£1750 to a forum member, I do not think there is a more mechanically sound one for the money...I have done the works on this car, but have now had a change of heart and decided to keep my GT.
only a few hundred quid away from being cosmentically perfect as well...she is a solid 7.5 out of 10 as it is, wouldn't take much for that to be a 10!
