    When I posted it it was at 12K and I thought that was high. I checked it an hour later and it was at 20K. Just don't see it.

    Same here Bill. This car is being discussed on the R5 forum. 8221 vin has the aluminum roof which is nice, and why probably it bent easier with the heat.

    Wow such a shame. The engine bay looks a lot like my '85 MR2 after the fire. $20K would soon about $100K with a proper restoration unless the "patina" was left untouched.

    "renault 5 maxi turbo and tour de corse junkies"..Its on Facebook. Tons of knowledge and help from around the world for our cars. The Yahoo one is also good but not as much action.

    So guy gets paid by his insurance, then buy's back the car from them. Trying to hit a grand slam I guess. That is a good one.

    Sorry Tutt, what is a vin decoder? Let me know and I can ask.


    Just googled it, Not sure on our cars that they do . But they pretty much know everything about the cars.

    New axle seals
    New Master
    New Clutch Slave
    New Brake pads and rotors
    All fluid flush
    New larger capacity radiator
    New Euro Headlights
    New Bilstein coil overs (true coil overs)
    New shift linkage cable attachment(replaces the one that is prone to breaking)
    New Cap and rotor
    Adjusted lifters to spec, they where way too tight before


    Ill probably need to source tires soon....forgot how much fun it is to drive this car

    just got it from getting the paint corrected. As im driving back to my warehouse/office a lady flags me down to ask me if this was a brand new car they were selling here in the US. Informed her that it was in fact 30 years old and she was in shock!

    She looks sweet! And in good company. The reactions I get rolling down Rodeo drive is pretty impressive . From kids knowing the R5 from playing it on their PS4 or the 80's generation growing up wanting one. Here is one of my friend and I with his white one.
