I love it, can't wait to see it in person :)

I really like the fact that it's at least 10 times the car the regular Le car's were and they still only increased to a 4 bolt hub. I may still have a mint steerinbg wheel and shift knob somewhere at the far that I'll never have use for, if I find them I'll ship them down.

You know Daniel's going to be jealous. :lol: Very cool find, takes me back to France in the late 80's when I was over there and all the hoodlums were driving modified R5s.

Gray market car. A buddy of mine has a white one sitting in his front yard. he's got a performance pack to put on it that's suppose to Really bump up the HP. Road in it a few time's. & for a rear wheel drive it felt like it was on rail's. I'll snap a few pick's if I get a chance. He want's me to paint it Kawasaki green for him. Don't know why. . . . .he's color blind as it is. Nice find. . . . .ball park of what you paid, if you don't mind.

A Renault without rust...that's a good start. :lol:

Great project, good luck with it Matt.

That's because it's a California car with a fiberglass body! :D Rear quarters, front fenders and hood are all fiberglass. Chassis is clean though, that was a big plus.

Awesome project, I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with it :tup:

What are your plans for performance mods? :ph34r:

No performance mods for now, going for bone stock on it. But depending on ts future, I might go for coilovers, they're easy to source and make a big difference.

Awesome! Yeah, we'll have to go slide around in it.

They were all grey market, yes.

But that color will ruin its value, tell him that. :(

As for what I paid: I don't usually share that (see garage link for the wagon). But I got a good deal on it, enough of a deal that it's allowing me to buy NOS parts at a premium without issues.

There was, yes.

There's one for sale out of Tucson now for almost $40K. :rolleyes: Given that it's been modified in odd ways, I doubt the seller will unload it anytime soon.
