To break up the monotony of the V.I.S.I.T. posts, and ignoring the fact you you Hoons simply did not send in much great stuff, today we will look at French cars which are currently living and dying in Poland. As we have previously, when we looked at the American cars living and dying in Poland, we will utilize Zlomnik.pl and its readers.
I previously introduced Zlomnik to Hooniverse; we looked at cars around my old neighborhood, the country as whole, and even a junk yard in Norway. Check out the website, they even have a handy translator now.
Like anywhere else, French cars were imported to Poland more as a stylish alternative to boring square boxes than anything else. No one who wanted reliability and durability bought them. That says a lot when you compare these to much cheaper Eastern Bloc cars, which sure as heck were far from being as solid as a ’88 Hyundai Excel.
Even in the 1980’s, I remember owners of these car being somewhat different; they would dress differently, they would have flair, and they all smoked a lot. They were proud of their cars, the way a parent has to be proud of their underachieving child. They had style, they had grace, they looked great while performing minor repairs on the side of the road.
Enjoy the cars, identify as many of them as possible.
No sure if French, but interesting.
