    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!

    lovely


    Re: An unassuming homologation special - 205 Rallye

    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.

    Re: An unassuming homologation special - 205 Rallye

    Very nice, used to have one! Bought it new at the time. Only problem with the car was starting the engine when hot. The carburetors tend to overflow, resulting into burning the starter motor. But what a great cat to drive!!!


    Re: An unassuming homologation special - 205 Rallye

    I remember my Escort suffered the same problem! - congrats, nostalgia is a wonderful thing.

    It even runs on Weber carburettors!

    Re: An unassuming homologation special - 205 Rallye

    I took the 205 to our place in the South of France, to have it on the roads where it actually belongs. Small, winding, quiet. What a lovely, lovely thing. They don't make them like this anymore, nothing would come close in delicacy, feel good factor, ...

    Brilliant

    Re: An unassuming homologation special - 205 Rallye

    How any times did you go around that corner ? indecision


    Re: An unassuming homologation special - 205 Rallye

    My first car was a 205 GTI 1.9

    I have often been thinking if I should try to get one again, but never really seriously been giving it much effort.

    I would like to try one, and see if it really is as good as I remember. I remember a Quirky gearstick and a really nice long first gear. Some of the things I did in that car, oh boy, happy I survived. 


    Re: An unassuming homologation special - 205 Rallye

    Very nice. That last pic looks straight out of a 90s family album. 


    Re: An unassuming homologation special - 205 Rallye

    Great car, nice pictures!

    Do you enjoy driving the 205 or is it more the idea that is enjoyable ?
