    Default Peugeot, Renault and Citroen tests

    Having cleanup in workshop today and found box of old motor mags from 1971 onwards to 1990
    Road tests of 205 and R5, 24 hour race for 2CVs in Ireland, R18TX in international rally. 145hp R12 Rally cars. French cars featuring in top sporty buys under 10,000.
    Those 80s Frogs performance figures make most of Jap stuff look weak-even now apart from EVOs and Rex.

    Turbo R5 quicker to 100k and over quarter than Turbo RX7.
    R9s, R11s, R25s etc , 505s inc brief report on GTi Turbo- 125MPH!!!!

    Yes they were good Warren. The problem is we never saw any of the good stuff way down eher back then, except a few one off imports. R5 turbos would have been fun, very light car with the turbo boost=FUN
    505 turbo, great cars too.
