On the other hand, there are some important automobile manufacturers for which we are still waiting for a complete history: Darracq, Mors, Talbot, Delaunay Belleville, etc.
If you are interested by automobile history stay tuned, things may evolve in a near future...
To stay alert, here are three examples of obscure French cars.
Who remember the Arista? Not the ones built by Raymond Gaillard in the 50s-60s but the ones built in a small workshop located 140 boulevard Pereire in Paris from 1912 to end of December 1913 when the company was declared in bakrupcy.
The founder of the automobiles Arista was Pierre-Aristide Ruffier. In 1912 no less than four different models where proposed: a 6 HP priced 2500 F., a four-cylinder 8 HP for 4000 F., a 10 HP for 5000 F. and a 12 HP.
What about the HL built in Saint Cloud? Voiture automobile légère, the factory... well, the workshop was located quai du Président Carnot but who was the owner of this small society ? Interesting car with what is looking as front independent suspensions.
The last example is this Bedelia like car built by a certain Henri Dupuy from l'Ile-Bouchard in the department of Indre & Loire.
