10 days on and another 7000 views... as a knock on, Alpines for sale thread is also getting a lot of hits maybe from curious prospective new A110 customers, so, if you are or thinking of selling, it may well be a better selling forum now than it ever has been. You never know, a prospective new A110 buyer might be tempted by a GTA as a stop gap.

Shhh .. GTAs are the best kept secret in classic cars in the UK....we don't want all this new interest in the brand to hike prices.

If i had to choose between GTA and TR......bearing in mind the TR is insured for a silly £120K.........I would take a GTA.
Best car any day.
Will be working on GTA this weekend, as TR broke down yesterday. thankfully, only looks like a water hose has burst, but lots of steam was dramatic.

I think Simons TR is a very different kettle of fish.
