some of you may have seen my other post about possibly buying a GTV!!
Well I bought the GTV I mentioned!!
There was just a couple of little things that have cropped up since i'd paid the deposit, somebody ha clipped the passenger side wing mirror so the casing was cracked & also the drivers side front sidelight/indicator unit had got a hole in the lense where a stone or something has hit it!!
They're not too much of a problem, the guy knocked me £100 of the agreed price to take these into account!! I've managed to get both parts off Ebay for £55 delivered!!
As for the rest of the car, well it's just as described!!
Another bonus is that I was meant to go pick it up on last wknd, but the guy works away a lot & the day we'd agreed he didn't get home till in the afternoon, was roughly gonna be a 3.5hr round trip for me!! My sis was gonna take me so I was gonna give her somne cash for fuel, trhen I would'#ve had to prob fill the GTV up!!
As I was going out early eve on sat i'd said I didn't have time to get over to him with him getting back late!! So he said he'd drive over himself if i couyld just drop him at train station!! So that's what we did!! I offered him cash for petrol & train fare but he wouldn't have it!! He seemed a very nice genuine bloke!!
Anyways, i'm really happy with it!! Although i'm not using it until 1st march!! It's got no tax & i'm being i tight bugger & refusing to give the government cash for 2 weeks worth of tax I haven't used!!
My other cars tax also runs out at the end of this month so works out just fine!!
Somebody mentioned about the timing belt etc, i've got a bill here from Nov 2007 when the timing belt & pulleys etc were done!! Car has done about 18k since then!!
Once i've got the wing mirror & sidelight/indicator replaced & given it a good polish i'll get some pics on !!
I'm now very impatiently counting down the days till the end of this month!!
