Re: WTB: Bright Red 1988 GTA

When my GTA was completed, I chose to keep off some of the emblems also. Because it is so easy to clean when there are no emblems. And also the ones that I have are brand new and I do not want them to start to get worn out or even stolen from my GTA if I decide sometime to stop somewhere to shop around. I do have the front emblem on right now only but not the other ones because it is not easy to take off the front one because it is connected with a body panel nut as all of you know about this one.

Re: WTB: Bright Red 1988 GTA

I wonder why not. Could be that they do not even know the answer, or that they do not want to lie if they know the real reasons. I only think it is interesting because the car should not need to be repainted since it has such low miles, but the other stuff is also a question and also they took so many detailed photographs of everything, but they did not take a photograph of the RPO sticker. Why?

How did you ask the question? Perhaps if you did it in a way where you sounded interested in buying it but wanted more clarification, they may have replied in some way. Can you post your question that you asked them here? I would be interested to read what you asked them and how you asked it.

But I think more that they did not answer your question only because they do not know the answers themselves.

Thanks for the heads up. Unfortunately it's overpriced and has aftermarket t-tops. I'm looking for a driver as I don't have indoor storage for it.

Hopefully something will pop up locally one day... One was listed on Craigslist recently that had everything but the t-tops. I also saw the notchback on ebay that had all of my requirements, but it was in New York.

Re: WTB: Bright Red 1988 GTA

There is one in my town that fits the description of the car you are looking for. I have seen it and it seems to be a really solid car, but I do not know the owner or anything about the car other then it is a red t-top car with black cloth and a auto Tranny. For some reason I can't get the pics to upload, I will try to post them on the facebook page.

Re: WTB: Bright Red 1988 GTA

Sorry, I guess the GTA I posted about is a 87. Otherwise it fits what you wanted.

Re: WTB: Bright Red 1988 GTA

Wow that is an amazing '89. Unfortunately I have nowhere to store such a pristine vehicle.

I am still looking for my elusive '88 GTA.

Dunno. Looks like he was still looking as of Sept. Only one way to find out; post and see if he replies. It's all good either way.

Don't really need luck, but thanks anyway. I'm happy to drive it for another 25 years. Like I said, it's all good either way.
