Oh yes please...I could absolutely see that in my driveway.

Never had a shot of a 126, which I think is a bit of a glaring omission...

This week on Friday amongst the lots at the South West Vehicle Auctions Classic Sale at Poole is this litttle French number....with the tartan trim seats!

https://www.swva.co.uk/classic-car/renault-4-gt-l-1986/

Quite a lot of classic auctions going on, I do like a bit scan through the catalogues and results, but haven't taken the plunge and bought anything as yet!

Some interesting cars in the Poole one... A nice looking Rover P6 and a CX will be worth keeping an eye on...

I used to be a regular buyer/seller at the Leominster Brightwell's auction, just been looking at their online bidding set up, it's better and gives more information than we used to get on site.

Select a picture, I looked at a 2008 C5 automatic, and it gives a series of all round and interior photos and an engineer's check list of the car's condition.

I used to dream of owning a 400/4 when I was a teenager... Still a staggeringly good looking bike today :)

I rebuilt one once Jim. A bit of a pain to say the least. The wiring was interesting with wires changing colour half way to there destination! I've not seen that before.

I've always lusted after and will probably own one day, a Velosolex. I think they are brilliant and there is quite a cottage industry evolved regarding spares. Another French oddity. :-)

Now that is very French :D

I started off my motorised two-wheel career with an NSU Quickly... Would love one again too!
