Top 10 reasons for Jim to get a group S GTV

1. He can change car colour
2. Diffs are in plentiful supply
3. He could use a project to fill in his day
4. Its more aerodynamic on the back of the trailer
5. He doesn't have Neil Choi's Guilietta to look good against anymore
6. The coupe style will help him look younger
7. ......
8. .....
9. ......
10. The guiletta's only 1 diff away from retiring anyway.

Top 10 reasons for Jim not to get a group S GTV...

1.  Everybody is doing it
2.  GTV's are so "80's"
3.  I now have the 155 Q4 to fill in my day.
4.  I have just bought a new can of 'custard' paint
5.  I have found an ongoing supply of diffs
6.  I am actually getting younger anyway.
7.  Aerodynamics is the poor sister of weight reduction
8.  I am quite worried that Neil would beat me.
9.  Its just so damn enjoyable beating doherty
10. Scott is paying me not to get one!

Retort to Jim's retort...

1. Everybody is not doing it...I'm lonely.
2. If GTV's are so '80's' then clearly they were ahead of their time.
3. 155 Q4 can fill in Monday's & Tuesday's, rest of the week Group S.
4. Custard paint is obviously available then, so buy another can.
5. Welding up broken bits of a diff doesn't count as "ongoing supply of diffs".
6. Aren't we all?
7. I cannot argue with that line, its a ripper.
8. Neil is too busy anyway.
9. It's only a matter of time before Doherty is in Group S anyway, we are wearing him down.
10. Use Scott's funds on the 155 and claim "oh I thought thats where you wanted the money to go, a DTM replica" (which we all know it will eventually become anyway)

Don't put off the inevitable Jim ;D
