That R18 is gorgeous! Not seen a good R18 in a long while, not to mention one as nice as that!
fellow renault fans may be upset as also crushed complete were Renault7 and USA spec MK1 5 air con and silly bumpers

Who fancies an old Renault - or two?

Absolutely. Anything with a TL is going to be worth a gawp.Just thinking about the last genuine chrome bumpered motor in the UK - chrome has made some sort of comeback albeit in plastic form - I'd imagine it would be something like a mid eighties Toyota Crown or something. The last metal bumpered car might be easier to discover - off the top of my head I'd say a pov spec Maestro or Maestro van.
Like a 78 R14 TL in grey?

(Rover) Mini I would have thought?
That's got me thinking actually. I wonder what the last car sold in the UK with chrome bumpers was?? I reckon the Chevette maybe, not counting things like Rollers and the like.

No such worries in my povo machine, it's immaculate orangey/tan vinyl!!Don't seem to be able to upload the photo at the mo', but look closely at these photos and you just about get the idea. This car is exactly the same as my Dad's first 18 DDB 395T, even down to the orange vinyl seats, although that was a TS. It was a really early (Feb '79) TS and also had no rubber trims. The TS didn't get the rubber bumper and side trim until a few months into '79 - Renault couldn't make their mind up as to how miserable they could be, although it always had the better velour seats - provided the optional (AT COST vinyl wasn't ordered)
how is the interior as most TL seats fell apart but TS/GTS much better

And apparently with the exception of me, too.
I already have three old Renaults and I think that's more than enough for any one man (with the exception of your good self and Mr Bickle, obviously).
I was the only bidder - does everyone else know something I don't...?
