A bit of French history

Post by PeteMac » Sun Oct 14, 2018 7:44 pm

My Ti didn’t come with much in the way of history, but some came to light recently, by way of the following service slips, found down the recess below the heater motor.

Seems the car was in Champagnole in eastern France, at least between 1994 and 1996. The documents also confirm that the odometer had, by that time, already broken. It still read 60000 when I got the car.

Probably a long shot, but if anyone knows anything of the car’s history, I’d love to hear it.

I live a few miles from Champagnole, but never saw the car. Come to think of it, we only moved here in 1998.
