French carmaker Peugeot will hold an exhibit at the Peugeot Aventure Museum in Sochaux showcasing eight Peugeot 106 models.

The Peugeot 106 will celebrate its 30th anniversary this September which makes it a “youngtimer eligible as a collector car,” says Peugeot.

A large gathering with the Team Rally Club and the 106 S16 Club will be held in the museum too, according to the company where all Peugeot 106 owners will be welcome.

The 106 was designed to allow the brand to expand and strengthen its foothold in the small city car segment in the European market.

It came with a transverse-mounted engine and came in three-door models followed by the five-door variants.

Peugeot’s 106 models had several series including the "Roland Garros” and “Zenith,” the famous 106 Kid and its jean seats, the very fun 106 Cartoon presented by Droopy, the elegant “Inès de la Fressange,” or the Enfant Terrible.
