    since getting rid of the Williams 2 i got it in my head i wanted a clio v6 but after looking around most of them needed a cam belt change and there were another few things that i was not happy about on the cars i viewed, its about a grand to do the change it over as its an engine out job :( plus i would of got myself in more debt. So i have always wanted a Renault 5 gtt after looking i found one with low mileage and been very looked after it had loads of history, mot's, it had a full respray and engine rebuild with loads of new bits including a turbo about 10 years ago but since then it only done 1100 miles and sat in the garage and only used now and then so everything still looks new [​IMG]
    The car has 75000 on the clock with old mots as proof its currently running at around 130bhp has a few upgrades but not over the top really pulls well no knocks nothing, done about 150 miles yesterday and im over the moon with it right little go kart [​IMG] and feels as fast as my Williams was to.
    really checked around and there no rust the floor underneath has been treated so very happy, always loved them and i am glad i got this now and it only cost me £2300 so happy days [​IMG]
    just needs 4 new tyres as they have cracked

    why the weird layout to the bonnet vents? that one slightly offset above the group of three looks really odd.

    Hi, I have only just joined this site and found your thread. That's the first time I've seen a Radbourne Racing bonnet since I had one fitted to a customers GT Turbo in the early 1990's.
    Regards.
