My beloved GTV

Just thought i would share with you my GTV. She is a 1996 P1 TS Lusso, I got her in Sept 06, with a blown bottom end and ready for the breakers yard, i sourced a donor engine from a 146Ti, and set about restoring her to her former glories, the rear suspension has been powerflexed, the exhaust is stainless straight through from the cat to the rear box, i have removed the insides from the standard rear box, she is not loud, just a little deeper in sound now. I have put in an autodelta air filter and have removed the trumpet. I have just changed the wheels as i did not like the phase 1 alloys. (levi, sorry i did not get back to you as i went on hols than straight into hospital for an op)

I am now torn into keeping her or getting a 3litre GTV, that is one hell of a hard decision for me.

Anyway, here she is

Re: My beloved GTV

nice and good work fixing her up.

I can see why it is a hard decision, that car will be pretty upset to be sold
