WHY I LOVE MY RE­NAULT 5

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Buying & Selling -

Richard has owned about ten Re­nault 5s since buy­ing his first in 1989. He’s down to just the one now, though – along­side a 9, 11, four 18s and an early Clio. ‘My dad had two 5s and when the MkII came out I saw one in the lo­cal dealer. I thought it looked great – very ap­peal­ing as it was full of char­ac­ter. Hav­ing now owned sev­eral I haven’t changed my mind; these cars are great fun to drive, cost very lit­tle to run and are very prac­ti­cal too. My 1.4 Monaco had been in the same fam­ily from new un­til I bought it five years ago. It’s done just 41,000 miles and is in vir­tu­ally per­fect con­di­tion; all it’s needed is some fresh paint on the cor­ners of the bumpers.’
