Definitely "enthusiasts" only.

Looks like quite a few Renault 4CVs in there (according to Wikipedia) It's like a cross between a Morris Minor and a VW Beetle

You're right Boyd1963, they are Renault 4cv.
They've been very successful in the 1950's.
There is one completely restored in my father's Barn. I can get some pictures if anyone wishes.

For thoses in this thread who have sense of humour:
Why don't Scotsmen get their BMW glass tinted?
They don't believe the light goes out when they close the door

(I know, they don't have a fridge neither)

Hi Pascal

Let's see some pictures of how the 4cv should look.

You'll have to wait until I get back to my dad's. I'll then take pictures and post them I promise.
It is exactly as shown on the wikipedia link you gave:

Doing that to old classic cars is a crime, even if they are French
