    Please answer YES or NO.
    Details are optional.
    But I would love to hear your [hi]story.

    I'll go first.
    (And, I'll tabulate the entries).

    YES.


    Allow me to editorialize:

    I owned and drove a 1974 R12 gordini, in early 1989.
    The leather seats were real. The French architecture was there.
    It had a hood scoop, and it was asymmetrical. Typical of
    a Renault classic.

    Everything about this car felt "unique", in a weird way.
    It was wonderful. Better than a Ford Pinto, by far!

    It wasn't a race car, but it had a sports car feel to it.
    Its 113 Horsepower was enough for this light car.
    All 1565 cc could be felt, when I mashed down on the throttle.

    But all good things must come to an end.

    I had to get rid of it, due to front wheel bearing failure.
    The rear axle of a 1967 Volkswagen Van used the same bearing,
    or so I thought. So did "Import Motors", of Eureka, California..

    Alas, French is off by a little - not much - but enough...
    to be neither US nor metric.

    But I did get to enjoy the R12 gordini for a little while.
    I wish I still had it. But I couldn't get parts for it.
    So, off to the scrap yard it went.

    YES - Two Savannas with the 7 seat pack - until they stopped making them - now have Zafrias three so far

    Yep, I owned a 1967 Renault back in the day and what I remember most about it was that it needed a front end alignment because I had to steer left to go straight....:eek:

    I'm green.

    If I could afford parts (and I'm a mechanic), I'd still
    have a Renault.

    Alas, now all I can afford is a GMC Denali. :rolleyes:
