Five icons for under 5000 euros

...So the March issue of 'Gazoline' informs us! The Mini starts at 4500, Fiat 500 at 5000, Beetle at 3800, Renault 4 at 2400 & a 2CV at 4000 euros.

Values are rising for the Mini at a rate of 7% per annum, the Beetle is holding its own, the little Fiat up just 2% per year, the 2CV up 10% but the lowly Renault 4 is increasing by a whopping 16%.

These prices are for decent useable examples rather than restoration projects or concours ones.

As it happens I am advertising a Renault 4 in the classifieds...
