    Default La Grenouille Orange R17 TL

    The Orange Frog

    Thought I should share the love. This is my second R17. I love the look of them.
    If I wanted speed then I would have bought a Porsche 928 S4 (god, they are going up in price)
    But the R17 looks better.

    Blood orange actually - courtesy of renaultmark. Mark, a great choice of shade to the original!
    I will be removing some rust and a respray in the winter through to summer.
    Engine??? Not sure what to do. but it goes ok.
    Suspension and brakes need work
    All comments, help and advice are welcome
    Thanks for looking.

    There's a nest in the factory prepared for her hibernation over winter. (hopefully not extended for two winters)

    That exposure's probably done a bit to nudge values up! Looks nice as it sits.

    Thanks john. It did take a lot of love and hard work ( lots of money spent ) but at the end of the day, I had a good car to drive around and received a lot of positive comments from people. You will have the fun and enjoyment that I had...you are giving the R17 the lift for many more years of pleasure.
