Amongst the many cars that caught my eye at Tirana, Albania, for the display that Retro Albania had put together at the centre of town, Skandenberg Square, there were a couple of lovely Renaults in very fine fettle.
And then en route to the town of Peshkopi, when we took a coffee break, a group of five historic vehicles, which were also driving to the same town for the event there (Retro n'Dibër), stopped by. And amongst them was this handsome Renault 25, driven by the husband-wife team of Rejna Kulla and Gentian Çystri.
“And of the two, it’s Rejna who is the one who is the craziest about cars,” confirmed Sibora Xhemali, from Retro Albania.
In fact, Rejna didn’t catch the being-crazy-about-classic-cars virus from her husband, but from her father Muharrem Kulla. And then she managed to infect her husband… which was not surprising given her infectious enthusiasm for everything Renault.
“I have been collecting miniature car models, catalogues with a series of vehicle figures, stamps, as well as many other things since I was a child, but cars remain my biggest passion and my love for them grows more and more every day,” asserts Rejna.
“I have always had the support of my family because my father was a professional driver of government services in Albania and cars were part of his daily life,” explains Rejna, as she showed me a photo of her father, a slim tall man standing ramrod straight, next to a Volvo, an official car in the services of the Albanian government.
“Also, my husband is a mechanical engineer, and we are never far from cars,” adds Rejna. “After seeing and repairing many car models over the years, we fell in love with the French Renaults, and we have been collecting historic Renaults for a long time now.”
