    Default 101 cars you must drive

    Hi all,

    american show on Fox last night 101 cars you must drive.

    Number 3 was R5 turbo. The host was saying the standard R5 was sold in the US as "le Car" ....typical american crap.
    The R5 was never ment to be sold in the Us but some got through.
    Did we have R5 turbo in oz or only by personel import.

    Awsome looking car in the Turbo 2 set up

    Bugger Knew I should have put that in watch for last night when I saw it.
    The blurb said 2CV as well, am I right?



    We didn't get the turbo 1 or 2 in Australia, nor any R5 in any guise. There's a few R5 Gt turbos here now, a couple of ex-pat Poms brought the odd one out & jr a member here had one also. There are a few R5 rear engined Turbos as well, a white one and a blue one from memory and possibly one or 2 more.

    There's a cool R5Turbo in the US at the moment, black with red interior from memory, that pops up on eBay occasionally. you could get it here for under $30,000 I think, make a nice partner for the 225.

    Actually, the R5 or 'le car' was listed in the US from 1975 to 1986....which kinda leads a person to believe they were meant to be sold there...

    You don't make a car available for sale in a country for 11 years if it isn't meant to be sold there

    For someone more adept than I at using VPN thingies or proxies to access overseas sites blocked for use outside of the US...

    Perhaps you can rip it and host locally for us?
