Re: I got the Coupe GT! (&adios 5kt...)

No need to explain to me.  I bought my CGT in 11-91.  I've owned 4 other
cars since then and always enjoy getting back in the cgt for a drive. 
And I've spent a fraction on upkeep for it as compared to the 3 q's. 
I've recently started referring to it as Cinderella.
