High mileage GTV's are quite affordable right now. Flip side is that the low mileage/mint condition bunch are becoming rare on the classifieds. Looks like current onwers are playing 'keepies' with them.
Then when one does come up, it is snapped straight away (poor auld Orish buyer is slightly disadvantaged as the best ones are in the UK).
As for colour.... plenty of Vela blue, and silver out there. Very few reds.
As cheap as they would be to buy, it is expensive to keep them as a second car. Even with taxing for 6 months you still have the insurance daylight robb-EDIT.... crowd. As for taxing usage by applying the tax to petrol..... they have!!
... double hit for the car enthusiast.
Then having a 10yr old sitting up for 6 months. Irish weather and the out doors. If you have indoor cover happy days.
I just can shake the hankering for another GTV. Buy running/maintaining a second car right now just ain't going to happen. And if it does, it means the 'other' car will have to be a 10yr old small engined shed, and maybe even that dirty word may have to be considered......Diesel..
Like you murphye.... maybe in a year...or two....
