Cohort Outtake: Traction Avant, American Style; and Traction Arriére, German Style


As a bit of counterpoint to today’s splendid post on the Citroen 15-six, I offer you this American-style Traction Avant, thanks to CC Cohort Benoit. Of course, a real counterpoint would have a rear engine and RWD, a Traction Arriére. Fortunately, Benoit also posted one of those too, and it’s every bit as stunning as this picture.


What a classic shot of a classic car, if there ever was one. And are these two, from roughly the same vintage, not just the perfect representatives of their respective countries?
