Things you learn

This is an early Renault 4. They were everywhere in France at one time and were commercially much more successful than the self consciously weird 2CV. Note the simple ventilation arrangements. Open a flap,air comes in.

This looks to be another example.


It’s not. It’s an R3. Same car, smaller engine so that it could be 3 CV or French tax horsepower. It didn’t catch on because nobody wanted it known that they were so financially challenged that they had to save a few francs on road tax.

I didn’t know that.
