1974 Renault 12 Review

Renault 17 — actually was a renault 17, yellow colour. Beautiful car, quite reliable for all original, although suffered some rust. The engine was spritely, and the car was well balanced and nimble through corners although no power steering and clunky gearshift took some getting used too. Parallel parking was very difficult. Excellent fuel economy, and pillarless rear windows looked sweet in summer.

Pros: Looks, Engine, Handling

Cons: Gearshift, No powersteering, rust prone
