Quality!I would guess the R4 buggy to have either R5 Gordini or R16 TX engine then?

The phase 1 19 Turbo diesel is certainly rare, I only ever saw 3 or 4 of them even when they were new. Does it have GTS or TSE interior trim (looking at your pic the headrests look like TSE ones)

Re: the Renault 20, there is a fella here in Ireland selling 3 Renault 20s and is threatening to crush them by the end of the month if they don't sell. Now we've all come across the "I'll crush it, I really will" sales tactic on ebay before so it's hard to know. Two of the 20s are said to be in good condition with the other one being possibly a spares only car.

Renomad, are the gold R20s only fit for spares? They look decent in the pics - are they rotten underneath? It's a pity if they are.

That guy appears to have done an awesome job of hoovering up all remaining examples of Fiat 132's and letting them go completely to shit. Nice one!

also from my friends barn a quick quiz shot (name the car and the engine )

Looks like an a 1400 Sierra engine in the back of an R8/R10? Is the lump from an R5, or even a Volvo 340? Carb looks quite small?

Mine (R11-sourced) looked like that at least. :)

Was it from a 16TS? (scary if it was! :shock: )

See the pictures now - damn work internet! Surely there must be some useful bits on the R20's? As Mouseflakes says the wings look good, not to mention the bumpers and probably numerous other bits?

What can I say? I'm overwhelmed! :D I'm just wondering what you might have offered if I'd got the questions completely right! (though, if you'd offered a ride in the 16TX-engined R4 buggy, I'd have declined it for reasons of underpant preservation)Thanks Paul - a very grateful PM has been sent!

Bit of a late-comer to this thread, and am lost in amazement!! The black phase 1 25 limo is just stunning, would love a ride in that!
