    Every day when I wake up I reach up in the darkness with my eyes shut and if I cannot feel anything that resembles a wooden lid I know it will be a good day. No lid today.

    You'd get it delivered here for only $35,000. A 4 litre 6 cylinder with quite a few horses to move it along. Should be a good goer. Pity about the left hand drive. That always puts me off. Nuh I don't want it it's alll yours G.

    Are you sure it is LHD? I'm not quite sure when they changed but the early ones were RHD.

    France has been on the right since Napoleons time. But often the steering was also on the right to aid in getting out of the vehicle onto the footpath and seeing where the edge of the narrow roads were. This persisted in trucks till 20's and some times later, but cars were driven on the right side of the road. The Romans on the other hand drove on the left and so this was why Britian drove on the left it was made law in 1700's in the UK. Ain't the internet grand anyone can be an instant expert.

    Yeah you are both quite right, one must know ones limitations and stay within their own lane so to speak. It won't be long and I'll be in a nursing home being spoon fed my daily porridge and dreaming about what might have been had I been brave enough to step outside my own little box.

    Every day when I wake up I reach up in the darkness with my eyes shut and if I cannot feel anything that resembles a wooden lid I know it will be a good day. No lid today.

    Our obviously listening google lady, laments loudly that it can't connect with the internet, now if we could directly connect calls from Nicole from the NBN they could chat and report on each other a dozen times a day.

    Now that is a nice car, but the price and logistics seems out of the question... but if anyone can duplicate those lines 59Floride probably could!

    I have no doubt he could but at what cost? Not just $ but in time. He isn't retired just yet. Perhaps when G retires it could be a project to keep in mind for the future. Although he says his next major project on retirement will be a house. Love to have a drive of a Nerva Sport though. Build a Nerva first G then build the house, otherwise I'll be too old to drive it, if not aready dead.

    We had a V16 Cadillac at the Celebration of the Motor Car last Sunday. That's 2 Nervas. There was a Buick too. One Nerva...

    Using the Nerva as a unit, 2 4CVs = 1 Nerva. There's an idea.... Renault made a little V8 out of two Ventoux engines.

    All this talk about Cadillacs, Nervas and 4Cvs is making me exhausted, I think I'll just finish the projects that I've already got and leave it at that for a while.

    The Vivasport looks very much like the 1936 Chevrolet Sloper my father owned.

    Bit strange, only trois-chevaux. I'd have expected more. If you find one with four, I'll send it to our Editors.

    It's an unusual and pleasant rear-quarter styling, isn't it. Two fuel tanks is no surprise given a large-ish engine.

    Thanks for posting.

    A few of Renault's 1930s cars had that American look. Conservative gentleman. The 4CV is a miniature late-1930s Chev or Ford in some respects, as is the Peugeot 203 too, but they lifted their game after that and became more original.

    I'll forgive two horses being twins.... Very funny. Duly sent to the editor, whose decision is final of course.

    Just like my 4CV... Mine are fully engineered and therefore much stronger than the car itself. The Vivasport would presumably have something strong to fix them to I suppose.
    Well spotted!

    Hello,
    At the Renault factory, the wheel moved from right to left with the 1933 model year
