    Hehehe


    I love the GTAs! My fave is the '92. I really liked the '91-'92 facia on the cars and from what I read that was the only year the 350ci was available with the T-tops.

    If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find him, maybe you can hire Uzzy.

    I can't wait for the pics. I have loved GTA's from the day they came out...especially in that dark red color they always seemed to be advertised in.

    You sure that's a 350? I thought the 305s were in the T-tops cars, even GTAs.

    Ya, needs some TLC, but not a bad car at all.

    Hello 87GTA, welcome to GMI. Sweet car.

    Is it just me or is your car missing a radio/tuner-CD player??

    IF It's A Chevrolet & RWD, Don't ride in it!!!

    ALL Chevy's NEED to be FWD/F-AWD!!!

    If it's a Toyota/Lexus/Scion, Don't ride in/drive it!!

    In '87 that would have been AM/FM and Casette Deck. Though he could upgrade to an aftermarket unit.

    Well, I guess you could assume that I figured he'd of had an aftermarket stereo in his beast. Though stock-wise, yes, it would have been a radio/cassette combo deal. lol....Ya want fries w/that?

    It wasn't until 1990 that T-tops weren't available with the 350. Nonetheless, with the location of the compressor and alternator, it appears to be a 305.

    If the 8th digit in the VIN is '8', then it's the L98 350. If it's 'F', then it's the LB9 305.
    Current: '15 GMC Acadia SLE|'08 G8 GT
    Former: '12 Malibu LTZ|'08 G6 GT|'07 TrailBlazer LS|'05 GTO|'02 Camaro SS|'01 Camaro Z28|'00 Camaro SS|'97 Tahoe LT|'91 Camaro Z28|'89 Camaro IROC-Z
    Past Digressions: '02 Cougar V6 Sport Ultimate|'94 Grand Cherokee Laredo|'93 Mustang GT
