What Im wondering about is how you could have an H reg Clio? You sure its not a 5 GT Turbo and your eyes have gone funny?

Oh yes - there are a few early H-reg Clios running about. May 1991 was the Clios first appearence in the UK - still H-reg you see.

Most Ive seen are in a kind of burnt gold or sick-yellow colour though. Think initially it was only the 1.2, RT 1.4 and 1.9 diesel that were available.

I used to live on Blackpool Street, then I moved to Branston Road opposite the Uxbridge Arms.

I do know quite alot of people in Burton. Im down there all the time. (Usually p****d though).

Ben when you see another H reg Clio (apart from the Tubo) get a picture, because I have never ever seen one in my life. I have seen a few later ones like P-reg Willy 3.

PaulRobo what sort of power is the 5 lump putting out?

And where was the conversion done?

yep, we all dress badly as time flys by.............

and, of course, the age of the clio dictates the condition...

yeh ! Verilly.. thou shalt follow the crede of age and mileage...

for, it telleth the whole truth...

and, long shall it be generalised for the good of all... and ALL men... and aliens.....
  Clio v6

Just browsing around the net I see quite a few mentions of H reg Clios. However many other articles suggesting the Clio was introduced in 1991 ( J ).

Europe seems to have many more 1990 models and lots of parts catalogues list for Clio 1990- on.

It would be nice to see a first model in mint condition.

Its 91 H. I wouldnt say it was mint, but there is no rust. Just need a good clean really and the side bump strip putting back on.

The car is on the rollers in two weeks, so bear wiv me till then and i will have an output for yall

ive seen a few h regs but most have got badly rusting rear arches, i have seen the sickly yellow colour too, dont know what they were thinking with that one!

I left my nova with Daley he was getting rid of all the parts on there as most of the payment. Daley may tell you what i paid for it, if not youll have to guess. He was very reluctant to sell it though, but im sure he would do another for the right person.

Halesowen, but i work in tamworth.

I wondered whos car it was. You wouldnt notice me thou company blue golf! ah well, its free i suppose.
