1988 GTA parts car I bought
 
1 Attachment(s)
Bought an '88 GTA 305 5 speed that wasn't running. I originally bought it for parts to swap my Iroc over to a manual. Gave $500 without a title and the guy delivered it on his rollback. He said the title would be another 200 if I wanted it. I told him it wasn't needed because I wanted it for parts. After getting it home and looking at the body I was reluctant to part it out. Body is in great shape just needs paint. I thought I would at least see if the engine ran before tearing the car apart so I dropped the tank to find a nasty concoction. Bought a new pump just to see if it would start after sitting all these years. Car started right up and sounded good with no noises and good oil pressure so I drove it around my neighborhood with 4 flat spotted tires. Lol Needless to say I spent another 200 for the title
I've replaced a lot of things that had been neglected over the years but it's a fun car.

Thanks guys. It doesn't have the RPO label in the console or the rear hatch. Kinda of a bummer. I bought seats out of a 4th gen to replace the factory ones. They are in dire need of a recover.
