My Granddad (well, Stepdad's dead wife's dad actually, but that's just confusing) had a 504 estate... Cool looking car I reckon.

Just thing for crusing from an illegal oilpipe siphoning to your next 419 scam plot.

WHen did the Fiat 126 variants that flood Poland end their production life?
Stopped making the Polski Fiat 126p (built by FSM) in 2000. Great for sourcing parts for my old 500 and 126 :-)

Ah this is it, the Peugeot Pars:



Might be ancient but I'd probably rather have this than most modern Peugeots...
A 405 with some weird 406/7 hybrid front to it.

Are they still taking orders for T16's scratchchin

Very true, the bumper looks almost the same as the one off the 406. And the grill looks a little like that of the 605. No T16 unfortunately, can only get this with a poxy 1.8 I think frown

Semi-related

Could a company (say Peugeot) sell the rights to a car that wouldn't meet today's safety requirements (Say, 205) to a low volume car marker, or even start there own arm and begin

I can't think of a single sensibly priced car that I would go out and get a loan to buy brand new other than a modern take on a 205 GTi. I'm sure plenty of other PH'ers are with me on this?

In India they sell the old Suzuki Alto (with some very minor changes to the body to at least make it look like it's not 25 years old). Under the name Maruti-Suzuki 800:

we had 3 when I was a kid (had 2 brothers, a sister and usually at least 2 dogs) my dad couldnt turn a good one down if he came across it, we emigrated and my dad sold them to a guy who exported them to africa, it was like having a minibus. Just remebered we also had a 7 seat datsun 280c estate, that was a great car.
