What Have I Got Myself Into ??!!!
Just bought a 1984 GTV 2.0 pretty much on a whim, because it's obviously a nice old bus with quite classy looks....it's red, as people tell me is pretty essential for Italian sports cars....and probably quite reasonable performance ? Having been an impulse purchase, am now wondering just what I might have let myself into....a Pandora's Box of both wonders and perils ?!
Don't know how it's going to feel sitting amidst several old ladas, a Skoda Estelle and a very pretty Porsche 924S, but could turn out to be much more practical than any of them ? This one has just on 70,000 miles with full history, and needs some cosmetic attention (I hope it's only that?) around tops of the front wings, and the valance. Are there any particular mechanical horrors pretty well guaranteed to surface on these at that age & mileage, and what's the best advice to help keep them away from the scrappers ?
