    Looks pretty on top, not so nice underneath. I expect the owner is testing the market. I would think half the asking price might be closer to the mark on the "replica".

    Sounds like they are going to piggy back on the record price of the 8G 1300 in their last November auction.



    As for the Ebay car, it has a a bit of a confused identity, identified as a 1965 car with a much earlier R1130 oval plate. Good luck to the vendor.

    What is the logic? 100hp - wow! My little Toyota has over 100kw and costs a lot less

    There isn't any logic. If there was, all OHOS would end up being crushed. The line for the Peugeot 504 used to be "You have to drive one to understand". I've driven a 504 and just don't "get" them. However, my 8G with its eager engine, 353 five-speed 'box and nice steering is a nice car to drive to me. Is it Euro 52K nice? I've no idea, and probably wouldn't pay that. But I do know I wouldn't even cross the road to look to buy a 100kW Toyota.

    Any old car no matter how special or rare or precious is worth exactly what someone is prepared to pay...no more no less.

    For example, is an XY GTHO Phase three really worth $700k..? Some think so.

    I am sure there would be a cashed up enthusiast who will pay the 30k euro for the R8G

    In a twisted sort of way i understand what you are saying.
    A mate has a shed full of old and vintage cars including a 1936 Daimler. Have driven the '56 Humber Super Snipe or whatever it is called and it is horrible, but he likes them

    Also get why you wouldn't cross the road for a 100kw + mid engine, rear wheel drive little Toyota - because you are worried that you'd like it

    Well, we do agree on something. Heavy to drive and stodgy to steer, the old Snipe is a indeed a horrible thing to drive.

    And yet we diverge again :-). It is one of those MR2 things, nice car. But I don't "fit" sporty looking cars, as one of the least fashionable people in the world, they just don't work for me. So even if I didn't have to cross the road I still wouldn't buy it, same if it was a Renault 17, or even an Alpine A110, cars that I can appreciate, but they just don't suit me.

    My latest OHOS acquisition 10 days ago is an example of how I sort of function. In an unusual (for me) logistical exercise involving planes, airport security, cars and a boat, I drove a basically sight unseen car back from Tasvegas to RAdelaide. Was it supreme confidence or madness? I don't really consider it a big trip, but it was a bit of both really in hindsight, but having talked with the PO I didn't really have a problem with the car or its preparation. And even though it was mostly wet and windy, and the car likely has only 53bhp at best, the heater worked and I enjoyed every 1/10th of a mile that rolled under its wheels. It even sailed through Regency Park for its rego inspection with no problems the day after its arrival. I'm just a sucker for small light Euro (non-sporty looking) cars :-).

    I thought there were rules about mentioning non-French marques in the main forums. Last time I mentioned an involvement with another non-French marque, I was labelled an "ego-stroking tool" (ok, so the last bit may be accurate, but the first bit, hmm). So I'm abiding by the rules. :-)

    The border moved a few times during history as I understand, particularly in the Alsace region, so Renaults could have taken on a more Germanic flavor had history worked out a bit differently.

    That Gordini does look nice though doesn't it? (subtle shift back on track).

    It does look a neat little car, though they could bin the, what looks like an ex-Lancia 5 speed, faux wood gear knob. Also the Gordini badge on the rear is in the wrong place, and I'm not sure if it is because it is such a late model car is why it has the Renault 8 badge on the front guard. And I'll just pinch the original Bendix brake booster to replace the non-original PBR one on my car. :-)

    Agreed Simon. It's not all about HP/KW. Good thing we all have different preferences. Just like oversteering RW drive. I did enjoy driving your type of car but they are even more fun with a bit more power.

    I suppose the other car did have a substantial cache of spare parts included, that may have contributed to the premium. But it's hard to imagine there is supposed to be a European GFC, or it may be the case as in most recessions, quality property will always find a buyer.....

    I think the Alpine looks like many things, but sporty is probably not the first that comes to mind.

    As for the R17, hmmm, I guess you can say it looks sporty, but not overly so. Pretty tame the sporty component in its looks.

    It might have been in Quokka, now that I think of it. A nice little Renault 5TL(?) for sale, can't remember the price, but I seem to remember 1100cc? Or something. Looked nice.

    Oh, and I'd be happy to help someone buy it, I am not into R5s at all.
