YAK Car Pic of the Day

Ami 6 2 3

After spending last evening out having some good times with some good friends, I got home and decided to give myself five minutes to find the oddest car most of you have probably never seen before. And I came up with this 1963 Citroën Ami 6. Built by the quirky French manufacturer from 1961 to 1978, the Ami’s total production output was over 1.8 million units. And still, you’ve probably never seen one — because they weren’t officially exported to the U.S., probably rightly so. I mean, really? Which is what I’m guessing that woman in the pic above is saying to herself: “Really?”

    Citroen should have stuck with their funky little 2CV.

    If you have seen these cars it was probably in Vietnam during the war years.
    Different but still identifiable as a Citroen ten miles away.

  • Citroen are always innovative and design oddballs. I remember seeing these 30 yrs ago, complete with selective yellow headlamps. When even French cars were unique and different.
