1972 Renault 16Review
Take Care Of It, And It Will Take Care Of You. — Its a innovative car that handles like a modern car. It has enough power to easily follow modern traffic, without using wast amounts of petrol. It is French, so you have to watch out for rust. But the satisfying sight of all that chrome after a good polish makes it all worth while. It is a very comfortable car that feels more like driving a good sofa, but with the 3 speed automatic gear box, it's fast enough and very fun to drive.
Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
Pros: The feel of the car
