Admittedly there are cheaper ones out there but generally speaking they're cheaper for a reason.....probably needing money spending on them to bring them up to the prepared standard of mine.
It would seem that most active people on here prefer to buy a cheaper car that needs work, which they do over a period of time, rather than one fully prepared at the higher price.
I am of course generalising as there are always bargains to be had if you're prepared to wait, especially for a V6 Spider as there are so few in the country, less than 200?
IMO, the TS is a nice car but the V6 is a great car.
Clive I was once that person who thought, ah his cars are way overpriced, sure I can buy a gtv for 300 pound (albeit a ts) and fix it's problems.
The same week I bought my gtv for the equivalent of 300 pound in ireland, a beautiful proteo red one sold for 1500 pounds.
Thankfully I have agreed a price with a friend to do all the work on it for me before starting, but Jesus if I was paying proper rates, including the parts I had to buy, I'd have been able to buy two of those well sorted gtv's (all were ts, v6s are impossible to find over here).
To add to that, my gtv had been owned by an enthusiast and had over 5k spent on it over the last 4 years. It wasn't like it was neglected, mechanically.
For anyone who wants a gtv, unless you have access to an ed china garage kind of setup, buy a well sorted one. It might cost you more from the outset and you think you're getting a bargain. You're not.
If you're good with spanners, or have thousands to throw at a gtv that is in all honesty fit for the scrapper, then go for it.
Are Clive's gtv's overpriced? Perhaps, however you know your buying a perfect one. If anyone wants an idea of how much a suspension overhaul head onto shop4parts and price up new suspension for the rear. I honestly don't think you'd have much change for 1000 and that's be for you get someone to remove the old ones and fit the new ones.
