Just bought a GTA.

Always loved these cars. I saw a GTA notchback for sale on craigslist, decided it was time. Its in decent shape, motor runs strong, interior is your basic poorly maintained 25 yr old car. It is a Gray notchback, with sunroof, digital dash. Right now i am pulling the interior out and im going to redo the seats and carpet.

Re: Just bought a GTA.

Well he has sold this Trans Am to me so I am now taking over this post =)

The car has a few issues that have popped up, it is leaking oil in to one of the cylinders and from somewhere else on the block. I am going to be taking the engine out and rebuilding it next month. It is currently all stock and I am wanting to upgrade it. Any (cheap) suggestions on how I can upgrade the engine itself?

Re: Just bought a GTA.

At least it stayed in the family. Now you just have to make sure that you constantly remind your brother's wife knows how much of a mistake it was for him to sell it to you.

Re: Just bought a GTA.

Good one, Bill....and yes, Gunmetal is one of the rarer Notchback colors. Usually see Red, Black, or White the most often...

So....where's the requisite photo????
