Default I just had someone ask me for touch-up paint for a Renault

I work in the parts department for a Mazda/Subaru dealership, and I just had some old guy who could barely speak English ask me for touch-up paint for a Renault.

I didn't even bother. I sent him to Advance.

He's either a diplomat who has imported a car (if he's speaking French) or he's looking for paint for his Le Car in which case you should send him to Lowe's and tell him to look for the can labelled "KRYLON"

Since Subarus and Renaults are both Australian cars, maybe he thought you might carry it.

Ettore Bugatti was Italian and when Bugatti was founded Alsace, where it is located, was part of Germany. France annexed it after WWI.
