GTV Cup on the street

anyone think that keeping a GTV Cup on the street in London is madness?

I desparately want one but have no garage.

Re: GTV Cup on the street

Again I say it depends on where in London you live, bearing in mind that only a real petrolhead will know that its a Cup on the street... being a pretty rare car the uneducated will most likely just think its a gtv with a bodykit.

what are the general state of everyone elses cars in the street as well?... it wouldnt be nice to wake up and find some chump has smashed off a wing mirror and added some go faster stripes to your pride & joy

the thing about one parking spot could be a really expensive car and in the next space a real piece of junk, you never know who's going to be parking in the next space

I wouldnt have a problem parking one on my street as it's nice and wide with good parking..but I would get a high level Alarm fitted.

Good luck if you go for it, I'd love a Cup

Not sure about London but I parked the Cup on my street in Liverpool for a few months till I had the drive re paved

No damage

Re: GTV Cup on the street

I'd say only you can answer that question.

Personally I keep mine in the garage. When I had the Merc I kept that in the street as I was using it everyday, and the missus' Micra was in the garage as she used it infrequently.

The Merc only had it's tyres slashed once.

There's no way I'd leave my Cup in the street overnight, as I live slap bang in the restaurant/pub district and the roads around mine are where everybody parks, so it's not the same people every day. However, if you live in a residential street where the only people parking are your neighbours, then you shouldn't have a problem.
