Renault 11 TSE from Reinder Boonstra: A pleasant Frenchman

ER Classics Desktop 2022

The preference for classic cars, such as the Renault 11 TSE from this article, establishes contacts with colorful people who give their own meaning to the (car) hobby. People who want to bring classics to life by tinkering. Others who purchase the classic and like to drive and show it off. And even cleaners who usually leave the car in the garage and enjoy the property.

It is clear to the Boonstra family from Metslawier that only Renault plays a role. For the older generation the new models and the younger generation the youngtimers such as the Renault 11 TSE from Reinder Boonstra. 

There are a wide variety of viruses with which you can become infected. With this family, the Renault virus is persistent of its kind that you cannot get rid of. Drug searches have been stopped because it has become clear that Reinder's grandfather has begun not to drive any cars other than Renault in his entire life. 

Clearly a matter of passing on the (Renault) DNA

Reinder is completely taken up by his car hobby. In addition to his beautiful Renault 11 TSE from 1983 (so already 35 years old), he collects all kinds of documentation about Renault. And also the models are not missing in his display case ...

Reinder has joined a growing group of enthusiasts of young timers. The group tries to keep the mobile heritage from the XNUMXs alive. And we naturally want to promote that enthusiasm.

  1. I once had a Renault 11 TSE electronic. What a nice car that was. With the thick Radio Renault and the electronic dashboard. The highlight was the talking Board computer. I have never looked forward to one error message: lights out of order. Check parking and number plate lights.
    After more than 25 years I can still remember it 🤓
