This R16 from -73 did its last journey on summerday in August 1985.
As many others the rear suspension had collapsed due to corrosion and Olivier thought it could be fun to try some AutoCross with it...
On his fathers first R16, bought new in 1966, the rear suspension had also collapsed, but Olivier was able to brace it using some pieces which he riveted in place.
As the day went on the poor old R16 looked worse and worse...
until finally the left front suspension gave up.
