(havent posted pics of my collection less than 15yrs old as stiil every day cars)

very sadly unable to find my albums going back 30 years,

i have actually had on the road at least one of the following 4,5,6,7,8,9,10.11,12 14,15,16,17,18,19,20,21,25,30, trafics and master

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.

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. :)

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!
