I am working on getting my R16 in shape for daily use. I have never seen one on the road in this country (USA) in the last 20 years that I have stored the car in our garage (against my wife's
wishes). I am told that President De Gaulle of France had a disagreement with the USA when the car was being sold. He pulled all Renault Dealers out of the USA abruptly and that is why none of
these cars were sold at that time. Something happened because you can't even find one in the salvage yards.
