How does the rise in prices of Gtir's stop people maintaining them?
General servicing, oil changes, mot's, oil filters, brake pads, etc... Prices of these are still cheap as ever.
The Cossie owners are no different to us.
Get the prices of these cars sky high I say.
I spent good money on my RB Autech, and I would love the value to double.
The people buying these cars now are more mature, and will have the money and care to look after them.
Weather you see it as an investment or a car to drive and enjoy it doesn't matter, as long as the prices go up.
I'm sure if these cars are over £20k in 5 years time you will all not be complaining, so why complain now?
It's the effort we put in now that will help the future of these rare racers.
I have been in touch with a lot of people via Facebook looking for these cars. They are ensible guys, mature, have a good command of English, have decent money they want to spend on cars which they think are great, and future icons.
Been speaking with another guy who has just imported one from Japan for over £15k.
You are going on about prices to high, when you buy a £3000 Gtir before in the old days, you would spend over £10k over the years in modifying.
Now spend high on a good example and just use and maintain, or garage and cherish.
Works out the same.
Let's not kill the re resurrection of the Gtir again...
