    They sure can't park between the painted lines.

    Proper Paris parking requires bumper to bumper contact. Sometimes with cars too.

    Obviously your limo and escorts to the CDG Harrison?

    ...And in Paris, they also park in the middle of the road, behind the bollards defending the pedestrian crossings.

    By French standards, this is pretty good parking, I'd say.

    Wouldn't want to scratch the C6s.

    That was a pretty clever bit of work by an artist contracted to Airport authority. How he painted the lines under the cars is a closely guarded secret.

    It's almost like this needs to go in the "I can't park!" thread. I can just hear the attitude: "Your mother was a hamster and your father smelled of elderberries! Now go away, or I shall taunt you again!"

    Can you post some pics, Phil?

    I get the first two, but that last one is stumping me a bit. There was a car called the Ghost Pontiac, made in I think '38 for the show circuit . It was bodied entirely of plexiglas. This appears to be the same medium, more modern, of course. The front appears as a later 404, but that body is stretched well beyond any 404 I've ever seen. However, the Chinese Hong-Qui (Red Flag) looked like a 404, and was a limo reserved for Communist Party elite only. All that to get here: is that a Hong-Qui?

    yes it is definitely a 404, and I don't know why I posted it on the Citroen forum. It is made of what looks like plexiglas, and was a one off made for some movie.
    It just happened to be on show down the road from the Citroen Headquarters at 42 Champs-Elysees and thought it worthy of a picture.
    I must have been jet-lagged or something....photographing peugeots....what next? commodores?

    Looks like I over-thought it.
