    I'm sure you will recognize her face.

    When I was chasing a steering wheel for Caravelle Tim Renkens from Old Timers had just sold a batch to someone who was renovating/building boats, so it is quite good to see one fitted to one a good number of years ago and it’s not just a new “fad" consuming “our” parts. Yes Charlotte was quite pleasant visually as no doubt the boat was.

    Was it the Night Porter movie of 1974 or the recent mini series the Night Porter which I did see? However I prefer Bridgitte B on/in a Floride.

    Default New Owner

    I've just become the proud owner of a 1965 Caravelle R1133 and thought I'd say hello.

    The old lass had been off the road since 1988 living in a heated garage but is now just about renovated and ready to roll again after a strip down and respray.


    Considering the length of time she'd been off the road surprisingly little tin worm either.


    Oh by the way I'm a Pom hope it doesn't count against me, someone has to live here

    Welcome, always like to find another Flocar owner even a Pommie. The car looks very nice. Is that an original colour? Is it an original 4 seater and kept as such? I love these cars and have several. Currently slowly respraying my Floride S. We have been to two rallys in France with the Floride Caravelle Club of France. They were great. We are due to go again in 2018. 32 Australians went to the last big event in 2012. The French found 16 cars for us to drive. A remarkable effort. The largest number of these cars I have seen in one place was 103 ( from memrory ) in France in 2009. There was only one car from the UK. Do you find many at events in UK? Cheers and welcome. Rob

    Welcome our pommie mate.
    I didn't think there was any poms left there, and it depends on which football team you follow.
    Is the photo before or after your restoration?
    Lets hope you get a summer next year and you can unbolt that hardtop, take it for a spin and enjoy.

    Yes, and a big welcome from me too. They are nice cars, to say the least.

    Do you belong to the Renault Classic club in England? I've contact details if you need them - nice bunch.

    Nice looking car, especially if that is paint over metal not paint over bog! You can't look too closely.

    Cheers
