I like a project but am I mad ?

Lo all , Ive been lurking around for a while and decided months ago that i wanted to try a GTV.

I like to try different modern classics and recently gave up 944's just through having had enough of them really. The GTV seemed an obvious choice as i need two little back seats for my enthusiastic boys aged 6 and 9.

Here's the thing , i always buy a little cheapie or project as my first one of any car so i can try out driving and living with one and then upgrade if I decide I like them. Sometimes they end up scrap ! but often with a little effort i uncover a gem.

Here's my first GTV don't laugh


So am I mad , will she be a total wrongen or will I have some fun and return a usable GTV to the community ?

Anyone in Herts/Essex or close by give me a shout

Looks like you have an interesting project on your hands. Afraid restoration is outside my area of competence, this is a polite way of saying I'm useless at mechanics, so good luck with the project. If 335 is what you paid, then not bad as some people spend more than this down the Pub/Indian restaurant on a Friday evening.
