I've just asked myself " WHICH FRENCH CAR FROM WHICH DECADE IS THE MOST EMBLEMATIC FOR A TRUE PETROLHEAD ? "

First I aimed the times and to me it's been during the 1930's "LES ANNEES FOLLES"

I'm not trying to point anything negative on this but most of the brands I have in mind actually do not exist or produce anything today, why ?

Berliet, Voisin, Delahaye, Delage, Panhard heritage should be revived here and now.

Anyway I can't favor one particularly, but the Talbot may show it most.

  • The Delahaye is beautiful.But I'm fond of the DS!(even if I know that they are later than the "Années Folles")

  • The biggest problem with the French car industry is that they have been self sufficient with mass production's vehicles for too long.

    They have left all the prestige of preWW2 motoring "savoir faire" and let it fall into legend.

    The two main French motoring groups (PSA and Renault) must have look on what we all have lost by letting the Delage, Delahaye.... fade in the past.
