GTC Pictures

Post by AllanI » Mon Apr 14, 2008 11:04 pm

I thought we might have a topic where pictures of members GTCs could be shown so I'll start off with one of mine. My GTC number 213 on a trip to France a couple of years ago.

OK, don't laugh at the stripes, they're there for a reason (covering up the cracked paint...).

This is a photo of my GTC on a run as part of the 2007 Welshpool Festival of Transport.

As the new owner doesn't appear to be on this forum, I thought I'd post some pics of my 2.9i 5 speed GTC - one of the few cars I've owned that I would have again AND Sarah would let me :D

Just had a look through my emails. Does your reg start A575 ?

I wouldn't have told you it was 335 with Galv Chassis, as the ealiest known galv is 372. If you're the guy I think you are, my email said your car is no. 375, an easy mistake.

You can check the chassis plate on the left hand side of the engine bay. The last three digits will give you the car's production number.

No problem at all, you had me doubting myself for a minute :D

I remember your car going through eBay, it was a bit of a bargain. You did very well buying that.

And here's my current GTC, now LHD courtesy of Geert in Holland. Chassis no. 120. Previously owned Jim's Olympic Blue one when she was just 4 years old and covered 98,000 miles in 4 years. The present one leads a much more cosseted life!

details elsewhere on the forum but photos to follow when it's a little more presentable.
