The bad, the good,
and some would say ugly
I'm looking on the best French vehicle sale site, Leboncoin, for another Renault Master van. I got to looking at Integrales, there are several Deltas on there,
and I'll share two with you...
The first is a vision of sadness, someone's pride and joy has hit something, hard.
This is a very upsetting to see, and I hope the driver wasn't too badly hurt,
The light structure of our little cars can be observed here.
There are no engine shots, but there could be a bit worth saving, I have
run the ad through Google translate, and it's shown to the right.

There is a shocking contrast between the beautiful blue
French sky, and the tragic loss of a well loved car.
I know it happens to cars all the time, all over the world,
but to see one of our family suffering such
a trauma is very sad.
The next Delta on Leboncoin is a happier prospect,
and quite a bargain...see below.
Our 2nd Delta is a very nice looking red 8 valve, it looks clean and well cared for.
It's for sale at MAGA Automobiles in Toulon, nothing to do with Trump I hope.
The Delta is on sale at 17900 euros, this equals £15950.00, which these days is quite a bargain.
The description is another Google translation.
Toulon is a lovely city right on the French south coast, there are fantastic Napoleonic sea defences,
Toulon was the French naval headquarters. We were down there once in our 16v.

The hunt for a good Renault Master is difficult, French van owners don't like answering emails, and I can only communicate by email and Google translate.
In the past I've gone to see the van, but I can't now with Covid restrictions. We've just left the EU, which has rubbed our neighbour's backs up the wrong way, and I'll have to hire a Shiply operator to bring the van back to UK.
Looking at Leboncoin and seeing the exotic French bargains makes up for it though!
Take care and keep safe.
The good, the bad and the ugly. Don't you just love 'em!
