Pictures of my R5 GTL Laureate

This Renault 5 GTL Laureate, has a licence plate registration date from 11/14/1984 and was purchased in February, 1985 for 810.900$00 PTE (€ 4,044.75) and it was my first car. I drove it for a few years having passed it to my father later on. He kept it for a few years more until in 1998 it returned to my possession. Except for a major overhaul of the engine and exterior body repaint made in September 2001, its condition is totally original.
