    Spot on; initially called a Chrysler Alpine when it went on sale (or the Simca 1307 in Europe), it's name changed to Talbot when Chrysler sold its European subsidiary to Peugeot.

    You beat me to it - Talbot/Chrysler Alpine. My parents had one from before I was born up until 1st August 1977 when my dad bought a VW Passat L. It was orange with black vinyl seats and a black vinyl roof. I can remember sitting in the back on summer holidays wearing shorts and getting stuck to the seat.

    Glad my dad saw sense and bought his Passat - his second VW (he had bought a Beetle back in the late 1950s), and from 1977 onwards it was VAG only.

    Out of interest, the Alpine and the Passat both had similar profiles:

    From the days when cars were designed with a set square on a Friday afternoon. Thank god for progress. I hear a rumour Talbot may be making a return as a budget brand, probably using some rebadged tat from a place I can't spell. Missing it already ;-)
