I think Frankie Rider had some wheels similar to those on his GTA?

Re: Update on the GTA

I thought about (when its time to) taking the C&C T-top roof off the Formula and putting it on the GTA. In my opinion C&C t-tops are a lot better made and have a better drain system. My GTA's t-top bar has seen better days and the formulas t-tops are PERFECT.



In the mean time I found what I want my GTA to sound like when the swap is done http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v2oaJ...ure=plpp_video

Re: Update on the GTA

Its been a longggg time! I honestly haven't done much to it but, I haven't lost interest! Obviously the more I dig in the worse it gets, so I'm basically going to strip it bare and have it sand blasted. I haven't decided on the engine completely. I have a 6.0 on the engine stand at a buddies shop and was thinking a twin turbo build or a nice blower... Heres what I'd like the final product to look like if it were twin turbo'd. (the engine not the car lol!)




Heres another nice setup with a blower, and believe me this car was super wicked!!!!
