I bought my 20VT in 2012 for a pittance (£1300) when I was approaching 60. The lacquer's now gone on the roof, the dash and centre console have gone all sticky, and he's suffered some dings and scrapes, but will be getting "seen to" by Joe sometime in the New Year. Perhaps being transformed into the VT6 guise of my spares car. The engine's still strong, as evidenced during a trip to and around the NuerburgRing, plus cruising back at an indicated 130mph, with some in hand. Can't wait for him to be back on the road!

Off course for a moment, when I purchased my Coop four grand really was a bargain as it was in really good condition, the chap took off a few quid for crap cheap front tyres, that was all I could see.

The lack of Coop friendly garages up here & learning about the car as I went on, the Coop did suffer a bit over the years. driving


I'm an old git & happy with it,most of the time

I got mine in August, although I don't drive it all that much it makes me smile when I do.

Bought mine back in 2007 at the ripe old age of 21. 13 years with the same car! It beats being married to be honest.

Bought mine brand new (as a company car?!) in 2000 aged 44. It’s no longer my company car but I still have it and love it dearly- needs another campaign of large money spending soon though!

Bought mine brand new (also as a "company" car) in 1997 aged 35. It’s no longer my company car either but I still have it - sort of ...

It is in the process of having all the rust cut out and resprayed - mainly done and then will basically get new suspension and belts done. So yes, a very large amount of money being spent on it as these things are expensive out here.

It has become my son's 21st birthday present with the understanding that he has to cherish it from now on smile

Why do I think this is not going to end well ...

You're such a youngster, Freddie laugh

Ordered mine in July 95 - so it'll be the right age for the 25th anniversary - but I didn't get it delivered until October.

Bought my 20V Turbo in Dec and its less than half my age - soft spot for the younger babes! Would have had it much earlier if I had any spare cash but was busy paying off the mortgage!
