Why a Renault Alliance or Encore?

I have owned several AMC Renaults over the past 25 yrs.  I got interested in them when i worked for an auto dealership that sold the AMC/Jeep/Renaults, they where new to the market, and no one wanted to work on these foreign cars, so being the new kid, they gave them to me to work on. Whenever one was deemed too expensive to repair, i would make an offer to buy, then repair it and resell it. In the end, i kept 4 convertibles thinking someday i would fix them up. The 2 i have for restoration are the ones i drove when Brenda and i first met, i eventually fixed up the red one for her, and my black one broke the timing belt and got parked for later repair.  That is my story, i would like to hear how and why so many of you overseas have chosen to import and fix up this little known car from Kenosha. So if you don't mind sharing your stories, i would like to hear them!

Re: Why a Renault Alliance or Encore?

The first time I saw an Alliance is when I was a young teenager, I saw a gold one in A-Team episode, I was very surprise to see this car in US !

Later in 1985, in a French automotive newspaper, I was shocked eek eek eek when I discover the american R9 convertible ! in Europe, we don’t have this model.

Francois, is that a mid 60's Firebird you have there? I would like to see your progress with that project. You appear to have many nice toys to play with w

Re: Why a Renault Alliance or Encore?

François, That looks like an AMC Eagle, the first 4 wheel drive compact wagon over here. Are there many of them over there? Many people really loved them, they would go through any terrain, and where very reliable!

Now for the rest of you, i would really like to hear more stories about how and why you each have an Alliance or Encore.  big_smile
