Iconic French Cars

Iconic French cars

The Citroën DS 19.  A legendary French car introduced in 1955 at the Paris Motor Show.  Classic & Sports Car magazine brought together a judging panel that of well known car designers and they voted the Citroën DS as the most beautiful car of all time.  It was always cool seeing one of these when I lived in Paris.
The Citroën 2CV (French: "deux chevaux"), another legendary and iconic French car.  Introduced in 1948 people mocked it for It’s utilitarian looks.  The Dutch, the Germans, and others nicknamed it “The Duck” because of its looks and even Citroën came to embrace the name.  It was cool seeing these around Paris when I lived there.
