hey , a noobie hello .


just bought the blue 225 3 door from john at parra , nice guy , reasonable deal . its back to the renno fold... 1st car was a sunflower yellow 10 ' s ' . for those not familiar with older rennos, it had a full camping body and round dials incl a tacho [ the standard 10 had an awful rectangular speedo and no tacho ! ] and befoie that a family member had one of the 1st R 8's in oz . they were way ahead of the game back then . 4 discs . independant suspension . awesome .


only family renno tragedy . an older family member actually ordered a new 1300 gordini but cancelled the order when he got engaged . maybe should've cancelled the engagement instead . and kept the gordini . :shock:


first sat in the 225 when a family member got the 182 cup there last year and lusted after it ever since . so when saw it advertised as a low k demo ... hot footed it out there and got it ! its very noice . and blue is good as it matches the 182 . 8)


see you on the next brekky run . :D:D
