DKW Auto Union 1000S (1961)

DKW came together with a few other smaller manufacturers under the name Auto Union, which later continued as Audi, hence the 4 rings. The motor has 3 cylinders, two stroke, which create lots of blue smoke as it hums along.

Rover 110 (1963)

The P4 or old auntie Rover as she was called, came out with numerous motors – between the 60 and the 110 (HP), between 1949 and 1964. The 110 was the top of the range, and this one has bucket seats in the front, with lots of leather and wood in true English style. […]

Subaru 360 Deluxe (1969)

The very first Subaru, manufactured between 1958 and 1971, reportedly based on the Fiat 500.

BMW 3.0CS 1971

The powerful 3L engine makes for excellent driving on the open road, even if the road handling of the 1970s BMWs was not famous. Its lines make it a real classic, though a true coupé, it is most comfortable for 2 passengers.

Citroen DS23 Pallas (1973)

The mythical DS remains very popular for weddings – a French icon. Still quite revolutionary in many respects, and incomparably comfortable, the shape was built either as an ID or a DS for 20 years, between 1955 and 1975. The Pallas version was more luxurious and the fragrance of the leather adds to its […]

Peugeot 203 Cabriolet (1952)

The 203 was a car for everyone in the 50s and although more expensive the cabriolet version was not quite as elitist as some of the other cabriolets, even if there were less than 3000 built. Its small 1300 engine purrs along, and it handles the road superbly.  Just 2 seats unfortunately.

La 203 était […]

Citroën C4-IX (1931)

Very spacious, this vintage C4 was built between 1928 and 1932. The version IX was the bottom of the range but new upholstery in blue cloth with chevrons quite fitting for Citroen have given it a slightly luxurious air. Ideal for events in the nearby Loiret or the Essonne, but with a relaxed speed […]

Mercedes 220S (1958)

The Ponton Mercedes built between 1953 and 1962 did a lot to restore the position of Mercedes after the war, at a time when everyone expected small utilitarian cars rather than bigger ones.   The 220 was the top of the range with a nice combination of leather, carpet and wood. Nearly 60 years […]
