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?

All iPhone images, except those of the new pretender, which were presumably uploaded to the web to stimulate interest.
