My wife's aunt purchased new a 1974 2000 GT Veloce and it has been in my wife's family for its entire life. My wife and I used it when we were first married in 1984 for a couple of years. It then went to her sister and they used it for a handful of years and then it has sat. During this time it has deteriorated to the point that major work now needs to be done. I got it back two years ago and this past summer we started bringing it back to life. The clutch failed because it got oil on it from all of the engine oil leaks and the relatives kept driving it until it stopped. So the engine is out of the car getting overhauled. Hopefully it will be back on the road next summer.
