Re: Advice / help please
Seen some Cups with smashed front splitters, so guess they're low.
A wrong'un will bleed you dry, a good one will still require quite expensive servicing. With cambelt changes, wishbones, some dentmaster work, exhaust, brakes etc, my usual service bill is around £1k, and that's for – as the specialist told me – one of the best condition GTVs he works on...
So budget £1k for servicing a year, some years will be better than others, maybe some worse? Do lots of research, see plenty, get to a meet or two as you'll be able to check out what cherished cars ought to look like, then search out one that's been very well maintained.
