Usually I am not a Transportation guy but I have been enjoying the shortlisted competition entries on Designboom for the “Renault 4 Ever” competition. Especially since my parents used to have one for over 20 years when I was a kid. Many memories in that car and tears when it was crushed in fron of our eyes at the junkyard.

It is funny though how many sort of look like Marc Newson did them.
I haven’t had time to go through them in depth yet, but I’ve also been looking forward to the results of this. One of m desiners and I were trying to far an entry ready, but we got slammed with work and it never moved beyond a couple of sketches.
My best friend in high school had a Renault Dauphine (Princess). He was a year older than me so I rode shotgun for the better part of a year until I got my license.
More than a little underpowered, especially when you consider that this was the late sixties when GTOs, Camaros, Mustangs, and Chargers were what most guys were driving. Still it was a great little car.
Rally wasn’t cool then… or it might have been cooler.
