French Fried Cheeseburger: 1984 Renault Alliance

If you ask an automotive lovin’ kid today what he/she thinks about the Renault Alliance, they’ll probably tell you that Carlos Ghosn was framed, but Nissan should run as far away from the French automaker as possible..but if you ask an old seasoned car guy, he/she will regale you with stories of Franco-Merican build quality, MotorTrend’s 1983 Car of the Year Award, and arriving at their final destination on foot. Or perhaps I’m being a bit hard on the little Kenosha, Wisconsin assembled french fry, maybe you could be that guy at the next Friday night car show.  Find this 1984 Renault Alliance offered for $1100 in Milford, CT via hemmings.  Tip from BP.
