Peugeot 505s

Angry lion Peugeot grille should have been brought
out for Bastille Day, but alas. This thing parks
on the street, and I'm fairly certain that it moves
every once in a while; the license plates are current
and I see it sometimes on the other side of Magazine.
It's a Peugeot 505s, my guess is 1983-85, mostly
on the odd US market headlights. Maybe diesel.

(Note for my non-US readers, Peugeot hasn't sold
a new car here since the early 90s, Citroen the 70s,
and Renault the Renault Alliance bailout....)

Thanks for the memories. Twenty-four years ago, I totaled a Renault Alliance while showing off for a girl.

There are worse ways to total a car...

There was a Renault Alliance on craigslist from Chalmette for months. They couldn't get rid of it for 500 dollars.
