1986 Renault 4Review
R4 — Accelerated really well when empty. At 100 it felt as it is doing 170. When braking, a prayer usually helped. Built from paper thin sheet metal, so rust really loved it. Sometimes its parts could just fell off, but nothing that could not be fixed with some duct tape. A lot of space inside, it was child's play to load it up with five big potato sacks, some apples and complete family. Very nice suspension and clearance, so it handled crappy roads really well. No modern mumble jumble inside, everything was designed to do one and only one thing well. Its gear lever design is still not matched today. Simple mechanics that could be fixed by appropriate hammer.
