Sweet looking cars. I’ve never seen a Citroen BX, but I’ve seen a few Mercedes-Benz SLC. Where is this located?
Somewhere in Australia. The sign that says “4P” means that you can park there for up to 4 hours.
Somewhere in Melbourne, inner suburbs 😉
And a lover of pillar louvers!
Both of these are cars I hated the designs on initial impression, but enjoy them both quite a bit now. That silver green is a perfect match for them.
Loved the BX when it came out. The design was extremely good. First one I saw was a French tourist. When I showed interest he flipped the bonnet ( hood ) to show me the “works”. I hadn’t seen a plastic bonnet with strengthening ribs before.
Years later I was still looking at the used ones in classified ads. Always had a list of all the parts that had been replaced – usually a long list…..
What is the building used for that the cars are parked in front of? It doesn’t really look like an apartment building, but more like some sort of small business.
Some kind of light industrial building is my guess. In Inner Melbourne neighborhoods you see them everywhere.
The only Citroen I’ve ever seen here is a gray Deux Chaveau I see from time to time in the neighborhood. Never any of these cool mod ones.
These cars have very little in common. It’s a huge contrast: V8 versus L4, rwd versus fwd, heavy German versus light French, prestige versus popular, traditional versus hp suspension, classic versus Modernist style.
And this morning I snapped an immaculate beige W116 in the traffic
Great shot, Don! That color is definitely somewhat unusual, my little brother had a 1980 VW Jetta in it (must have been the era for it) that was quite attractive.
Those two cars are quite different from each other in almost every other possible way…..
