Lord K's Garage #160: Renault, 1930s

Between the two World Wars, Renault (responsible for the first mass-produced light tank) remained an important car & truck manufacturer.

Renault Primaquatre RDS Sport 1939

Their designs weren't revolutionary but I can't call them "ultra-conservative. " Some luxury models boasted  eye-striking bodywork, like the one we see below, the engines were constantly improved, and extensive use of aluminium in the upper-class segment is noteworthy. Let's take a look.

I can hear Charles Trenet singing BOUM BOUM! Or the sounds of the Marseille coming out the doors of Rick's Cafe in French Algeria. I like most of these designs and those I do not like are very interesting.
