Albeee so why do you enjoy french cars so much?

Is it their useless design or their terrible mechanical prowess?

LOL, why the hate? uMad?

I don't like all French cars, but I like many. My uncle had a Renault when I was very little, and another uncle had a Citroen. You tend to like what you grew up liking as a kid. Plus, Citroens, particularly the SM, was large, heavy, comfy, fast car, very advanced for its time, ungodly complex, and requires very specialist maintenance. Kinda like that one car I'm very obsessed about...

I just think a lot of French cars suck

I mean I just find a lot of the time they are overly complex without being actually useful...or that they just look awful

I am putting these on hold, surprisingly. I don't want to use up all the good material just yet. Plus I'm not done sorting through my trip photos. You would know what it's like to take your sweet time sorting and posting pics...

Exactly. That's what you think. In context of their time and place, they are perfectly suitable, useful, and reasonably stylish. They don't make sense to you in the same way large, slow American cars don't make sense in other countries.
