Re: should i buy a gtv??

price seem about right, ok mileage is a bit high but the engine should be ok for another 50k at least, after all the design has been around for years.

i don't think that i would buy another red car because of the amount of polishing it needs to keep it that way, my last red car kept wanting to turn pink !

listen out for any clonking noise when going over bumps, look at the swinging arm where it joins the alloy beam that runs across the width of the car.
if you can see some shank of the bolts then they need replacing, well thats how i found out that mine were gone.
try to get the car jacked up of the wheels and double check for movement with a large screwdriver.
