Writing about web page http://cars.msn.co.uk/carnews/ttworsteverfrenchcarsmay06/
I'm not actually going to pass any judgement myself over French cars…rather I followed a link from the MSN Home page (see above) which was called the Top 10 worst ever French cars.
What surprised me was the sheer bile in the article…the hatred…the anger…I loved it!
Yes, it’s true. In between striking and surrendering, the French do occasionally build cars if only to have something to burn next time they decide to riot.
Ugly, plasticky and with a resale value which retreated faster than a French soldier, the Tagora bombed, selling fewer than 20,000 examples from 1980 and 1983.
Despite being powered by the 2CV’s wheezy two–cylinder engine and about as attractive and lovable as a ginger stepchild, the Ami was France’s best selling car for a number of years. All of which goes to prove the French shouldn’t be allowed to buy cars, let alone build them.
Does nobody remember the lessons they learned from Europe Day?!
