    Well. It's been a very, very, very, very long time since I had something French in my life.
    After scouring ebay for quite some time and being put off by intergalactic mileages and just stupid prices for piles of potential shite, I have done the entirely AS thing and bought one of these:
    Yes, a white 1996 Renner Espace Mk2.
    It has low 80K on the clock, a few foibles such as a temperamental passenger window, a heater control that only likes to be on '4', a back box that needs top have its clamp loosened and the back box twisting slightly to be better aligned, a couple of very small holes in the front part of the exhaust, an oil leak from somewhere higher up on the engine and a knackered clutch.
    The car will be taken to the Enfield Mr Clutch in 2 weeks time to be sorted, the clutch is on order as we speak. 
    The Big Frenchie will have its rear seats removed, the carpet cleaned/replaced if really shite. The rear windows will be heavily tinted, LED lighting fitted in the back, reversing sensors fitted, the car will be serviced and fitted with new hoses, temp sensor and thermostat to reduce longer distance travelling stresses. Might also replace the shocks fore and aft.
    DAB radio fitted, a 12v fridge obtained and perhaps a split charging system too. Anyone willing/able to do that for me as electrical stuff that isn't fitted to a small Triumph gives me the heebies. 
    It'll be a weekend/week escape vehicle, plus it is also pretty practical as well.
    It will need a good clean also.
