Thanks for the comments guys. Yes, it was never about making money, more an effort to save an unsung car that had great potential.
Whatever happens to it now its future should be assured.
I agree Frank, it's not like I need the GTie for my fix of a country lane blast, so it may well stay and the GTie get sold. But equally I may do that one up too as it's at that point where the wrong owner could easily get put off by a few upcoming jobs and actually scrap it!  Cry
There's a strong chance it may get the same treatment as the LX so it too an be assured a decent future.

Interestingly too that this morning the Y10 went for the MoT and this afternoon I took the integrale. Guess which one felt most fun?
At 55 to 60 mph in the Y10 it feels like you're getting every last inch of performance from it, especially in the twisty stuff, great fun. The integrale on the same trip feels so assured that it is actually less involving, if that makes sense? To be feeling like you're getting anywhere near its performance level you have to travel at licence worrying speeds.

Best cars I've ever had for having fun were the 3 Fiat 500's I had back in the early 1980's and 1990's, didn't go very fast, but boy was it fun getting there, real roller skates., and a very close 2nd was the citroen 2cv6 and the Dyane,.
Although both were before I got into Lancias!

James Hunt who had a 6.9 litre Merc and an Austin A35 van said something like you can have just as much fun in the A35 it's just that if you over do it in the A35 you aren't going fast enough to do much harm.
