    Default Has the Renault 12 been deposed?

    While walking to the station today in the glorious Inner West, I spotted a white, early model Peugeot 307. The back of the car was covered in a multitude of protest stickers ranging from anti-nuclear messages to calling for land right for gay whales. It was a truly diverse and amusing read.

    Has the Peugeot 307 replaced the Renault 12 as the vehicle of choice for students and protesters?

    I think R12's covered in stickers were using a ploy to cover up the rust and stop the body falling apart. Could the 307 need the same cure?

    Don't remind us of these French spies, I'm still very bitter about the whole RW affair.

    I was driving a red BX when the French Government resumed nuclear testing in the Pacific in the Nineties, and remember all four tyres on my car being let down at the SFS parking area. Could have been because the rego number was JC XXXX.

    I don't believe deposed as such, just that a student today wouldn't know what to do with a choke knob or a manual radio
