There aren't nearly enough French cars on Jalopnik. You know what I've been doing? Drooling over this Ebay ad. I just asked the seller if I can take it for a spin before the auction ends. It's a 1986 Citroën CX 25 GTi Turbo 2 berline ABS with 121k km (75k miles). And yes, I did just buy a Peugeot 205 GTi last week, I… » 8/20/14 4:15pm Yesterday 4:15pm

That wouldn't fix the gazillion € in gas guzzler/CO2 taxes I'd have to pay to register this newly imported car.

Having said all that, it US regulations do reek of a combination of not invented here and a bit of protectionism. The brands you mention, Citroën and Alfa, have consistently built cars that are safer than Chryslers in tests outside of the US. » 8/19/14 2:30am Tuesday 2:30am

As a European it's hard for me to wrap my head around a policeman using a sedan, especially a sedan with a gasoline V8 engine. They all use wagons here. Wagons, or minivans like the pictured Ford. Anyway, like Multipla mentioned, they can be had with a wide variety of engines, including the Focus ST engines and many… » 8/18/14 4:45am Monday 4:45am
