Big news from The Holy See. Pope Francis has accepted a 1984 Renault R4 with over 190,000 on the odometer from a priest who admires the Infallible Dude and his, apparently genuine, pledge of poverty. Renault introduced the R4 to compete with the Citroën 2CV (deux chevaux ) in 1961 and built 8 million of them over the course of the next 30+ years. They were never officially imported into the US but Germans loved both the R4 and the 2CV and celebrated them in this very sanctified video clip.
