Az, that's last minute christmas shopping...

I can guarantee, if you go to a ski resort you would think every 2nd or 3rd car was a full-size 4x4 - go to Monaco, and play spot the convertible...

Fact is, Renault has too many models and too much overlap - check this link; and you'll see what I mean.

It was common knowledge that someone high-up in Ford asked a new start - "what does Ford make?", the respondent replied, "Cars.", to which the person asking the question replied, "no, money."

If they were selling all they could produce at a price which makes a profit - they wouldn't be making the cuts.


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
