In 2005 right after my 21st birthday I purchased a 1987 GT with approximately 60,000 miles. I was in college and didn't drive much, but over the next 4 years I put about 30,000 miles on it. Then I bought a 2004 GTO and haven't driven it since.
When I put it away the paint was starting to fade, there were a few small tears in the seats, and the transmission linkage is off (park is actually somewhere between park and neutral). It was kept at my dad's house about an hour north of the city - I haven't got anywhere to keep it right in the city.
So without time or cash it just sat waiting for me. Over this past weekend we replaced all the fluids, put in a new battery, and it started right up.
Now I'm looking into painting options and seat repairs. I Rusoleum rolled my motorcycle a few years ago and was extremely happy, but I wouldnt even know where to begin with a plastic and fiberglass car. I don't want to spend more than the car is worth on paint, just enough to get a uniform color that looks better than it does now.
Is there anything salvagable about that paint job? The first picture was taken right after washing it. The second two were this morning. A bird targeted it within the 15 minutes it was out
The interior looks very good minus the small seat tears. I also have a cracked radio bezel that I'll be looking to replace.
Are there any common "old age" issues I should investigate while I have the time?
Also, for anyone in PA, exactly what kind of plate do I want and exactly what do I need to get it? The DMV's website was predictably uesless.
