Introduction

The French are good at cars. Despite what Daimler would have you believe, a French chap called Edouard Delamare-Deboutteville drove a car of his own design 6km in Normandy, in 1884. That's one year before Carl Benz came up with his first oil-burner on wheels. That of course was back when the roads were narrow, bumpy and congested, going any distance was an uncomfortable experience, fuel was rare and expensive, and finding a reliable powerplant was a major challenge.
