Now here’s a car which ought to appeal to Hoons on either side of the Atlantic. Indeed, one which is probably somehow more revered in the USA than it is in the UK.
The Peugeot 504 is one of the more iconic shapes ever to have emerged from the nominally dull-as-dishwater category of “ordinary family sedan”, although that would probably be to undersell it somewhat. Plaudits rained down on the 504 from launch in ’68 right up to now, and with have been as important to the development of Africa as the Industrial Revolution was to the development of England, the Peugeot isn’t in danger of being culturally forgotten any time soon.
Still, having a 1:18 copy handy for safe keeping won’t do anybody any harm.
