      Pssshhh...I still get emails from the VW dealer asking me to trade in my GTI. Ya know...the one I bought in 2007.

      They wanna hear from me!
      But they have a buyer ready to purchase it and they're willing to pay you TOP DOLLAR!

      These have really grown on me in the last few years, and the price is still obtainable.

      One section of the rally was super tight and technical, and the driver of this Alfa was really getting after it. I had to tell my Dad to pull over to let him by. When I talked with the owner later that night he was super excited to have had an Evora scoot over for him.

      Pretty.

      General question for the thread: which one would be more fun to mechanically restore: GTV2000 vs. GTV6?

      "Fun" defined as a good balance between part availability, cost, and ease of repairs.

      not sure what would be more fun, but there seems to be a few sites with NOS parts even

      I find the GTV6 more fun to drive, but if I was going to restore one, I would go with a GTV for the following reasons:
      • GTV's are much simpler cars to work on.
      • Parts are cheaper and generally more available.
      • The market is stronger for GTV's and you are more likely to get your money out of it when it comes time to sell.
