    An unassuming homologation special - 205 Rallye

    Got this fantastic birthday present, a '89 Peugeot 205 Rallye. A true homologation special for the price of a set of PCCB's on your 911 and they really are a genuine hoot to drive. 794kg pushed by a little 1.3 engine with carburettors. 

    Thank you to my generous colleague, brilliant present. Smiley

    It is, and that's the point as well. Modern metal in combination with modern enforcement is such a contradiction, overly capable but nowhere to use it. This you wring out and you're still within the limits, it's a refreshing feeling...

    I’ve been seriously considering buying an old BMW as a bit of a project / fun car. Ideally a CSI 3.0 or, my father had a 2 door e30 when I was a kid, maybe one of those. 


    Re: An unassuming homologation special - 205 Rallye

    Bought one brand new in my twenties! great car I was extremely proud of my purchase. Only problem the carburetors tend to drown when hot. As consequence you too long starting, burning the starter motor. but fun car to drive!

    Great gift, and great colleague kiss I had looked at these cars about a year or two ago when my son wanted to ''invest'' in an older car. Prices have sky rocked here and you can hardly find any. A great collector .

    Another really cool hatch would be Clio 182 Trophy, highly regarded as one of the best made, and -I think- only 50 LHD made, only for the CH-market.
