Hi All,

I am looking for a relatively clean GTV6 to fix up/restore. Basically, in decent running condition but I am okay with some cosmetic problems. Light rust and bubbling doesn't scare me, nor does semi-rough interior condition, issues with trim, etc. - I'm looking for a car that is 75-80% but just needs some love. I could buy a very clean example, but I don't see the fun it that - I would rather have something I can enjoy bringing to life, and I understand the work it will entail.

If any of you have the project car that's been sitting in the garage in running condition, and you just haven't had the time for the paint / upholstery / random rusty spot, that's the car for me. I'm looking for the one that is pretty from twenty feet away, but when you get close you see the blemishes. I am also realistic for what a car in that condition costs - I'm not trying to find something for a ridiculous low price, more like the neighborhood of $5,000-8,000 depending on condition. Mostly, I am expecting to pay what I have seen for similarly rough but mechanically sound cars have been selling on BaT and eBay, but I can be flexible too.

Model year isn't super important; if I could find a red 1986 example with tan leather interior (again, even in chewed up shape) I would be in heaven, but I am all ears for anything out there. I live in Ohio but I can drive a reasonable distance or pay for shipping.

I have really grown to love this car, and I can't wait to have my own and join this amazing community.

Thanks for the help!
