    Re: saving an ugly duckling...the RX5

    I'm tipping you'll be getting a call from Dennis next week !

    He has been looking for an Rx5 for ages, I told him about an immaculate red Rx5 I see around Gladesville and Five Dock from time to time but havent seen it for a few months now... old guy drives it, looks surprisingly good.

    A shame the original motor isn't staying with the car but better than nothing. Rick has 2 or 3 variants in 121 guise at the moment if you need anything. Is that the original colour ?

    Ive always had a soft spot for the rx5 even if at times I wouldnt openly admit it. Great to see you are going to save it and another car for club rego. :tu:

    Nice point to start with. That red one looks great.

    Just a question though. Does anyone know if that plastic radiator fan shroud would fit my 12a rx3?. They look quite similar in shape and design.
    Might have better luck finding a rx5 one other than rx3.

    Regards Kurt.

    Nice to see one that will get your magic touch Dave.

    I'd love a 121L or even a 929L. It's a sickness, but it's sad to see cars unloved.
