    In "the Baron", which they sometimes screen overnight, there is a black 403 that regularly pops up.

    Little Nicolas on Holiday on SBS today.
    Not a bad comedy set in the 60's about a family on their seaside holiday.
    About every french car plus a H van of the era.

    I don't know if this was done in that movie, but if you look at a couple of other movies from the time, such as Jack Thompson in Petersen, they conspicuously drive an R12 and an R16.

    Then you look at the credits, to find "Cars supplied by Renault Australia". Possibly the same for Scobie Malone.

    Off the top of my head, the Day of the Jackal was set in 1965, but you could easily see 504s in it.

    Default Maigret ABC

    Maigret on ABC at 9.30 tonight....plenty of traction avant action a couple of 203's (Taxi, ambo) and a few early Renaults.

    Odd part is seeing Rowan Atkinson of Mr Bean fame as Inspector Maigret, speaking in English.

    Very enjoyable spotting the cars

    The new Maigret show on BBC First (Foxtel) has a great spread of Fifties French vehicles. Several Traction's of various models and a splattering of Pug 203's. All in very good nick by the look of it. Very nice.

    The actual show isn't too bad also with several actors with mostly comedy past roles playing Parisian cops or newspaper reporters etc. Quite watchable.. Not aware of a date for the second of the series as yet, but the first should be re-run soon-ish no doubt also.
    Maigret is being played on the ABC currently. An episode was on one night just recently.
    Several Tractions, they are the chosen vehicle for his unit it appears. A few 203 Pugs and a 4CV taxi spotted
