    happy 18th birthday GTE

    i was just flicking through the service history and stuff for my GTE when i noticed she was if fact delivered on the 13.02.1988, 18 yrs today!
    the car is still in fantastic condition and still pulls and drives very well.
    its only had two owners from new was always garaged and serviced by a vxl dealer.
    i bought it july 04 and it had covered just 67k. it now has 71k.
    it came with all mots and full service history, it just needed a dam good clean inside and a buff job on the paintwork.
    happy birthday old girl

    they are very quick!! 156bhp in a car that weighs less than a tonne although mine is an 8v, but 130 bhp per ton aint bad with serious amount of low down torque
