    I'm guessing it was a white Juvaquatre sedan from Victoria..?

    I didn't see it but I think I know of it.

    That website is obviously geared to harvest advertising revenue rather than provide accurate information.

    One day I'll write my own version for people to rip to bits.......

    But just to correct one of their points. The Juva was a direct copy of the Opel Kadett, a monocoque construction car. Renault knew that he was infringing the Budd patents for monocoque construction, but ignored all their approaches, before being taken to court in Germany – where he lost and was forced to pay royalties for the use of Budd technology.

    It didn't matter if Louis pinched the design because he ended up in prison anyway for apparently colluding with the German army.

    There's quite a history there! What WOULD you do if occupied? There were plenty of others in his boat, thinking of the families Michelin and Peugeot, and I imagine plenty of others. What did Bugatti do for example. Those mentioned here weren't beaten to death in prison. My suspicion is that Louis (keep it masculine ) wasn't much loved and maybe had run out of friends. It is written that the workers did plenty to sabotage what was produced - less torque on a nut here, a blockage there. LR, as a Frenchman, wouldn't have much liked his situation. I think I'm right in saying that the Renault family only lost its last law suit about the nationalisation a couple of years ago. It's a sorry story, that's for sure.

    Simon, if you have things to write, please do....

    Cheers
