Re: We all like a good homecoming story right??

Well interesting. I wonder how that guy knew the name of the previous owner, two owners before. During all of the years that I have owned my GTA, it has always attracted a lot of attention from people, except during the years of 1994 through 1998. But that is probably because it did not look so nice during those years. And why 10,000 for insurance for three years? I would not be full converage since the car was so used when you got it. Did you have a very bad driving record or something?

The car was originally owned by him. I have a feeling the insurance was so high because he might have had some run in's with the police? So 10,000 for insurance. So he definitely had a pull me over red car. LOL!
