Hi my name is Haralampos (Hary) i am originaly from Cyprus currently living in UK, i have been offered a swap with my Mr2 turbo . So i decided to join the forum to meet the community .
A red mk2 6 speed gto import.
Since gto’s was my dads favourite car i really consider it but i also love the looKs and i do like GT cars.
I know it takes alot more care than my 2 as the engine is bullet proof. And the car is way less complocated.
The car i was offered was sitting for a year and there is no history of cambelt change or the 60k apart a milage number written on the belt cover…but no proof milage is 145000is miles.
The car reg is JJi1987 .
I have arranged a meeting this saturday for viewing…
Any tips are thank fully accepted.
Looking forward meeting you all.
Few things to note straight off , the cambelt will need doing if unsure/ no proof so factor that price in also that is the wrong battery on the car , terminals should be towards the engine , they have caused fires in the past shorting on the bonnet shield
I feel a bit scared driving it back . Should i change the terminals as soon as i get there or before driving?
I am in manchester area any specialist or mechanic that can provide the service? I was thinking the 60k service for the car.
