      Is that also a Peugeot sign on the far end of the building?

      Yeah, I noticed that too, but Peugeot is not listed on the back of this card as one of the makes they were selling. Perhaps they had given up the Peugeot franchise, or just didn't bother to list it on the card.

      Nice 356, but I wonder why they don't race one of the makes they sell instead?

      I'd love to jump in there and test the Giulia Berlina, the 2002 and the 510 back-to-back.

      But wouldn't a Peugeot sign not show a yellow lion on a blue background?

      Martin van Duijn You are correct.

      That appears to be a bear rather than a lion, and specifically the Berlin coat of arms:

      en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coat_of_arms_of_Berlin

      I can't find (in my brain or Google) any instance of it being used as a car logo. Perhaps the dealership used it as their own logo, and to convey the "German-ness" of the place (as if the name "Autohaus" didn't do the trick...).

      Would be awesome if they were still in the same shop, selling everything from a $12k base Versa sedan to an M6 for ten times that.
