RealRides of WNY (CNY edition) - 1971 Renault 16

(Today’s RealRide of WNY comes the long way around via Central New York)

Yesterday we showed you what was considered American luxury from the 1950s in the ’59 Buick Electra. The French have always had a different outlook when it comes to their cars. This 1971 Renault 16, though something far from what most American car buyers would consider luxurious, had a pair of front seats which I might argue were more comfortable than anything that came out of post-war Detroit. Many French family cars had seating at least as comfortable as whatever you may have had in your living room. But of course, the exteriors were something else; even most non-car buffs could probably pick a French car out of a mall parking lot-full of automobiles. And the Renault 16 was no exception. Saw this one a few years back at the annual Citroën Rendezvous in Ballston Lake.
