    Default 1978 R14 TL die-cast

    Unfortunately no longer running or in posession of roof racks and racing bikes. Historic vehicle - team car in Tour D'Italia 1978. Imported from UK in fit of nostalgia, 1999.

    So that would put the total number of 14's in the country to .. 3? Two models, one large one. I think there are pic's of the big one at RCCV Renault roundup.
    Those people that say I know - generally don't.

    Mine used to look like that, but I didn't like the green.
    I should have filled in the holes in the roof too, because when I went to sell it, I had offers for the roof rack and bikes, but no-one was interested in the R14.



    Cheers Renomad

    I guess it's understandable the 14 and 18 weren't much loved - they were pretty bland after the 16 and 12. All our family cars were Renaults until the 18 sort of ended the love affair for dad - it was Vauxhalls for him thereafter unfortunately...
