    The general rule with old cars and breakdowns is - the part that breaks will be none of the spares you are carrying.

    As others mentioned a good review and replacement of known consumable parts prior is a good idea.

    Have a cx25ie auto;several trips to Queensland and Victoria;took nothing except lhm ran blissfully. On the other hand went to Victorian sitin many years ago in an id19 with the boot full of everything but the kitchen sink;didn't open the boot. The lesson is if the car is well maintained you don't need anything except yourself;relax and enjoy,Andy.

    Does it have an old fashioned distributor with points? Sometimes it is easier to have a complete spare which you know works, with points correctly adjusted and just put the whole new one in if you are having issues.

    That's exactly what I do with long Renault trips - made up Ducellier in a box, with leads.
