    i've a bit of an odd request.

    does anyone know where i would begin trying to find a renault fuego for sale?

    the first car i ever drove was my parents' 1982 renault fuego, it had a 1.6L and 5 speed and was fun, looked cool, and had the best seats ever. i'd like to find a turbo version, i've seen a couple in my lifetime, but i'd not be picky if i found a n/a car, so long as it has a manual trans..

    i've tried ebay, autotrader, and cars.com and can not find any for sale anywhere in the country.

    any ideas, renault clubs, or any other tips? ours rusted out and got crushed with 27,000 miles on it.

    You gotta stop buying cars based on childhood nostalgia. You got your 2nd Gen. because your aunt had one when you were a kid, right? Who owns that one now?

    My point- look at how hard you've found it to just find a Fuego- what're you going to do for parts when things start to go bad? Besides that- is it really the car that you remember fondly- or what you did with/in the car?

    I dunno about a Fuego, but I've been looking for an R5 Turbo II (otherwise known as the performance version of that horrible turd, LeCar). Had one for about 5 months in high school and LOVED IT!

    Will beg for parts, I'm not proud.
