Blister In The Sun: 1985 Peugeot 505S Wagon

This next car comes as a tip from Johnny Bouncewell who writes: This state is full of strange old cars that don’t rust away but instead get fried by the sun. This one would take a serious Francophile to restore but hey, how many French five door wagons are still out there with the proper gearbox? Find this 1985 Peugeot 505S Wagon offered for $2,000 in Los Lunas, NM via craigslist.
