all the cars were crap in that era.....the renault 4, the renault dauphine, the fiat 5, the skoda estelle, the beetle, the citroen dayane (The RAC man next door told me - please don't call me if you buy that shit.)
Still if you want to talk down British industry that sort of fits in with the Remainer philosophy.
The Aveling Barford Dumper truck division I worked for had a waiting list of seven years. The Charnos and Aristoc tights factory had full order books and order books stretching forward for four years.. French people used to come to the midlands to patronise the factory shops of viyella and celestion wood.
All gone. The result serious social problems. Homelessness, broken communities, hard drugs. I can't convince you - but that's what motivates the people you are calling brexshitters and little Englanders.
