    Yes, I was referring to the powder blue dash colour which I assumed to be original. I prefer that to bathroom green anyway

    It really would look so much better in a circa FX Holden/A40 Devon bathroom greenesque colour :-)

    Does anyone have an actual reference to this matter? A couple of my o/s Renault friends don't know about it.

    Any information most welcome.

    I seem to remember reading about in a Renault history book from the RCCQ library but I'm sure it would be on the WWW for which I shall mount a search. Stand by.

    The initial edge on the floor near the rear door seems to have the checker plate appearance

    No, but it might fit as a mid engine arrangement.

    Now this IS a French factory.... Lunch time of course!

    Does everyone know of the wonderful Doisneau photograph book?

    Love the photo, to say nothing of half empty bottle of red. Great OH+S

    It was/is actually quite a problem

    In the 80's ( haven't tried recently ) one of the better ways to get a feed in France when travelling was to use the 'cafť routiers' - truckies' cafes. The standard deal was you paid equivalent of about 5-10 dollars ( 1980 ones ) and got soup, main course, bread and cheeses and a litre bottle of rough red.

    It was a sobering ( if you'll pardon the expression ) thought to realise that any camion one saw after about 1400 was probably being driven by somebody who had just downed a litre of plonk

    This was reflected in the road toll ( including a good friend of mine )

    Was a bloody good lurk though - the French take their food seriously and it was often a very good feed.

    Correct! Those 'cafť routiers' places were just great.

    Here's another of M. Doisneau's photos, then I'd better let the thread get back to topic!

    Here's a nice colour combo for a Juva.

    Jean-Claude and Marasca obviously think so too..

    The astute observer will of course notice the new-school wipers fitted for the retro effect, nice touch.

    Same colour scheme as the ex-George Cook R10S, standard Commonwealth Government white roof over deep red.

    Nice car. I imagine the lights are up to the car's performance! Paint looks a bit too glossy for my taste, but that IS getting picky.

    And a Simca Vedette behind it......

    John I love the book, from what I remember (without looking it up) didn't he claim to leave Renault before 2 ww yet photos were obviously taken after. Note the half bottle of red for each workers lunch. M. Doisneau's photos are a great historical account of the Renault factory prewar.

    Yes, a half bottle of plonk but the culinary offerings must have been somewhat limited.
    Each were equipped with a fork only, no spoon or knife.
