I play a little game in which I stand far enough away that I can't read any badges and try to guess the manufacturer. This car almost had me... until I spotted the three-lug wheels. Renault! Turns out this is a Renault 16, a car I've never seen on an American street in all my years on this earth. Check out that somewhat space-inefficent front-wheel-drive setup! I can only imagine the just-won-the-lottery sensation an American Renault 16 owner would feel upon stumbling across this once-in-a-lifetime jackpot. Jump like his heart to see the rest of the photos.
