Talking Got Another GTA!!!!!!!

So, I was out cruising my GTA around and ran into an old friend last Thursday night that asked if i'd been down a particular nearby road in the last six months or so I said no and he said you gotta check out this GTA black on black that's been sitting out there all winter. So me and my wife went over and checked it out turns out the cars been sitting since 03' and it was a father son project that never got started .We contacted the seller's father and by sunday 6/22 it was ours heres a short clip of loading it up on tow truck i'll upload some pics later.

Surprisingly it's all there drive train is orginal has a 9 bolt drum rear with aluminum drums the interior is sun faded and cloth on seats is very dry. But the nice thing about that is included in sale was a gm weather strip kit and also a gm seat cover kit to re do the seats. It's just so cool to have a black on black GTA or for that matter a black GTA.

Thanks!!!
I'm planning on restoring back to original maybe with some tasteful mods.
And keeping her clean probably can't be any worse then keeping my white GTA clean

Nice find! Looks pretty good overall, I bet it was pretty nice before it sat 11 years.

Re: Got Another GTA!!!!!!!

Wow, more than one GTA? That is impressive. One of them is enough for me, sometimes too much for me.

My GTA sometimes makes my head hurt. Two of them would be twice of a trouble.
