One Of The Last Peugeots In America Faces The Crusher

Peugeot gave up on North America in 1991, so 405s (and 505s) of this era don't exactly crowd the Jettas out of the European section at my local self-service wrecking yard.

You can still buy a new 405, if you're willing to travel to Egypt or Iran, so the front-drive sedan has had great staying power outside of our continent.

You'll find on in every car, kid. You'll see.

A repair shop here is sort of a Peugeot graveyard. At one time it was littered with 504s and 505s and a couple of 405s. I had a 504 diesel wagon for years...great car. Slow as hell, huge inside, best seats ever. I figure that if Rover could come back and hit it big with the Range Rover, Peugeot could do it with their modern cars.
