A French museum has amassed a collection of cars that used to belong to world leaders, including the DS Charles De Gaulle was blown up in. Motorbiker.Org's Mike Werner takes us on a tour.
We can't tell you what cheezoid cop show you're watching, nor can we tell you why the chiseled good guy in the Renault 5 is pursuing the obvious baddie in the Citroën.
A blasted-looking J.C. France, grandson of NASCAR founder Bill France and Grand-Am racer, was arrested in Daytona Beach with his "housemate" for an illegal trifecta: drug possession, street racing and DUI. Yup, Cocaine is a hell of a drug.
OK, so we've got this alternative universe in which new Peugeots are sold in Southern California, and in that universe are singing Detroit junkers!
It's a shame that the Citroën brand never really made it big in North America, because nobody does weird ads like Citroën. Post-apocalyptic scenarios, brain-scrambling animations, and- of course- the giant robot head of Grace Jones!
Driving $500 cars from New York to New Orleans sounds like fun, but those BABE Rally guys must be made of money! How about 1,500 miles in cars that cost £150 (about $247)?
Unemployed workers at the New Fabris factory outside of the French town of Chatellerault are threatening to blow up their former workplace if they don't get $43,000 from Renault and Peugeot-Citroen, the companies blamed for destroying their livelihoods.
Say you're a French jewel smuggler in the late 1960s and you're shopping for the ideal work vehicle. How about a Buick Sport Wagon? A little on the conspicuous side, sure, but such style!
The General is having a tough enough time selling trucks in North America, but France? Fortunately for GM, the new American administration had a great campaign slogan, ideally suited to moving iron off the lot!
The best ads tell a story, and this one for the mid-90s Citroën XM Pallas certainly does that. In fact, it's more of an informercial than an regular car ad, with inspiring music right out of an Early Dot-Com Era shareholder's meeting. Best as we can tell, the Citroën driver here is bringing a box containing a critical…
Welcome to Project Car Hell, where you choose your eternity by selecting the project that's the coolest... and the most hellish! Last time we stepped into the Liquid Sodium Garage, 78% of you felt that the WRX-powered VW Beetle would be your eternal torment, leaving the poor Granada hearse unwanted and unfeared. But…
This is Down On The Street Bonus Edition, where we check out interesting street-parked cars located in places other than the Island That Rust Forgot. Today we've got some shots by Project Car Hell Poster Child and serial tipster Franzouse, whose Paris wanderings led him to this riot-proof Kadett. Is Franzouse…
All right, that headline isn't quite what you'd call accurate; actually the Alliance probably hastened AMC's demise by a few years; while Chrysler could get a great big bailout from Uncle Sam, AMC- not being considered "too big to fail"- had to get bailed out by the French government.

When a man really loves a woman, he
