    I'd be shit-scared of scratching the paintwork out on the road.

    The Talbot company ended up being owned by Chrysler- my dad had a Talbot
    Solara in the eighties:

    The badge on the front wasn't the 'T' you see on this page, but the
    Chrysler/Rootes symbol- a thin five-pointed star on a pentagon background:

    I doubt that Talbot ever goes out on the road. Unless a private road
    or driveway. Probably some place like Mr. Gates big cave garage.
    Interesting page you posted the link to. I drove Peugeots from 1969
    through 2003. Both station wagons, the 69 was straight shift on the
    column, and burned high test gas. The 78 was automatic as the wife
    liked it that way.
    I got 25 great driving years out of that beauty. Hardly any repairs
    and the only break work needed was the master cylinder 2 times.

    The only "break" work? Was that when the brakes broke?
