GTA is back on the road after long Canadian Winter!!

got my car back out today, and I bought this on ebay

http://www.ebay.ca/itm/160478085198?...#ht_1090wt_952

replacement for the throttle body plate that says "tuned port injection" I think it will look very sharp.

I have the black one on the GTA now too!

What color did you get? I wish they did a gold one or could do more colors.

Other than that new plate for the engine in your car, how is it running now that you are driving it again after a while?

I have been driving it since Wednesday, and everything seems fine. It was stored in a heated Garage with a full tank of gas. it's all good, going on a cruise tomorrow for Charity, hopefully some cool pictures and videos will turn up from that.

Re: GTA is back on the road after long Canadian Winter!!

That is nice. I have a 80 year old friend who lives in Gibsons. Every time I go there to visit her and I take the ship to Gibsons, I always think how nice it could be if I took my GTA there. It is very beautiful there, especially when there is snow on the mountains.
