Old French Car
I love old cars. This one is presently on display in the Peugeot (a French car manufacturer) window shop avenue de la Grande Armée (16th arrondissement). It is called a "Coach" 402, was first introduced at the 1935 automobile exhibit and was then "mass" produced 75 172 times! Imagine, it was one of the first cars to have an inside heating with defrost capabilities and enough room on the dashboard to install a... radio set! Pricing would start at 23 900 French Francs for a regular model (that is roughly 16 000 € / 19 500 $).
