I had no idea that the Swedes loved the 404 C so much. There are at least 40 of them there, maybe more. Janne Mellqvist of the Svenska Peugeotklubben sent me a new list that included the registration numbers (license plates) of all 404 C cars now known to their club. Aside from confirming most of the cars from 1989 (meaning most of those owners are still cub members), there were 17 MORE 404 C cars in the list. I will try to match those with photos over time, which should be easy due to having the license plates.
