Re: New article GTA Assault LS Swapped

Thanks for posting this. At first I thought this car may have been featured recently on CAR FIX on the Velocity channel. But, that car was not a T-top. It was a red '88 GTA that needed some tweaking of bolt-on parts that did not get along. It was interesting because it was a GTA with an LS swap and it looked super clean. I would like to know more about it, but it was a typical 22 minute show with about 12-15 minutes devoted to the actual car.

I had to leave just as that episode of Car Fix was starting. Waiting to catch a re-run.

I watched it all....VERY basic & not anything ground breaking. In fact you really didn't miss anything

Pretty nice car. I'd really like to have that Mecham rear wing.

Very nice, YearOne rims. Looks like the cast rims, not the billet.
