YAK Car Pic of the Day

A week or so ago I was speaking with a friend about the proverbial “if I had a blank check, what car would I buy” question. Of course, the banter soon turned to those foreign cars that were never sold in the U.S., and how it would have to be at least 25-years-old in order to be imported without having to meet safety and emissions standards. So I’ve been trying since then to come up with something really different. And here it is: the 1964-67 Panhard 24 (pronounced pan-AR). Panhard was a French manufacturer founded in the late 1800s, its automobile division taken over by Citroën in 1965. The last car with a Panhard name was the ’67 24 which, if you stare at it long enough, certainly looks like something you’d find in a Citroën showroom. With one of these, I bet I’d never pass another one like it on the roads of WNY. Hemming’s Sports & Exotic Car magazine had a great article on the Panhard 24 in the January 2008 issue.
