Traction Treasure Trove… Somewhere in Asia?

Citroënvie member Larry Lewis in Toronto, ON sent a link to a YouTube video titled; “The Royal Family Classic Car Collection Abandoned !!! This Collection is Unbelievable!”

The almost 8-minute walk-through video was posted on March 24, 2024 by Classic Car Rescue. As of this writing, there has been no disclosure in the comments section as to its location.

Larry says;

“Have a look at this – “Royal Family” is says but which one? I’m guessing Thailand.”

It could be in Vietnam as two of the cabriolets are obviously non-authentic and conversions from sedans were notoriously done in Vietnam.

One white Traction ‘cabrio’ had the logo “Mimi Palace” on the side.  Googling that we were taken to the city of Kolkata in West Bengal, India.

Your guess?
