You're not talking sidemarkers, you're talking simple indicators that some cars have in their fenders. Thats something not related and not mandatory by any law. Those things shown there are effectively a US-thing that ruins way too many cars or at least us-models. BMWs are fitted with those ugly things too. In germany that kind of sidemarkers is not required on normal cars, at least not on something thats smaller than a Pullmann.

The car in question, a 1989 Citroen 2CV6 Special by Hermes was refitted for the 2008 Paris Motor Show.

Is it bad that I recognized it as a 2CV from this picture?

That 2CV rocks.

Also, this was the coolest support vehicle at F1 that wasn't the Merc wagon or the SLS:



And let's admit it: it F1's Merc wagon and SLS were in fabulous metallic chocolate brown, they'd be 110% MORE AWESOME.

I've owned a couple of brown cars in the past. My first car was a 1975 Ford Granada coup?, like this one:


The other was a 1977 Pontiac Firebird Esprit in Brentwood Brown, like this:

(Except my car didn't have a rear spoiler.)

To me. the brown worked on those cars. Not too sure about modern cars, though.

I was just thinking about a car one of my older cousins used to own.

She had a brown 1973 Mk1 Capri with a black vinyl roof and a 2L 4 cylinder and a 4 speed gearbox.

It also had the Rostyle wheels, IIRC. Like this one, except it had four round headlamps instead of the rectangular European ones.


I loved that car. And I would love to own a Mk1 Capri to this day.

(You might say it's "The car I always promised myself," but that'd be corny.)
