At 0:39 there is a Renault Fuego Turbo that looks exactly like the car my parents used to have, same color and everything.  That was in the mid 80's, I was a little tike and remember it mainly because I liked watching the turbo gauge move as my mom ripped around in it.

At 130 on the timer there is a badge on a vehicle that reads "Turbo Diesel".  I wonder what vehicle that was on?  Those things seem to catch my eye.

The Turbo Diesel was an optional engine in the XJ.  A 2.1L Renault available from 85 until early 87....... I think

I'd be excited too if I had all those Eagles and Jeeps in brand new condition!

Ya know, that little Renault didn't do half bad off road either...Its funny how the more I watch that video the more I want to go out and buy another AMC....or even a Renault for that matter....that's a very persuasive commercial indeed!

That was a long commercial! How many Renaults were made? You don't see any of those vehicles around anymore. Seem like they are even rarer than the Eagle.
