    Renault CUV based on Juke underpinnings.

    My information is that the new Renault Captur CUV is based in the Clio. Undoubtedly there's some Nissan in it as well.

    There's lots of pressure on Renault to build Nissans in France. Reports are a bit conflicting as to whether it'll happen. (Reuters).

    I remember a quote from the late 1980s from the CEO of Renault at that time:

    "Zee Japanese? Zay have nothing to teach us..."

    To be fair, Renault saved Nissan.

    Now it'll be the other way around.

    G'day

    A second generation (but Mark I) Ford Transit from about 1965-78. This one is a long wheelbase van with twin rear wheels. The stubby nose housed a V4 engine which was seriously underpowered.

    This one appears to be LHD suggesting it was made in Europe, rather than England

    An awful, awful vehicle. Its great claim to fame was that it was the vehicle of choice for UK thieves for a long time - totally unmemorable and most seemed to be in the awful red colour above. Every gypsy encampment seemed to have several.

    Cheers

    seems pretty close.

    according to the seller, it is a "1967 magirus firetruck german made in turky by ford"

    Quite the lineage!

    looks like a Chrysler 200 rebadged as a Lancia?

    G'day

    Theoretically a Lancia Thema, but looks to be 100% Chrysler.

    The original Thema was an interesting car, built on a common platform with Alfa 164, Fiat Croma and Saab 9000.

    I know nothing of this latest version, although Lancia are badgins Chryslers as Thema and Voyager. Debasement of a once great name

    Would have been an awfully slow fire engine!

    Nope, the current Thema is a re-badged Chrysler 300. The re-badged 200 is sold as the Lancia Flavia>

    That's my sister in law's name so she wants one!

    My dad has a 200c so she may get to ride in it when she visits.

    "(Ana) Flavia"

    That's a relief, I though it was "200"... :P
  • Mr_ShiftrightMr_Shiftright CaliforniaPosts: 44,403
    Marketing that car as a Lancia Flavia is like driving a stake through my heart :cry: --well, Fiat treated the Lancia name no better in the 1980s.

    Everyone should have the pleasure of driving a 50s Lancia sedan or 70s Lancia Stratos rally car just to know how advanced, capable and thrilling these cars used to be.

    Speaking of rare Lancias:

    That Lancia woodie must be a derivation of the Aurelia. Me want!

    Yep, an Aurelia woody. Very rare indeed. I have personally never seen one, and I've seen some weird stuff.
