Looking for first GTO/3000GT

Hi everyone,

I’m looking to join the club proper and buy my first GTO :smiley: , any recommended sources besides Ebay/Autotrader?

Ideally I’m after a mk 1 or 2 as close to spec as reasonably possible.

Cheers!

Hi Adam,

Welcome to the club :+1:

First thing is to take a look at the buyer guide that is on the forum and print it out and have it with you when you go to view a car. Then go too look at a few cars and take your time do not get rushed or pressured into buying one.

Look at places such as Facebook as well and ask members on here what they think of a potential car as it’s likely it has been owned by a member or being sold by a member.

Good luck in your search and feel free to ask questions.

Hi Adam
Welcome to the club and good luck in your quest.

Twinturbo is the way to go, defo read the buyers guide

Find out about the belt service. Check the oil pressure guage works

NA is more reasonable on price and less issues to arrise

Hi Adam

Welcome to GTOUK , guys pretty much have it covered in the advice above only thing I would say personally is avoid Motorhub in Keighly and also Top autos on eBay as things are not always as they seem

Welcome mate, you can pick them up for about 4 grand. Don’t be paying 6-10 grand for one, unless it’s mint.

Thanks for the advice folks, much appreciated!

Particularly interesting to hear the caution against Motorhub & Top Autos, I was aware the former had a pretty shady reputation, but something about the latter didn’t seem right…and besides Camden doesn’t seem the best place to test drive one!
