Two more. In '60s and '70s years Citroen DS was called in Spain "Tiburůn" (Shark).

But is this in Spain? (German title speaks of Akropolis, so I'd guess this is in Greece).

... And the number-plate's too small for a Spanish one but about right for a Greek. I've no idea what the Greeks called the DS.

According to the Greek wikipadia: http://www.wikipedia.gr/c/i/t/Citro%C3%ABn_DS_46e4.html it was (if I read it correctly, but I never learned Greek...): βάτραχος (= frog)...

Well anyway it is a DS or a ID, no? We do not list cars under their nicknames :p (except VWs which are quite complicated for their model names)

Indeed they were called "Βάτραχος" which means frog. Actually few people in Greece knows their proper name.

The plate though is confusing. Greek plates of the era were 6 digit number only, while this one looks like 8 digit, 2 letters and 4 numbers with a dash (-) in between, that only came into use after 1970. But this was filmed in 1967.

Of Course, when I said "Tiburon" I only was refering its nickname in Spain at the '60s., not the model of Citroen.

Interesting. In Germany that car is known under the name "frog" or "frogeye":

No wonder why. However only well known cars get nicknames, especially in countries like Greece that are not auto-industry related.

That sounds like a dutch plate untill this year for decades we had variations with either XX-00-XX,00-XX-XX, XX-XX-00 and so on untill this year when we switched to 00-XXX-0... doesn't look very dutch in the extra shots though
