    Have you checked the going rate for kidneys on eBay?

    If that's your childhood dream car, I think you owe it to yourself to do EVERYTHING in your power to get hold of it.
    It's not a question of whether you can afford it, or can justify it...
    It's more a case of if you can afford to live the rest of your life knowing it was there, and you never went for it.

    That way you'll look back with fondness when you are old and wrinkly, sitting in your favourate arm chair stinking off pi*s and germolene, and say to yourself 'at least I had one of those'...rather than spending every day from now to then thinking about 'what if...?'

    Go on...you know it makes sense... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/devil.gif[/img]

    BTW, it's a great choice...properly individual. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif[/img]

    Your soo right though, its not what it goes like etc, there's just something about them i have always loved and they are very, very rare.

    What's it likely to do to my kidneys? or have i missed something?

    Go to it man...stop wasting time...life is too short to live the rest of it regretting a decision like this!
    It's not even bank busting money...beg, borrow, steal or sell your kindey on eBay [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] but go and get it.

    If your missus loves you...she'll understand. Maybe not yet for a while...but she'll understand. Eventually. She may never accept or approve...but one day, she'll see what it means to you.

    Just ask her if she would rather have you miserable, in a state of morbid contemplation at the mistake you made...or have you happy as a cainine with two appendages for the next few years.

    Go on...

    This isn't looking good, i mailed the wench over 2hrs ago for erm..........permission, and no reply! It'll be her conservatory money [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] no contest, you can have a conservatory when we sell it!

    i mean, where's the builders number?

    Khufu
    Is your friends a "Turbo", Turbo (aka turbo 1), esentially the same as turbo 2 (mid engine) or a the front engined rubish? If it is a Turbo 1 they are worth 12 - 15k

    I doesn't really matter about the brakes TBH, its not to be driven, just hugged and squeezed, who needs an women anyway?

    Re: Childhood dream car up for sale!

    Ok fair enough it is a classic and its very rare, but come on.......its a renault!!! You cant justify selling your Audi S3 to buy it. Also think about the reliability, 2 brothers i know love their renault 5's but every week or so they break down, and you have to spend serious money on it just to get the buggers running again. Its a nice idea but i dont think its worth it. Plus you know it has been thrashed! Just hope your joking man!

    Re: Childhood dream car up for sale!

    What a pathetic reply, I feel.

    This car is the man's dream...who cares what badge it's wearing. I'm not a badge snob...that car is an icon...and childhood dreams are worth more than buying the right modern car to impress the chaps down the local wine bar...it's about emotion..a comodity that cannot be bought, at any price.

    If I find myself in the position to buy the car I have had on my walls since being a small boy (and still have on my walls today) the practicality of the decision don't come into it.

    Emotion is a purely selfish thing - no one but you understand completely - it's just sometimes, you have to do, what you have to do.

    Live on the edge...buy it.

    Even if you sell it a month later after hugging it to death...
    You can buy a convervatory any time...

    It's better to have lived and loved, than never to have lived at all...isn't that what they say?


    The fact that you are even considering it places you right up there in 'true enthusiast' catagory in my book. So what if it's old....and a Renault...and likely to break...and not as fast / flash as your S3. That car has soul...more soul in it's wheels than audi imparted unto the S3/TT.

    This could be the point at which you become a role model...
    Go on...you know it makes sense!
    Is your pulse racing?
    Is your heart pounding?
    Are you remembering all those pictures you had of it as a small boy?

    Do it! Do it! Do it! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/devil.gif[/img]

    Well you may feel its pathetic; however all I was doing was playing devil's advocate. Dreams are all well and good, but I wouldnt see the sense in buying this (in my opinion) wreck! Just look at it, its hideous! But anyway thats just my opinion and everyone is entitled to sharing theres (this is a forum).

    Audi Quattro..................Now your talking!!!

    Aye Nervus, it was just the toy version she had. IIRC it had 13" wheels and it had tiny discs! I must admit though, I'm with Yogi and Dubber Dan. One of my pals father got the coupe quattro when it was brand new and it was Amazing. He mentioned the other week he would love one again. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    A 911.
    I had various posters, from 2.7RS, 911SS, 964, 993, 996...the models change with time, mood etc...but the desire and admiration doesn't.

    I still have framed pictures of the 2.7RS, 996 GT3, 996 GT3RS and 996 C4S on my walls today...sad. but true!

    Maybe one day...

    The trouble with dream cars is that the more expensive and aloof they are, the less chance there is of actually owning one.
    A 911 is within reach of most...a 959 less so...and an F1 less so again...

    But that Renault 5...that's a no brainer for me...if it means that much, and you can afford it, I'd be having it.

    Re: Childhood dream car up for sale!

    Nervus,

    The S3 is a mass model production car, you could buy another 5 tomorrow - any spec you like - no way is it better than a Turbo 2 IMO in terms of classic status.

    I know where you are coming from too as my dream childhood car is the URQ - going to get one one day, just cant convince the missus as well as Glen would like me to!

    Go for it mate

    Re: Childhood dream car up for sale!

    My childhood dream car is a BMW E30 M3!!!

    I know its not very expensive and I think you can pick a decent one up for about 7k??

    Ever since a young age I wanted one. Maybe a cecotto edition. About 480 produced.

    Everytime I see a m3 e30 I get all excited.

    I think I will get one after uni.

    That last reply had nothing to do with your Renault but I was basically trying to get at is that you should JUST BUY THE RENAULT.

    Dont tell your Mrs until she finds it in the garage, by then its too late. If she nags and pees you off, just go into the garage and sit in the Renault and remind yourself that it was all worth the trouble.

    Chances like this don't come that often matey. Mine is a Spanking new Charade Gtti then get it to 180bhp (from a 1.0L!) Had one years ago, but never had enough money to do that much to it. Gee's only if I had one now!

    Childhood dreams can't be more of an individual subject. If its what you always wanted.. Well push the boat out and do it mate!

    PS Stuff all the [censored] about it breaking down etc, alot of old coblers.
