The Renault 5 – even when it isn’t in giant-killing GT Turbo form – is huge fun to hoof around in. There’s something hugely rewarding about making the most of its supple suspension through the corners, which more than makes up for the lack of straight-line pace in the lower-spec versions. It’s one of the most affordable classics out there, and it’s fun that’s tempered by the ability to eke 40 out of a gallon. Many years ago I bought one for just £100 and was blown away by how addictive it was to drive, whether it was around town or on the back roads. In fact, I’m still weighing up whether to add another to my classic collection.
