    This image is from the 1966 Fiat 124. Number 15 is the brake compensator / load-height brake proportioning valve.

    Fiat used this system on their cars starting in at least from 1966 on the 124 series. The low priced 127, 128, Strada (even Yugo, plus the130 and Dino) also used this system. That was some of the advanced engineering that separated Fiat from the competition. It also blew the mind on many American mechanics who weren't used to such sophistication back then. These cars were filled with features like this and many mechanics in that era were lost on the technology. For example, when you bled the brakes the rear wheels need to be at normal ride height and not "hanging" like when on a lift.

    Renault 5

    I've always liked the Renault 5. Like most French cars. it is a really interesting car. It is technically a mid-engine front wheel drive car with the transmission taking the drive off the "front" of the longitudinally installed engine. Great packaging and loads of room, plus a good ride. The wheel base differs in length from the drivers and passenger side. It was one of the reasons I became a small car enthusiast.

    Below is from one of my brochures I had on the car:

    My good friends, first automotive corporate job, was with AMC. American motors had a partnership with Renault. They imported the Renault 5 here/ Le car here. He bought one of the corporate ones to the house. Gave a test drive. It was quite a funky little car. Fun to drive.

    The only car, I could compare it to, was my wife to be. Honda Civic. A fun car to drive too. We have always had a Honda, in our stable ever since.

    It was an interesting layout to be sure. I was actually more interested in the Alliance/Encore. I especially liked the GTA. I drove a couple of Alliances and they were pretty nice.

    Actually I always wanted a Renault Fuego too.
