    Default Froggies on US TV

    I was watching Seinfeld (The Betrayal) tonight and noticed that there was a 505 parked outside the apartment. Looks like a Series II with those wheels, and of course has the US headlights, side lights and massive bumpers.

    "All of its cars from the 1.1 litre 205 through the ugly duckling 309 to the 2.2 litre 505 GTi had a rightness and a righteousness about them that turned every humdrum drive into a journey. Someone, I once wrote, in the bowels of Peugeot understands handling and how a chassis should feel." - Jeremy Clarkson

    I remember years ago watching some stupid US movie that was so terrible I've no idea what it was, anyway the crooks were driving a black DS21, I remember the shot when the crooks ran out of the bank (or what they were robbing) jumped into the Cit and the camera zeros onto the rear wheel under the spats and the sound of wheel spin come through the speakers and the car takes off. I thought to myself "typical Yanks"

    There was a 2CV in a car chase in For Your Eyes Only, and I think some Pug 504's.

    Default Peugeots on the big screen

    one can not forget the Pugs in the film RONIN with Robert DeNiro. The chase scenes in France are brilliant

    Yes, seeing an XM airborne was cool

    Funny watching the 406 wriggling around as it tries to slide, but just can't match the beauty and grace of the M5
