World Travels in Renault 4 CV

“My favorite is the ‘Renault 4 CV’.’ My parents bought a secondhand model with their savings in 1960 – our first car – unfortunately, they didn’t have enough money to pay an insurance policy and the car remained unused for some months… my sister and I spent hours in it, playing imaginery drivers & travellers !

the 4 CV was the first popular post-war car – very tiny but we loved it. When we left for holidays, it was crammed full – a funny and exciting expedition.
