In total, 8 million versions were produced between the years 1961-1992. It was well liked due to its spacious design, and is considered by some to be the ... Check out this car!

Here is the first car I took a picture of during my 7 months in Europe, a red 1970s Citroën 2CV found in Lisbon Portugal, the first stop of over 45 spots visited in total during the adventure.I love that roll out canvas sunroof, and the parking style. I almost feel like this car was parked perhaps before a wild night out on the town and forgotten.2CV ... Check out this car!

On the drive out of Boulder on my way into the mountains, I spotted an endangered car out of the corner of my eye parked outside the Rocky Flats Lounge. Thought it might be an AMC Gremlin.Unfortunately at the moment, the roads were crowded in both directions and there wasn't a good spot to pull over and investigate. This week while heading into the mountains again, I made ... Check out this car!

We came across the Trabant 601 Universal in Berlin that has a nice looking sun visor on it.

From the front angle it almost looks ... Check out this car!
The 1968 Lincoln Continental found in Berlin was a popular Endangered Car, and the post was well received. And for good reason, the two-door car is magnificent looking. Gigantic coupes are wild. So much room inside, humongous trunks for storage, and lots of power up front.So here we have another version, this time the 1979 Lincoln Continental Coupe in a wonderful two ... Check out this car!
