People think Cinco de Mayo is Mexican Independence Day—it's not, that's in September—but it's actually the celebration of a great victory over the French. Blame Napoleon III, war-mongering nephew of his diminutive and equally warlike namesake. But the two countries made up a century later, because this Dinalpin A110 is hecho en Mexico. The power of commerce (and rear-mounted Renault engines) triumphs over all.
