This one annoys me. My brain tells me I know it, but I can't remember from where. I can recognize the models of several cars up the back row though!

I know this one, since the father of a friend of mine from my school days was the local dealer for this brand of car. Kinda cute, kinda sporty lookin' little roadster, isn't it? Never saw too many of them, though...

Oooohhhh! No! I forgot I needed to know the year. Don't know why but what it is popped right into my mind. Was thrilled when I double checked to find I was right. Maybe Harry can give an Atta Boy! for getting 2 out 3 right. :lol:

The car in the picture is a 1968 Renault Caravelle. At least the photo lists it as a '68.  :D

This was a very rare model kit made by Record. This one sold for 38 GBP on eBay UK earlier this year.

I've got a resin repop of that car. Not real crazy about it as the quality is a bit dubious. May get rid of it on eBay.

Argh! I was one click away from actually finding it - literally! Was searching French Convertible's yesterday, and it was one page lower than I looked.

 

Add to that, on Wednesday, their latest convertible was traveling alongside me.

Whelp I knew it was a Renault Caravelle. I just didn't get the 68. To make matters worse because I was thinking yesterday was Friday so I didn't think there was time to find out what year it was. Sheesh! :rolleyes:
