About “Gangsta Wagon”

This is my daily driver. It's a trooper. As of now it has over 214,000 miles on it and still going strong. Funny thing about this car is I used to have blue LED underglow on it as a joke.

About “"The BLUE B4U"”

This car is, pretty rare, from what I hear.

Not a big deal other than the B4U [Aero]Package (by ASC) and all the interior options... Basically, it's a "GTP" with the regular 3.1 V6 engine.
...But it does have ALL the 'goodies' that were NOT available on the "SE" though.

There were only 1,380 GP GT coupes produced in 1992 !

(and FYI, only 1,000 'Richard Petty Edition' Grand Prix's were produced in 1992. OF those 1,000... 144 of them were LIGHT METALLIC BLUE)

---So actually this BLUE '92 'GT' is probably almost as rare as a BLUE '92 'RPE' ; )
