Random # 175: Renault R4 Wagon
Hand on heart, UMPH is not urine-taking when he says he loves this Renault R4 wagon. Everything about it - its Moke-simple styling, sliding windows, pop-up ventilation and one-piece front-hinged bonnet - is the essence of practicality itself! No wonder they enjoyed such a long production run, with Wikipedia listing manufacture as having been from 1961 to 1992 (until 1994 in Slovenia). They've even spawned a retro-version, the imaginatively named Renault 4 managing not to disrespect the original too much.
|What do we think, people? Has it captured the original's style and uniqueness?|
