    Those seats you have in some of your Australian 504s are pretty odd I have to say.

    I guess when you're so conditioned to a particular set of seats...

    A legacy of the fact that they were assembled by Renault Australia, I think...

    Looks like the right one for a 76 model, the revised style didn't come out until 1977.
    The best one is the similar looking metal one from the early cars.

    Ah, the perils of driving on over-regulated roads!

    By the way, 'rambo would like to know if the grille is original...

    FLA was my first solo plane, DAQ was the warrior i did most hours in, FLV was the hotrod warrior if i remember right, and the biggest, fastest thing i ever flew was the Arrow IV PZY, a real plane with wheels that you pick up and everything! One day i will return to the skies, by that time all the planes will probably be running Renault diesels.
