Hey guys,

I’m new to this forum so thought I’d share the story with you all.

I’ve been looking for the perfect GT for a while now.

I came across my one with the cleanest Carfax title I have ever seen.

Never been registered, never had a first owner, never had warranty started and most of all, completely original with delivery mileage!

It hasn’t been started since 2007, so without wasting time, we got stuck into it to recommission the beast.

It is time that we get it started!

What a great video. tutorial, and sales pitch! If I were in the market, this video would really make me want one. Oh, wait a minute, I already have one.

Who helped him open the clam-shell?

How about that shop! Tell me it's his equivalent to Leno's garage and I'll just throw in the towel. Imagine how long it took to clean it.

Best barn find ever.

Thank you guys!

The next process has been huge.

We are currently prepping the car to get it fired up for the first time since 2007!

Congratulations, That's a find and exactly how mine was bought in July 2008. Does the car have warranty? Mine did with three year, thirty six thousands mile bumper to bumper. Also made me original owner. What state are you in?

Give it a major service and we tried starting it the first time however, the injectors were blocked.

congrats... and nice video. once you get her running, if you really want an angry monster, you might want to consider a pulley and tune it will do wonders for the performance of the car.

There is or was a white one here in Alaska with 2 miles on it. Guy bought it and parked it right away. It was still here last year I got a picture of it at the dealers getting the air bag update. Did it come from Alaska?

No it didn’t, but that’s awesome to hear!

Congrats and welcome!! That’s a great first video and a beautiful car!! I’d be interested to know how the fuel held up in it due to the age and any other long term storage woes.

Love your enthusiasm. I take it you are in NZ or Australia? Are they going to force you to convert it to right hand drive?

What part of the world did you find it?

Make sure you read all the threads on the improvements available, especially switching to Bridgestone tires.
