Mon Dieu ! C'est un dinosaur français.

Saw this French obscurity rolling through my town today. French cars were shitboxes back in the day and it is a rarity to see one now. Only weird WWII refugees and bearded UConn professors drove them.
I used to hate seeing one come in the old gas station for snow tire swaps. The French wheels had no center holes, and would not fit on the Coates tire machines. French cars also always had Michelin X radials which are hard to change WITH a tire machine, even more hated with spoons!

But, even like my age-old enemy, the Dodge Dart, age makes it a bit cooler. I would rather drive the Renault 16 than a new Prius any day.
