General Chat / Thinking of getting a GT Turbo
« on: 21:58, Mon 19 November 2012 »
Well its been a long time since i owned a gt turbo! i only had mine for a few months before i sold it due to money issues. since then i have been driving all sorts of modern cars and found they just don't give me the same kick that the old skool stuff used too.

The GT turbo is one of these childhood dream car's of mine, i would love to get one again but im worried about reliability, I don't mind spending a couple of grand on the engine if i can build something reliabl.

Im completly out of touch with these cars now, would i be stupid to consider one of these as a daily car? 20k miles a year? like i say im willing to spend money to rebuild the engine if i can make it last and be reliable, i would want around 200hp aswell.

any advice guys?
