Re: 1989 Pontiac Trans Am GTA

Yeah the car runs strong. It has maintained a completely factory stock feel/sound but just runs much stronger then it did OEM.

It's a great car. Never winter driven. ALL original parts available with car. Interior is mint(no rips anywhere)

I'm selling it because I don't get a chance to drive it anymore.

Re: 1989 Pontiac Trans Am GTA

Am I priced to high? What's fair value for these cars?

Re: 1989 Pontiac Trans Am GTA

A few things that might help...
1. Pictures...the ones on that site are okay, but if someone is buying a car on the internet, they want to see CLOSE pictures, mainly of any flaws, and interior shots.
2. What's the mileage on the car? People won't buy a car if they don't know what mileage is on it.

That said, it looks like a clean car...your price may be a *little* high, but without seeing pictures, there's not a true way to tell.

Re: 1989 Pontiac Trans Am GTA

I'll get more pictures and a video of the car done by the weekend.

Mileage is 106 000 KMs (60 000 miles).

Re: 1989 Pontiac Trans Am GTA

I agree. People want to see a lot more then a few photographs of it from far away. Also helps to show the engine, under the car, inside of the car and close up stuff like that.

Re: 1989 Pontiac Trans Am GTA

Never posted pictures because I have decided to keep her. In the end I couldn't come to terms with selling this GTA.

Re: 1989 Pontiac Trans Am GTA

Actually we all love to see other GTA's and what others have done to their cars. So, if you don't mind we would still love to see some pics. That is one reason we are all here.

Re: 1989 Pontiac Trans Am GTA

Good for you!!! I couldn't sell mine to just anyone (if I ever could!) because I don't want to think about what might get done to it.
