In 1987, my mum ALMOST bought a Peugeot 505. However ever since then, i’ve always had a huge soft spot for that car….because even back then, i really wanted that car. I thought it was beautiful when i was a kid. I loved the weird front lights, and the nicely proportioned design. I still think the car looks really damn good……for its age.
Oddly enough, the car she DID buy instead of the Peugeot 505 was another car that i really wanted…….*drumroll*…….a Sterling 825 SL! Remember those? yeah that’s right, an Acura Legend with a british interior, electronics, and styling…..the first car I ever crashed and the first car I ever lost control of going too fast……fun car to drive, but quite an oddball. I still remember how that car’s steering got SUPER stiff at high speeds (over 90 mph), as if its power steering had failed—-but it was actually just a performance measure. Nice interior…pretty posh for an 80s car.
