Hi everyone

Hi everyone. I am new here and new to the gta world. At age 39 i was looking for a midlife crisis car at a inexpensive price. I knew i wanted an Camaro or Trans am. Then on craigslist i found an my 89 gta. Flame red with ttops,grey leather and 5.7! It is not perfect. Needs a headliner and front seats ripped. Hood needs paint and rear spoiler cracked. of course there are a few scrathes and dings. overall the body is solid. hardly any rust. The engine and tranny were rebuilt and car runs solid. They wanted $3200. It was about 50miles from my house. I got him down to $2200. I am so happy with the damn car. i always loved gtas. Thanks for reading. sorry a little long winded.

Re: Hi everyone

Your welcome. If you try to post photographs on this forum, you have to make them small in order to be accepted. But the best way to do it is to put them on something like photobucket and then do the img and /img thing.

Re: Hi everyone

Congrats, too funny I had my mid life at 48 .... well thats when my wife let me buy the Trans ! LOL. Mine fell off the trailer on its way to me ... long story.

All the stuff you mention is no big deal to fix, lots of interior parts out there, fiberglass spoilers, leather or cloth seat covers, carpet, headliners etc etc.

Having it run good is step one. Dont forget tires and brakes.

Carpet and seat covers is next for me. I want the leather seat covers w/GTA embroidered on head rest ...
