    From your photo the Perth car has white tyres, the image I posted has black ones. I am not sure where "mine" resides but the image can be found here - https://www.carmagazine.co.uk/featur...rbo-to-megane/

    So you can blame it on Louis for being one of the men who started the car commute and traffic hour congestion !!!!!

    Better than sitting in traffic with the car, rather than horse and buggy, imagine how big a hole all those farts would make in the ozone layer. Perhaps he was the first greenie

    The Renault factory museum has one original vehicle and a number of replica's made by factory apprentices. I have seen them side by side and pretty hard to spot the difference unless up quite close. The museum staff offered a few rides in the replica's but only one couple got to sit in the original.
