My '83 110 - plus other Baltimore pics...

Just for a change - it's a thread with pics - or rather links to them...


LR pics:

http://www.davecoxon.co.uk/Baltimore/DC_110_1.JPG (as found at the docks)
http://www.davecoxon.co.uk/Baltimore/DC_110_2.JPG (me having sat in a '83 for all of 2 minutes)
http://www.davecoxon.co.uk/Baltimore/DC_110_3.JPG (home at last)
http://www.davecoxon.co.uk/Baltimore/DC_110_4.JPG (probably first polish in 10, maybe 15 years)
http://www.davecoxon.co.uk/Baltimore/DC_110_5.JPG (nice healthy TDi from a friends defender)


Austin Mini Pics (not sure if any of you guys like minis, but whatever)!

http://www.davecoxon.co.uk/Baltimore/dock_minis_7.JPG
http://www.davecoxon.co.uk/Baltimore/dock_minis_8.JPG


And if any of you guys want to admit that you'd spend $2000+ importing this 1983 Renault, then you need your bumps feeling... I can only think someone wanted to be so 'individual' that they decided they'd be the owner of the ONLY Renault 9 in the USA?

It's pretty cool that the LR got 'spotted' twice - by Neil at the docks, and by Charles out on the road...

Yeah Neil and I checked your truck out @ the docks while we were being jerked around by the shipping line for three hours. Looks like you got a good one. There was also a white 300tdi/r380/lhd/with a/c truck there. Not much chance it was an 83 ....imported by a dealership in PA.
The mini's have been there since January when I brought my truck in. I think they must be customs siezures.

Didn't they just sell that here as the Renault alliance? The real mess in that pic is the caddy convertible sitting on 24's or whatever that is

Truck looks good though. Congrats.

Truck is good for 25 years old. Chassis is very solid, panels are mostly straight, interior is mostly clean - only real attention area that is 'getting into' is the LH footwell, which needs cutting out and replacing. The drivers side one is like new strangely enough.

Oh, front shocks (or rather the bushes) are totally shot - can lift the axle 1/2" with a prybar before it touches the shocks. The previous owner put the two replacements he didn't find time to replace in the rear jack bin, so that and a new steerign damper (i always replace these no matter what) and I'll be good to take for a test-drive on the open road!

Congrats. It's good to see another brown bomber through the gate.

That slammed caddy is pimp, though. And yes, the minis were there when we picked mine up. Is the blue abortion of a 110 still sitting at the shed?

It is a mess, but not beyond recovery for the right person.

It's either a '69 or a '70, (the only difference is the front grille which we can't see.)

Supposedly, with its 375 HP 472 cu in V8, a Coupe DeVille could go from 0 to 100 in under 30 seconds. Not too shabby for a 4,600 lb land yacht.

In high school, I drove a 72 Coupe DeVille. Olive cream with a green vinyl top and a green brocaid broadcloth interior. The 472 did actually move those tailfins with surprising rapidity, but it was the 6-8 mpg that ended our relationship eventually. Thank got it ran on regular and gas was 89 cents a gallon. It still cost me 30 bucks a week to fill the tank.
