Decision Time-Which GTA to Drive This Year?
 
It's the time of year plates and insurance are due on the GTAs.

With that in mind, I think I'm only plating my 91 GTA. I haven't used it since 2002. Long story short, I did a ton of work to it in 2011, it runs like a champ and only has 40K original miles.

It needs some work though.

Heater core.
Windshield (My fault).
Tires.
Some paint work (my biggest concern-finding someone who can do it correctly).
Power Antenna.
No A/C. Yeah, I know, I'm a pussy but I have to have it. Black GTA in the summer is no fun when it's a 95+ degrees. Plus, wife said if we take it to TA Nats it has to have A/C. I agree.
And, it has a 'miss' that I've never been able to find.

Needs a full blown detail, which I love to do. It's never been done 'right' and I know it'll look killer when done.

It's has the SLP parts on it also. Runs well for what it is. I love the way this car sounds, it has the same SLP headers/exhaust the 92 Firehawks had. It's throaty yet not loud.

Any way, I'll try to post updates here. Along with pictures of the progress. Should be fun. My goal it to have it ready for TA Nats. Probably won't show it, but at least my man GTABill won't be the only 91 GTA there next year !

I'm going to try and make it there in my 92 GTA. I'm hoping to have the 17" reproduction wheels on it. The paint/body is just getting finished up and I still have to reinstall the entire interior.

Guilty, well sort of. I used to rock the mullet but that was my generation. According to some I still have a little back there but MUCH shorter than back in the day lol.

I am that generation as well but never had one. I graduated in 86 from HS with an 86 TA:D I had the baddest car at school. except maybe the mustang SVO which was a quick little stink.

I graduated in 90 and also had a car with "AM" but it had Grand in front of it. Not the baddest car by any means but definitely the cleanest. My sickness was around even then lol.

Now that's the spirit!

All the way from California! I'll never be able to use the excuse 'it's too far' again!

I hope I can have one of my 3rdgen toys together for the T/A Nats this year.
Need to have a 3rdgen party of somekind.

Yes, you need to bring one of your cars to Nationals. I'd love to see one and meet you in person.

We've been talking about TA NATS HERE

Not sure what I'm going to do with the 91 this year. I'd like to bring it but I may have been a little ambitious to have it done. With work, family, and little time in the shop, I'm not sure I want another project.
