20/2! 20/2!

No, not a Peugeot. Been there, done that.

Toyota Estima hybrid.

What’s the best selling electric car in the world right now?

16/2! 16/2!

Today is brought to you by Volvo.

Things you didn't know Things you didn't know

Two things in fact.

15/2! 15/2!

This is a day brought to you by Focke-Wulf and the Ta-152 which exotically we see here in RAF markings. For reasons unclear (edit: it was because of a change in policy in 1944 to name planes after their designers) it was named after its designer, Kurt Tank, rather than its builder.

14/2! 14/2!

St Valentine’s Day, but let’s go with Valentindagen or alla hjärtans dag because today has a Swedish influence.

A Cactus, but milder A Cactus, but milder

Many of us will know of the Citroën C4 Cactus which marked a return to the Citroën oddness of old. Like so, with optional Air Bumps.

12/2! 12/2!

We could see something of an Amazonian persuasion but let’s take to the air instead.

Two stroke Saturday or Leaving the car behind Two stroke Saturday or Leaving the car behind

How was your Saturday? Mine involved two strokes, hydrodynamic transmissions and an exploration of abandoned infrastructure.

10/2! 10/2!

What? You’ve never heard of the Pegaso Z-102? You have now. All pictures by yours truly at Rétromobile 2015 in Paris.

Things we didn't know Things we didn't know

Yesterday we met Norbert Riedel’s two stroke starter motor for the Me 262.

New Stratos! New Stratos!

Sadly, you can’t actually have one. No original airworthy examples survive although there are replicas.

Lotto number come up? Piggy bank fuller than expected? Bitcoin sold at the right time? It may be time to buy your first Delahaye.

Things that used to be very fancy Things that used to be very fancy

Dashes, particularly from the Art Deco era and those influenced thereby. Mostly by Delahaye with added De Soto and Delage. Bonus Cotal gear levers in a couple of cases.

5/02! 5/02!

Must admit I had never heard of this. It was a V8 version of the 501 (no, not that either) and sold in its hundreds. Various restyles and renamings ensued without enormous success and it was succeeded by the “New Six” which was quite the success and sold in its hundreds of thousands.

A thing rarely seen A thing rarely seen

Auto Union 1000 like this (except brown) trundled past me this morning. Seemed to be running just fine, but you could smell the emissions of a two stroke for a couple of minutes after...

4/02! 4/02!

Time for a 402! Non, pas une Peugeot. A Москвич..er Moskvich 402.

3/2! 3/2!

Time for the Peugeot 302?
