My new car >>Renault 5 Turbo 2 from John Price Rallying / England

This R 5 Turbo 2 is modell 1984(1985?) and it was for sale in John Price Rallying.

I fly with my friend Harry Lindh to see this 5 Turbo (and two other R 5 Turbo as well)

We were four days in England( two days in John garage)

This car was just the best and with very low kilometers! 36 000km and only 1 owner.

Renault 5 Turbo was in garage 16 years and now driving at all !!

Everything is in originall condition at this car and I mean everything! Paint, body, interieur, engine ...everything!

It was so good loking that I thought it is build a gain(resored) but no. Everything is original!

No any damages, no rust, no repaint, no no no...!

I make a deal with John for the second day and afther driving and testing the car. Yes and afther a very long nigh with out sleeping!!

We travell back to Finland and looking foward to see Renault 5 Turbo 2 and John/Stewe a gain.

Harry says that I smile all the time when we come back to Finland. Just wondering WHY?

Here is a few foto from our first trip.

It was a VERY!! difficult to drive (rent)car from the WRONG side and at the WRONG side on the road!! Just GRAZY and very very dangerose for us and thouse other people in the road. Thanks for thouse two friendly English Policeman who was so nice and understanding for us!!
We had our own Police escort to the hotell at 01.00 a clock in the night!!

Here is the car!!

Here we "slept" and have at first time "ENGLISH" breakfast! Look for the picture how "small" it was (wery good)!!

Testing the car again!!!!

We have a deal Mr. John Price!

Here is a few foto from our next trip.

To get the Renault 5 Turbo 2 to my garage! At this time, I travel with my friend Jarmo Sipiläinen

Afther the last time Harry says to me " I never come with you in to the car if that is from rightside driven car and if YOU drive it!!"

I just few times but the Harrys side(LEFT side in England) over the edge (ditch) like in rallies and thats it!!

Maybe this was a joke !?

Eglish breakfast a gain!!

My son Jere is driving with R 5 Turbo 2 after I have polish it from every where(not from the engine and gearbox).

Yes, I knew this is not 418 blue colored and there is no any stripes....yet ! (joke)

Still I LIKE this car, I like it very much. It is very funny to drive and it is fast !!
