Back in a 3rd Gen. Bought an 89 GTA Convertible

5.7L, N10 dual cats, JG1 alumn. DS, and so much more!!

So nice to be back in a 3rd Gen!

Ordered and received new tires this week, washed and waxed - and she SHINES!!

Super clean car. And my favorite color combo, like my previous 89 GTA t-top car was...

Awesome!

Never saw a convertible in gun metal before. I've always loved that color.

Re: Back in a 3rd Gen. Bought an 89 GTA Convertible

Thanks - it's a really special car with some interesting options.

I posted the story in the 3rdGen COTM Thread, which the car has been nominated. Please take a look - thanks,

I appreciate that, and glad you enjoyed!

Just added more pics from tonight, at an empty parking garage. Cold, but nice setting. Thanks, again.

Re: Back in a 3rd Gen. Bought an 89 GTA Convertible

Great story - What a find!

I have a question - is red light under bumper something previous owner added or is it part of ASC option?

Thank you very much!!
Red light is a European fog lamp. Car was exported when new, and has been returned to the USA.

Sad to see it wasn't car of the month, sure is a sweet ride!

Lots of nice convertibles this month, look forward to it being nominated again.

Re: Back in a 3rd Gen. Bought an 89 GTA Convertible

Just means you'll win some other month!

I know of one member who was nominated more than once, and ultimately won. Had a nice GTA I saw in person and was happy to see it work out for him.
