The car on the right.
It reminds me of a Renault 18, or am I needing glasses?

Depends on the year. When they stopped the sedan around 1983/1984 the wagon was just called "Sportwagon" instead of "18i Wagon".

Wow, totally forgot about those being imported to the US. They came here about the same time as the Fuego coupe. Nice find indeed.

Yeah, that's right, I don't remember if it was an 18 Sportwagon or just Sportwagon however.
My neighbor replaced it's Renault 12 with a metallic blue 18 sedan, I was a kid then but I remember there were many things wrong with his car when it was just a few years old (the speedo didn't work, he relied on the tach to approximate his speed and the reading light above the passenger side door didn't work either as I tried the switch!). He got rid of it over 20 years ago and I don't recall seeing another one since. The Sportwagons were more common but I haven't seen one lately.

I remember that my neighbor's Renault 18 sedan had (3) wheelcovers like these:

Were they available in Europe?

I do not remember having seen these wheels here.
About the Sportwagon name, when they stopped the sedan they also dropped the "18i" name actually.

They were hubcaps, i remember that there was one missing on the passenger side when he got rid of the car.
