    Yes the one by the fence is a Honda judging by the emblem, but to me, the description "sleep dark saloon" more accurately describes the one in the garage, to the right of the Gordini, with the boot open, lines suggest it is an older vehicle.

    Looks a bit jag or Daimler-ish, but certainly warrants further comment!

    You can do that to your 12 too.
    Just ditch the fuel tank you've got and replace it with the tank from a R12 wagon.
    Cut a hole in the nearside back guard for the filler neck, take your bumper bars off and everyone will think you have a Gordini.
    Well, until they get within 100 metres of the car or look inside or under the bonnet.
    Saw an ad on Ebay today for some R12 Gordini stripes so you can even add these for the effect.

    And rid my self of the convenience of never having to worry about which side my fuel filler is on! Never My 12 will never end up a Gordini, maybe a Gordontie. Gornopie? Gordonti? Ah! Gordonoti.

    Amazing, besides the bull bar and lights it just looks exactly as I sold it. How's it running? Gearbox syncros were a little slow.
    Memories of standing there filling that 90 litre tank. I remember in Adelaide once I'd just filled it up and went in to pay and the guy looked at me, looked at the screen, looked at the car and said, the blue car? I said yes and he looked at the screen again and again at the car and said the blue car. 3 times he did this before he let me pay and leave.

    In hindsight I should have said mate it's only a Renault 12 there's no way it took 90 liters your gauge is up the creek.

    Dave, in order to start a new one you must first finish the last one.

    You are so right and I'm going to have to put this Gordini away safely until the Dacia is finished.

    Ray and John,
    Such was my taste back in the day I bought an Austin Cambridge wagon [404 look alike]. Princely sum of $300 with a burnt valve thrown in. Our sales wallahs didn't want it.
    Served me well as a hack, my 250 Honda Elsinore slid in the back easily. Sad day when I moved it on to one of our 'rare' parts blokes.

    Sorry for stealing the thread.
