I have got the impression through the years that the R 16 had very good sales in UK. Didn't it ?

Haven't got figures but it was fairly popular - UK liked the hatchback idea and Simca 1100 also sold well. And if the French had not shown the way, BMC would never have been inspired to design the Maxi.

THe last time I saw one was about 2000/01 when I visited my friend's scrapyard. I saw it go into the crusher.

Rust loved them.

Several years ago I saw a mid-70s Renault wagon in a department store parking lot in a suburb of Detroit. They were NEVER popular in the US when new.Thats the only one Ive ever seen.We had the 12, 17/Gordini,and r5/Lecar in the 70s, and the Fuego and 18 in the 80s.All are pretty much extinct. We also had the Alliance, Encore and Medallion but most people consider those more AMC than Renault.Renault has a bad reputation here for low quality and poor reliability.Even today they will have a hard time selling their cars.

Last month, at my vactions in Canada, I've seen not any French car. Neverwhere, not even in rotten condition behind some hoarder's houses. Oh, yes, one single 2 CV was the exception, obviously owned by an enthusiast. That was all.

The Cars in Canada all rusted away, and French cars typically were disposed of pretty quickly.No one bothered to restore them or fix them up.Im surprised you saw a 2cv.The US is more populated and has more cars and French cars have mostly all disappeared here.
