Illustration for article titled Citroën-Driving French Cops Versus Buick Sport Wagon: Lhomme à la Buick!

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!

Just came back from a business day-trip to Brussels (hooray for Thalys): they make the best French fries there, amazing. Anyways, I'm watching a 30 year old French movie right now titled "l'Homme à la Buick" (the man with the buick). Pretty cool story, and ok film about a provincial dandy who is actually a smuggler and drives around in a big buick station wagon often being chased by cops in DS's and 404's.
