Hi I'm new to the site, have a 91 gt turbo I've had for years, it's been blown a fair few times, I live by two sayings "drive it like you stole it" and "if in doubt flat out" looking forward to having the beast on the road again. Planning a trip Newcastle to Amsterdam, down Germany, stopping off at the ring of course! dropping into the top if Italy then over to France for some mountain passes back up to Britain! Wonder if it'll make it :?

Hi all. I live is Sri Lanka and sort of a collector. Classic car scene here is a tough one because the regulations don't allow importation of old vehicles. The general interest in classic cars have picked up in the last 5 years or so, so they are becoming increasingly costly to acquire.

My life with Renault 5 GT Turbos go back over 25 years - I was one of 5 people that imported 5 GTTs to Sri Lanka. Yes, you understood right. In all, there are only 5 cars in the country. I imported mine from the UK in the early 1990 - it was a tungy. In addition, at the time, there was a black, a red, and a blue. All Phase 2. In addition, there was a white Phase 1. Following the arrival of my son, I had to part with my 5 in 2000, and regretted it ever since. The good news is that I'm now friends with the current owner who has cares deeply for the car. Anyway, to make a long story short, I bought the red car about two years ago - in a project state. It sat in my garage till a month or so ago since I was progressively collecting all the parts I require. It is now in a work shop and the tinkering work has started. I've imported pretty much everything from and engine and transmission to fenders, a dashboard, interior trim, bonnet, etc. The list in endless.

Among other cars I own, is a 205 GTI 1.9 - Sri Lanka's only 1.9. There are two other GTIs, which are 1.6s. That too was a project when I bought, and went through a patient and painstaking restoration. Its worth every minute and penny because it is an absolutely joy to drive. But of course, I miss the punch if the GT turbo and I can't wait to get behind the wheel.

Shall keep the forum posted on my progress.

Thank you.
