    Happy 120th anniversary Renault

    There's a good French video about the 120 of Renault showing the models who made Renault history.

    Edit: Wrong link, here the correct one. https://www.caradisiac.com/renault-1...ire-167971.htm

    Along with others links to French sites about Renault's 120 years.

    When I was a dadblamed whippersnapper I wanted an R-8 or R-10 Gordini. Cat's meow.

    “Until Louis Renault came along, nobody knew where to put the engine, gearbox and differential.

    “That’s what is revolutionary about my car — it was the first car in the world where the engine, gearbox, prop shaft and diff were in a line.

    “Renault patented that, and he made more money out of that than he did out of making cars.

    “Everyone realised that was the way to go.”

    I vaguely remember my uncle's early 60s Renault Caravelle cabriolet.
