This 1:43 Solido Renault 4cv came from Jobjoris, because of course it did. Fun fact, I have now typed his name enough times in my phone that when I spell it wrong, my phone corrects it the right way.

I know very little about the 4CV, but at a glance I’d say the French crossed American sedans of the 40's with a VW Beetle, and out came the 4CV. The model is quite nice, and I absolutely love this shade green.

No opening parts on this one, but on small models I actually prefer crisp lines to opening parts.

I decided to take some pictures of it with a 1:43 Franklin Mint Lincoln Continental, which I featured long ago, because... well, because I thought it would be funny. I couldn’t get over how tiny this car is, so why not compare it to a car that is basically peak land-barge?
