GTV 2.0

New GTV Owner

Hi All

Thought I would introduce myself before reading through the resources :-)

I'm Ben and I'm 20. I have just brought a GTV albeit with a blown engine (bottom end shot).

Having always liked the look of the GTV, one caught my eye in a nearby village, It looked in a sorry state and appeared to degrade more and more every time I saw it. It then appeared on Ebay, but didnt sell. To cut a long story short, I gave the guy a knock and made an offer of 200 quid, Sold to me.

It has 94k at present. Its the lusso model, black leather(no rips of tears), black body (few scratches), which was perfect, exactly what I wanted.

Today I've been to purchase an engine, again for the bargain price of 80, so will be swapping it over very shortly.

Attached are a few pics from todays tart up session. I'm hoping to get a leather restoring kit shortly also.
