Garrards are mythical tt's, and there are a number of restoration specialists who do a wonderful job of repairing or totally pimping the turntables and making them sound much better than modern TT's. Google Garrard restoration and you'll find plenty. There is even a couple of forums dedicated to these, to the Lenco and to the Thorens brands. You'll be hypnotized by these discussions, believe me.
