I have been after a standard mk1 GTE for sometime and finally purchased one off ebay, collecting it last Saturday.
I drove it 120 miles home and I had the biggest grin on my face. I had one of these cars as a young lad about 15 years ago. I still cant believe I took it to the scrap yard and parted with it for £35. Criminal!!!
The car doesn't get warm when on the open road so I gues the thermostat is either missing or stuck open. Also the Rev counter seems to read very high so I will get it recalibrated. Other than that it drives perfectly.
Anyway I now own a completly standard mk1 GTE in Silver with only 3 previous owners and 75k on the clock.
I plan to drive it a bit next year then next year will strip it down for a full restoration. I am going to keep her completely standard except I'm only to have her in White.
not sure why but somebody has got a bit too happy with the body filler and gone round the body kit! Dread to think what it hiding!
