1988 Pontiac Trans Am GTA (1988TAGTA)

Last updated Jun 25, 2011  

Photo of a 1988 Pontiac Trans Am GTA (1988TAGTA)


This is My 1988 Trans Am GTA 305 WS6 Auto with Black Leather Interior and TTops.
One faithful Morning I was on the way to work and found her on the side of the road with a for sale sign in her window. Called the boss and played sick, then went back to look at the car. Bought her the next day!
The Inside was Toast. Freddy Krueger on Acid could not have done what I found. Seats, Carpet, headliner, all shredded. All the Plastic pieces were either sun faded or cracked or missing.
The Car Had NOS on it and I’m Pretty sure that is what Killed the Tranny, It would not shift out of 2nd Gear, It Also had 2 Badly Bent Rims, And A couple of missing Center Caps.
Despite ALL of that I was in love with the Car and was not about to get Rid of it. Since then I’ve spent every last dollar I had putting her back together. Between EBay and friends I’ve been able to put her back to what she was before somebody trashed her.
The Old 305 Finally died so IVe gotten a 5.7 Crate Engine to put in it. It is period correct engine, date coded to 1988
