Hardest part now is what is the cause. Might not need a full strip, hopefully it will be just the gaskets (head).
1. Id ask Ned to give the car a good check over, make sure the GT is worth spending the money on!
2. Is the above it positive then find the cause, hopefully itll just be the head gasket, but get the work done! Youll only waste more money looking for another car!....and remember its only money, you aint gonna take it away with you...long as your not proper skint lol.
3. Your GT less at the moment! If someone knocked on your door and said, ive got this Alfa for sale, mint engine, new shocks etc....yours for £1500.......what would be your answer.
