I'd also owned a Renault Dauphine in the past. I assume WE are the only two on this forum to make that claim :))
This is my third Mazda. (1st 323 ---1.5Ltr, 2nd Astina ---1.8Ltr these model names may not mean much to you). My Cx-3 is 2Ltr and proving the most economical petrol (gas) wise.

Pea-Green Dauphine ... early 60s, served me well my senior year of college ... dependable, good mileage, certainly more refined than the ubiquitous Beetles.

How did you like yours?

Sky blue Dauphine ... 1960 model, 3-speed manual, synchromesh, floor-mounted shifter. I bought it in 63 and had it till 67. Served me well if for no other reason I (how do you put it) cut my teeth with it. I came to grips with TDC (top dead centre), timing, points gap etc. That has served me well in all the years since. YES! I liked it very much.
