VIVE LA DIFFÉRENCE!

Practical Classics (UK) - - YOUR SHOUT -

I swore I’d never be one of those ‘I think you’ll find’ read­ers, but I couldn’t help my­self. In Novem­ber’s Mem­ory Lane what you claimed was an egg-yolk Re­nault 15 was in fact an R17. Dare I say the Gor­dini model be­cause of its vinyl roof?

My first car was a 1973 Re­nault 15TL. I re­painted it white and got a vinyl roof fit­ted. It was a bril­liant car, but one day the electrics gave up the ghost and set fire to the ig­ni­tion sys­tem’s in­su­la­tion.

I al­ways longed for a Re­nault 17, the TS ver­sion with a vinyl fold­back sun­roof. War­ren Knight, via email

R17: it’s what War­ren wants.
