    That Clio Cup has been there a while. I remember it posted here before the fire went through, it was discussed then because it was such a new car.
    Me thinks was probably some knob who has driven rear drive cars bought it and was thinking to himself, don't lecture me I know cars(aka the guy in the king-gee ad from years ago and the dingy..Don't lecture me I know boats)...then proceeded to drive through the corner,paniced>lift-off, loss of control and bamm...telephone pole
    I wonder how hard a Cup engine>>> Scenic RX4 transplant would be?? Make a nice every day car then.
    Actually I'd love to shoe horn the engine into my R10S rep. What name would I use then? R10-182
    Would make a good motorkhana special, with transverse rear engine/gearbox

    Looks like he missed that braking marker....

    Engine might be stuffed, but there might be some goodies salvageable, depending on what it can be bought for. Rims, cup suspension, and the exhaust bits that give it the extra 10hp over the rcs 172....
    Take the long way home....

    Then it would be unlikely that he would hit the pole head on.

    An interesting point. But that doesn’t seem to have happened with the 2001 MY Clio Cup cars, however there were 85 of those compared to 30 of the F1 Cup Clio’s. I’d say you would have to mothball an F1 Cup car to realise any sort of collectable status over the next say 20-30 years, and after that you would probably have done better by investing the money in some sort of term deposit, or at least using the car and enjoying it. As an example, does anybody know if the 205 Classic (last of the 205 GTi’s) is worth any more than a “normal” Pug 205GTi of the same age and condition?

    Ah the expensive white stripes are now cheaper! I would imagine the "value" of the F1 Cup is not so much the equipment level but the actual F1 Cup limited edition tag.

    Maybe that's important for some folk - not for me I'm afraid...

    Out of interests sake - How would one "mothball" a modern day car for 20-30 years ? drain all the fluids YES/NO, take off all rubber items that could crack and break down YES/NO, Save 10,000ltr of fuel as there won't be any YES/NO.

    There are special preservative oil that could be used to fill the engine and gearbox, probably similar stuff to what the military uses to long term store some of their vehicles. Things like brake fluid would probably be better off replaced regularly to prevent internal corrosion. Then again a factory fill would less likely be oxygenated than something poured in by the owner. Perhaps again there is some sort of preservative brake fluid that could be sourced.

    The other things that would likely suffer from lack of use are shock absorbers and tyres, I remember UK Car magazine testing a Clio Williams that had been stored for a while for a B2B comparison with an RS Clio, it needed new shockers after the storage for it to be used. Probably all depends on the storage conditions too. Dry, dehumidified, not too hot and not too cold and out of the sun would be the orders for successful storage.

    There would be only a few examples of mothballed “everyday” cars I know off, a 20 millionth limited edition VW Beetle, never registered, that sold for about $15K ish eight years or so ago. Then there was a Martini Olive VW Beetle from the final Australian assembled batch that was sold about 10 years ago, the asking on that was $18K, then there is the final Chrysler Valiant manufactured, with delivery k’s, that recently sold for about $30K. So looking at those cars in isolation, it has to be a vehicle of significance for it to command big bucks in present day terms.

    Even using the UK example of the Patrick Collection where they purchased new, significant or low mileage examples of everyday cars for preservation, when those cars were sold of due to economic circumstances in the late 90’s they did not realise any windfall over their initial list price. In reality with a car, you are better off getting some enjoyment out of it, even with minimal use on fair days keeping the k’s down and the cogs happy rather than just sticking it in the garage hoping to make a fortune in years hence.

    Nobody (I hope!) ever bought a Renault to make a fortune on resale, but original and well preserved older models are always well appreciated at CD’s!


    Ooo, just realised I've infringed the Kenfuego rule by going way OT as well as mentioning Volkswagen in my reply. Where do I send my 50 cents?

    Simon spend the 50 cents and buy another ticket Topic was finished anyway, so no matter and the VVV stuff incidental don't get huffed and puffed about it and I am sure your not that dumb not to understand why I intervened, anyway Richard said it all .

    Here in Victoria we have a pretty good relationship with the Eurocca guys and gals and we tolerate the Pug owners at least they join in and I kinda like the dainty citroens, and PeterMelb, and his supporters, Top guy, can't do enough to advance french cars and they even enjoy us talking about our French Fuegos.

    Spoiler and irritators, yeah theres a few of them. Helpful guys like yourself and others welcome

    Anyway if you got out of line I'd be the first to tell yah
