Since you are so desperate to find other1992 GTA owners, the cereal marshmelllows man has a purple one, you should contact him about registering in. You can get more information about that GTA on the on-line GTA sale section under "Delusional".

Re: 92 GTA Registry

The seller even says that the paint is not original, but yes, he could be saying that they repainted it in the same color. If someone really wanted to, they could repaint the engine compartment and the rest of the car. This car is twenty years old. A lot could have happened with it and the owner. I say this only because I personally know two people who have taken their cars and completely taken their car apart and painted it a completely different color and then reassembled it. One of the cars is a 1970 Cuda that it took him three different cars to make just one perfect one. The shell of the car that he used for the final car was white, but he painted it the Plume Crazy color and added the 440 six pack engine even though the car came with a six cylinder engine. This yellow GTA could have been a clone just like that. Since I know these guys who did this to cars, I determined that it is not that difficult if they are wanting specifically that type of car exclusively. They could have also put on GTA emblems on a yellow Pontiac. I will believe it if I see the RPO sticker. I wish that he would have taken a photograph of it and added it to the others on the ad and then we would know for sure.

$7,000 for it if it is an authentic 1992 GTA in that yellow paint would be completely worth it I think, dispite the overspray and damages, and the missing wheel well cover on the front passengers side. Restoring it completely to look new again would take a lot of money and time, but if it is what we are talking about it as being, I would say it would be worth the effort and resources.

Re: 92 GTA Registry

The last year for the GTAs was indeed a slow year with the change-over coming.

But you also have to remember that the '91s really got a year and a half on the market, so those numbers aren't really "accurate" either. It has been often rumored that the GTAs were built for dealer orders only, but I've never seen anything in Pontiac's internal documentation stating that.

I think the main reason the GTAs were light sellers for 1992 was mainly the price. A base price of nearly $26,000 i
was pretty heady for essentially a 12-year-old car in the early '90s... with a less than stellar quality reputation to boot. I know I talked to a dealer in Searcy when I first stopped in to see one of the '93 Firebirds. They were excited because they had gotten a Trans Am (dealers could not request certain models that year as new production ramped) and I remember the sticker price was $22,000 with everything but T-tops. The salesman looked at my car and told me that they had previously has a white '92 GTA that was over $26,000 on the sticker. They couldn't sell it and and ended up swapping it out for a GMC pickup.

And I guarantee that techincally $22K '93 was a whole lot better car than that $26K '92 was. I just think that Pontiac was just "playing out the string" with the GTAs that last year.
