    I found this for sale in France Renault NN1

    The translator states it still has original paint. These wouldn't come up for public sale too often, let the stampede begin..

    I'll have to discuss this problem you seem to have. The collective noun for Renaults, coined by us years ago, is 'an insufficiency of Renaults'. Like a 'mob of kangaroos' or a 'murder of crows'. Mustn't get started - I love collective nouns. Then 'a synergy of dolphins' is a nice one.

    I wonder what the equivalence is between the number of 4-cylinder Renaults versus the number of 6-cylinder or 8-cylinder Renaults..... I think it'd be at least four to one per 8-cylinder example. The NN1 is a four of course.

    Now you got me thinking.

    That NN1 has quite a long bonnet, I think it should be able to accommodate a straight eight

    No no, there is never enough Renaults. It's just that an NN is sloooww. Like may be 65 kph. Simon will know but it ain't fast. Bet an 8 won't go in it but a Chrysler flat 6 might.

    The engines sit quite a long way back, with the dynostart sticking out quite a way. I'd think you might get a 6 in but I'm not so sure about an 8. Correct thinking though....

    You should also look at just how light the chassis might be too! I saw the three-axle trans-Africa chassis a few years ago. Good grief......

    I was thinking of 59Floride, with his recent interest in flat 8's and longstanding interest in Renault's

    Me too, precisely, but I think he has more sense... Or perhaps

    Such good intentions there! I agree with your direction but he needs a heavier chassis than an NN.

    Don't know what all this talk is about, I've hung up my welding mask, spray gun and sewing machine. No more restorations for me. The big Yankee engine is just for a garage ornament, nothing more .
