Peugeot tribute to Peter Falk / Columbo

Colombo homage
Adland: 

Aw, sweet. I guess I'm not the only one who misses Columbo/Peter Falk (so much I had to make a post in his characters voice), so does Peugeot who sends him off with this homage.

The ad says; for sale xxx miles etc - grand sentimental value. (I don't know French so if anyone wants to make an exact translation, be my guest)

    Thanks! So I got the gist of it. Great sentimental value, indeed.

    Also, I love that car. *wipes sentimental tear*

    Cool car. I liked Peter Falk. Columbo was good but I liked some of the wacky characters he played, i.e., Cab Driver in It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World (1963) and others that my too caffeinated tired brain can't recall.

    What kind of over formal dictionary does google use? I got the same result, "sentimental" by not taking it's advice of passing thru "sentim" untranslated and I already knew "Gde" is abbreviation for "Grande" even it google did not.
