A R4 would be nice. Sometimes though, doing these cars up with welding etc is a long way round to free mot and tax. I got free tax disc with my last Ser 2 Landy, but boy did it cost in work and parts to get it. There is a 2cv I pass regular on my Highland trips. I keep resisting to go in and make enquiry...........thankfully! Glutton for projects. I'm afraid if it were reasonable price, it would be home with me.

I'd buy a Volvo Amazon. Granted it's not French but you can still buy parts for it. Wouldn't go near a 40 year old French car as I can only get about 60% of the parts I need for a 20yr old one.
I would have a "petit limon" though as I've a soft spot for them since I started one. It's not a car I'd drive on the roads.
