Default Renault 5 GT Turbo

Don't see many of these about, spotted yesterday in Ilfracombe.

I was a passenger in one once, scared the hell out of me, felt so unstable at speed!

I considered this as my "first new car" when I qualified as an accountant (as reward for all those crazy exams... ).

In the end I went for a Fiat Uno, principally because (a) it handled better and (b) was likely to be more reliable.

In hindsight, definitely the right decision on both counts - several of my peers bought R5s in various variants including this one, and they were always breaking down - pity really, 'cos they looked cool.

I'd rather have had a 205 GTi tho'...

I was a mk2 Golf GTI man myself. I had 2, the latter one having the lovely big bumpers. Both 8v though not the faster 16v. Great days.

I had a VR6 Corrado after that.... wish I still had it.
