I'd say don't go by a chart. Stand over them, ride them at least around the block. That Peugeot looks big but then, we don't know how big you are. If it was me and you like vintage bikes (which is to say, I like vintage bikes), I'd pick the Peugeot over the Gran Prix. Pick one with alloy wheel over steel unless you are willing to replace them. Think about the kind and amount of riding you intend to do. The longer distance and faster you want to ride the more important it will be that the bike be lighter and more responsive and that the components work well. If your typical ride will be a few miles then pick the one that looks coolest to you, provided it works and you fit, of course.
Real cyclists use toe clips.
With great bikes comes great responsibility.
Honking a car horn is a privilege, not a right.
