French Cars

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!

For example…

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?!

  1. French cars are exempt from any pro–European sentiments. My Dad's relatively new Peugeot is recalled at least every 12 months for things to be fixed. I think his indicator stick fell off at one point, and the CD player decided not to play the things, but eat them.

  2. I should probably point out that I loved the fact that the guy who wrote the article managed to get in so much anti–frenchness into what could have been simply a review of the technical merits of the cars. I was surprised at it but not incredulous to it and whilst I obviously am not supporting the anti–frenchess I am laughing at the surprise that it was in what I was expecting to be a pretty technical article about the cars.
