My 1988 Peugeot 205 GTi, a lot of blood sweat and happy tears

Mr. Orlove forced me to become a Peugeot 205 GTi owner. Thanks Raphael. Really, thank you. I can now say from experience they're truly great cars. I bought mine in August this year, a car that provided a solid basis but which needed a lot of love. And love it received.
