I got hold of Terry townsend's email number via this forum and send him 6 emails and still need an answer from him regarding the Mpiti Renault. My questions to him was:

Introduced myself.

Is the car still alive and can i have some pix of it??

If not can i pay him a visit and discuss the car and take some pix??[got his adress]

Can he send me more history on the car and is it possible that he know my car and can comment on it???

And all i got from the man was.......no i cannot help. Not in that words but he never answered a decent question.

I interviewed a lot of classic car owners in my lifespan and never, but never came unto anybody that hold back information or show a fling of rudeness. Everybody is always very co operative and helpfull.

Am i doing something wrong???? Always experienced the Rear engined Renault gang as the most helpfull in the RSA. I have never bought or sold a Renault part to anybody. If i need it i got it for a song and if anybody else want something i have i give it to him. All i need from this man is info 8O 8O :roll: :oops: :oops:
