      Has the CX landed its rear on the stone?

        Neat find. They seem a bit proud of those cars though...

          Holy crap, that 'lil Volvo is sexy! I've never thought that about a Volvo before - besides some of the really old ones.

          As far as I know, we never got any of those down here either. But it doesn't mean that someone somewhere didn't import one, of course.

            480 turbo.... even i havent seen many of those for a long time!!!

            that big citroen is awesome too.... i think its called the BX over here, or it was when it was built

            that 480 tho, probably one of my favourite cars, my mums friend used to have one in black, looked epic. the C30 is supposed to be the reincarnation, but without pop up lights, it isnt

              There will be no trouble getting parts for that CX in Dallas then. Shame its not the turbo with the unique Michelin tyres!

                  Nah was the CX, the BX is a bit of monstrousity.


                  Like the 480 myself, so far away from the blandness of the 440,460 (having owned 2 440's).

                    That thing kept them in business . ... Just. People were fed up with the quirkyness, high servicing costs and miserable reliability. BX overcame some of those problems.

                      Translation: People were fed up with the Frenchness. The BX fixed it by containing less Frenchness.

                        The 504 coupe is a lovely car, sure they are crap, but they look marvellous. And they are pretty much the best drivers cars Peugeot ever made (for the brief period in which the cars actually worked), am I correct?

                            Does look better in GTi guise, I rememner in the mid nighties or neighbour had a rather nasty red BX, although he was very helpful when I had go to work he didn't giving me a jump start when it was cold. We did have a Montego at the time so it was not much of a benchmark when ot came to realibility.

                                It was because of the suspension system. The US managed to get the DS and SM minus some features like the directional headlights due to regulations. But when the CX came out, there was a ban on cars with height adjustable suspension for whatever reason. The suspension was the strongest suit of the CX and there would be no reason to sell it here without it. But there must have been gray imports because there were a lot on sale on Ebay once. They were all the less quirky mid to late 80's models though.

                                        ^I've also seen a 2CV in that area and an Alfa Spider.

                                        Also, in the neighborhood right at coit and campbell, there were 2 of the 1000 1996 Corvette Grand Sports.
