Sold my GMC Typhoon for a GTA!

Sure, the Typhoon was fast but temperamental and a pain in the butt to fix/tune. Not to mention ridiculously expensive and not exactly easy to find parts and accessories for.
Nevertheless, I sold it and bought a 1991 Trans am GTA. It's brilliant red (burgundy) with tan leather interior with around 60,000 original miles. It came out of the factory with a 350, aluminum drive shaft, and rear drum brakes. This is actually my second GTA. I thought I'd go back to the basics since my first GTA (87 w/305 & 5 speed, T-tops) was the most dependable and one of the most fun cars I've ever owned.
Anyway, thought I'd just share that with you and welcome myself back to the GTA world.
