Why do people ruin them ?
« on: 10:29, Wed 06 April 2011 »
Ok - the Renault 5 Cabriolet wasnt the prettiest car in the world to start off with but why kit it up and paint it yellow.

There was a VW advert a few years back and it stated ....... "Some things are best left alone", damn good advice if you ask me !!

i wish people would just leave them standard...the way they should be!!! i understand people like different things but i personally think that the 5gtt is a classic and should be left alone.

Although it does look like they've done a good job of it, it really has been raped within an inch of it's life! :lol:

I remember when that 'conversion' was done, a fair few years ago.  The car was in a very bad way, and the original soft-top was ruined way beyond repair.  As new R5 soft-tops aren't exactly common, the guy (I can't remember his name), decided to do something to keep it on the road, instead of scrapping it.

It's not to my taste either, but it's a very rare car that could have/maybe should have been scrapped.  Plus, the guy who did it was a bit of a loony  :lol:
Been around these cars for too damn long!
