1987 gta vs 1992 trans am vert???

So few months back I found a 92 trans am vert for sale the car does need some work but less then the gta I recently picked up the work doesn't scare me but the uniqueness of the 92 vert interests me the vert is still for sale but in order to purchase it my gta must go.My question is do I continue plain on the GTA or go after the vert?

I'd go for the 92 TA convertible. Stiffen it up a little, maybe a 350 or 383 and you got a blast to drive with the top down.

Wish you weren't in NJ, I've got a nice 355 with AFR heads, full roller, Super Ram and some other toys sitting on an engine stand. I was going to put it in my red GTA but decided not too. It'd make that convertible move right along!

Make sure the ground effects (sides, front, and rear) are in good shape if you go with the 92. They are hard to come by in any kind of decent shape.

Well, for me it is a little bias towards the 91-92 style lol. Otherwise its the uniqueness of the 91-92 that will draw looks just because there just aren't that many.

Yep i'm kinda drawn to it for the uniqueness factor and like you said the fact that there just isn't that many around.I'm still waiting on the seller for a response.

I've never understood that-sellers who don't respond. At least they could say no and open the offer up...

Just happened to me recently with my other hobby. I was the buyer, looked forever for the item, found a seller, we agreed to price and that was the last I heard from him. No reply to phone calls, e-mails or texts. Thankfully, no payment was sent. P*** on him, I'd rather give my money to someone who wants it.

It's the only bad deal I've had with a seller. All the other sellers have been awesome.

Have fun with your GTA this spring.
