Welcome to the forum. I to prefer the stripe delete and no stripe cars. Took me 6 months to find my car. The search engine on this website is your friend. Learn all you can before buying a GT. Most important to have a PPI done on the car before purchase. I like the older iron cars you currently own. Good luck on your search.
Thanks Partsaman for your response. I agree with you about a PPI.. But in Peculiar Mo finding someone good to do a PPI will be a challenge.
Thanks for your help.
Most of the FGT experts will travel to do your PPI.
Funny, being a car nut for 40+ years, I only became aware of Montreal's a few years back. Love the design, so many Miura styling ques. I too like your collection..
Any advice about what I should expect using the car to drive to work an hour each way from home and in traffic sometimes?
Just like Antigavity I'm also new here. I have been fantasizing over these cars for years now. Just been busy with other older cars restoring etc. Now I feel the sky is clear and its time.
I live in crazy Venice Beach California and work in the music industry in Hollywood.
I really like the Stripe-Delete cars the best for some reason. Also stock is preferred with any and all of the options but the stripes and side stripes. I wouldn't mind not having the sub-woofer though, that little bit of storage would be nice..I'm not a by car stereo guy either since I have to listen to music 10 hours a day at work.
I found a nice black one being sold by a broker named Desneux Motorsports out in Peculiar Mo. if anyone has info on them? The car only has 2400 miles but I wold prefer one with higher miles since I plan to use it.
Any advice about what I should expect using the car to drive to work an hour each way from home and in traffic sometimes? Also have a home in the desert outside of Los Angeles about 2.5 hours away that would like to use.
Thanks for all your great advice.
Looking forward to many years of knowing all of you..
Dave is spot on on the mileage thing.You are better off getting a car that has been driven and cared for.The garage queens will need belts ,hoses, all fluids ,AC recharge,A battery, and tires!Especially tires!The best advice I can give to potential buyers is not to get hung up on mileage. These cars are now 15years old, so a low mileage car has essentially been sitting in a garage, and this is not good for them. These cars are basically bulletproof so if you see one you like with ”high” mileage go for it, as in reality the mileage won’t be high for such an old car. I’ve got 50k miles on mine with zero problems. That equates to about 3500 miles per year - not a lot is it?
Welcome.....Mr JJ is well known and respected on F-Chat....good addition here. with patience, higher mile cars do come up.....I even know of a black stripe delete car with a couple of stories that could be bought cheaply I think with the proper due diligence. The two experts that I have spoken with and will travel are Rich Brooks and Kendall Pond, both are highly qualified.
And I too own a Gandini designed Italian supercar......
I’ll bite. Which model?
And a yellow GT just came up for sale
