Very quickly, is it a Panhard?

Not had any chance to do any research but going on what I believe was a Panhard trademark 'bullet' grille

Bet I'm totally wrong but what a lovely cute little car 8-)

Spot on Jim. The model according to the photo is A Panhard DYNA Cabriolet, although at the moment I can't find where I got it from :-D
I think its a DYNA X

The Panhard DYNA Z which followed also got the occasional 2-tone treatment

I think this one is quite expressive too, another french 2-tone this time a Simca Aronde. Doesn't look the happiest chappie to me :-D

:lol: :-D

The front of that Aronde is so expressive, just like the Citroen Ami.. They both wear a very determined look...

The Ami always looks like it's concentrating really hard on something. Eyebrows furrowed and tongue to the side of the mouth...

The Aronde is saying 'I'm well hard, don't be put off by the ice cream disguise. I'm a fighter!'

And its' "eyes" are yellowing bruises from the previous fight it had. "If you think I look bad you should see the other guy!".

You don't see them very often, but I challenge anybody not to smile back at the car!

Now if you saw a car with a 2-tone interior like this

Image

It may lead you back to a former incarnation from the early 60's, with what could be interpreted as a "blank look" on its "face"

Anyone fancy a guess if you can follow my thinking...?
