Over a 5 year period, a GT4 will typically cost more to run than a 348. But both are not crazy money pits.

you have to be kidding. if both cars are in the same condition a GT4 won't cost NEAR what a 348 would.

I love my car. Buy your own

Yeah, the wife needs four seats, but I just can't come at a 308 GT4, especially coz 'whatsisname' raves about his so much.

i wouldn't want her owning one anyway....it'd devalue them.

#sigh#

whatever.

I know that this 348 would have cost a lot less than YOUR GT4 to run, if they had been bought at the same time, in similar condition.

But they are not truly comparable, and of course there are always extremes and exceptions.

sure.

So... how long have you owned your GT4.. and what have you spent on it over and above purchase price? You've rebuilt the engine for a start, (and all the while you're in there items) you've changed the ignition system, + tyres, servicing, repairs, etc etc....You've also sunk many hours of your own time into it to tune it and fiddle with it. What is your average yearly spend.... ??

I KNOW that it would compare unfavourably to the average 348 owners spend per year.

There won't be a huge difference worldwide, but overall, the 70's car will cost more to run than the 90's car.

Lets ask PAP how much his car costs per yer and compare shall we?

edit...

oh, and you bought a GOOD GT/4!

could you TALK any more crap?

so...why are you pushing THIS car, then?

does he owe you money or is he paying you commission?

we're talking running costs, right? if i paid 20k for that 348 and rebuilt the engine, would that make it more expensive to run than a GT4?? how ridiculous.

like i said, with equal condition, a 348 will cost heaps more than a carby 308 to run. engine out belt changes. Water pump replacements to make sure it doesn't seize and break the cam belts,  4 valves heads that need adjusting every 25000km, switches that break, electronics that stop working....etc etc etc....you're a joke!!!

even a 355 is cheaper to run than a 348...at least they have hydraulic lifters!

*shakes head*

I hope no one ever listens to ff or takes his advice.

i asked pap about the costs

he's done 6000km in 3 years of ownership. he's been too lazy to do the  belt change, which is overdue, he does ALL the work himself and he's STILL spend $6k just in running costs (not ownership costs)

you could triple that amount if he paid a mechanic to do it, and then double it again if he paid someone to do the engine out service including all the things you 'end up doing' while the engine's out. it's done 40000km, probably needs a valve adjustment too.

in the last 12 months, my GT4 has cost me $300 and i've done 10,000km

i'm glad you brought it up!
