Amazing!

1 week ago I bought a ratty but fairly straight XY GT copy that has 1/2 been restored (engine and supension done). I have been amazed at the reaction I have been getting driving this thing around. I have already had 5 people offer to buy it and it turn heads everywhere. I drove it this arvo and finally got to give it a bootful.
I'm so gone on this thing now......I love it! But I am trying to decide whether to do it up like an original GT or go the "GT exterior/new interior" version. What do you think????

Re: Amazing!

First you have to take some pics and show us.

If its already on the way to being a GT i would stick with keeping it looking original.

Re: Amazing!

How much money do you have,if you have a lot to spend go for the original GT trim and exterior,this will be worth more in the future and also sought after more,but the down side to doing the original way is part's are becoming harder to find therefore the dollar's hit you harder,but there's noithing better than an original (look a like) GT,I dont like the retro look on the XY's,that's just me though.

then there is the exterior, paint, motor, hmmm... we got A LONG WAY! its gonna be in either silver, or true bule whats better?

Re: Amazing!

$400 for the dash and console and wheel sounds cheap enough.

Why dont you do it up as a Fairmont which it probably was in the first place? Similar trim level etc and you dont have to have people saying "oh it not a real one"
