In a word Yes, I'd love one!
In another word, I didn't get one!! I was outbid excessively even before I got to bid :o The selling price was £6105.00 !!! Unbelievable for an old Renault, but then, it isn't any old Renault :!: :!: :-D

Thats a shame Mick, I could have claimed a "finders fee" for that one :-D Wonder if the successful bidder was an avid viewer of "Classics under £10K"?.

I've never taken to the Jensens, something about the 'bulky' back end puts me off. As for the escort, been there done that!! May have a look at the Xantia posted earlier, but I really should stick with autos!! :)

That has to win an award for the Most Plasticky Interior, surely?
And a not very subtle parts-bin mix of cream and black. :(

For a proper bit of plastic in a nice caramac colour you cant beat a 1984 Triumph Acclaim, of course with the mandatory Feu Orange dangling from the rear view mirror.

Now here is an Original Feu Orange in situ in a 1984 Triumph Acclaim. You can only sit back and admire the brown plastic!

One problem if you do happen to buy what is an increasingly rare original now....the liquid may have turned to gel given the passage of time.

I do like the Karmann Ghia nice example here, not my favourite colour but very presentable.
