Bijou - Slough built, 2CV based, GRP body. There were not that many to start with (heavy and dear IIRC), and there are only a handful left now.

Some very good pictures on this page, yet more added to the collection i have saved :lol:

I love the top post with the Amis, they look great.

The grey/green Xantia on ZX wheel trims looks very tidy 8-)

The Bijou is a very rare car now, was it something like 200 were built, somehting like that, a very small number if i remember correctly. Its an odd looking thing.

The 4 door SM if fantasic

It is a factory car the SM, in as much as its not been self-made. I think these were built by Henri Chapron. It does have a proper name, one which i can't think of at the moment.

Edit: I think its called the Opéra. Ive just realised Steve has already said that :lol:
