    Looks like a custom made font, just for Peugeot

    Don't worry, I've learnt my lesson. Now to "detention"...

    I will always try a google search first.

    It's a "private" font for Peugeot use only I looked all over the web and fonts pages to find it, not even a cheap rip-off version.

    A shame really, that font would have been great for chapter headings in a document I'm writing .. hmm subliminal Froggy-ness

    Izza, I couldn't find the "80s" Peugeot font either.

    you could vectorize the image into seperate letters, but i dont know how to do this. Or, you could cut each letter out indervidually and have a small image for each, then paste the images together in Photoshop to make words. Problem with this is that the more images you use for text, the longer the page takes to load.

    Phasis, there isn't really enough detail in the pictures to make a half-decent font (I've had to create/modify TrueType fonts before, it's very difficult to get them looking nicely) ... though copying out the individual digits might work for web stuff at least..

    (just need to find a similar graphic for the 106 and 806, and then wait for Peugeot to release an 905 .. then we have the whole set )

    You could always use Photoshop to run a path over each letter, then make a vector path. Or perhaps if you were really ambitious, use the pic as a layer in Autocad, then trace it, but hey, Im not going to do it, I dont have 3 weeks spare

    I think for the sake of small headings for this forum it would be easier just to make a montage of the individual letters.
