever rated as having inadequate acceleration. Zero to 60 in 21 seconds!

Madness has its toll.  Please have exact change.

Clark, that's a Matra with a Renault logo.
Don't forget VENTURI or the 504 coupé and cabriolet.
And every Citroën form the 50ies to the 70ies.
Ahhh, vive la France...
I'm going to smoke a Gitanes right away.

I like good looking cars, too.
