That is bad ass! Great job!

How cool to have a rare TTA hard top! A great car worthy of restoration cost!

Re: 2 year resto finally done!!

Wow.....not even my GTA was dissassembled that much. When we did this to mine, we did not remove the interior stuff or remove all of the finishes to complete metal.

So would you do that again? I would not do it to my GTA again. Too much work to me.

Love like you have never been hurt before.

That looks great. Practically a brand new car. I wish I had the time and money to have my car completely disassembled and redone like that. Awesome job!

Re: 2 year resto finally done!!

nice choice for a restoration!

the local small-town Pontiac dealer here had both a hardtop and a T-top TTA when i was shopping for my car in Jan '90. Probably could have got a good deal on it but i had recently bought my first home and it would have been my only car for a while anyway.

how many miles were on your car before you restored it? any surprises during the restoration? and what were the biggest challenges?
Vortech V-3 SC, ~7 psi max boost
0 - 60 in 5.40 Seconds
1/4 mile in 13.9 seconds @ 103 mph @ 5,000' elevation, 309 HP (per Escort GT-2 meter)
Shift kit, 9 clutch 3/4, Corvette servo
Magnaflow 16829 catback exhaust
TDS fr. sway bar bushings and end links. Wonderbar
