On the eve of my trip to see the Indy Car race at Watkins Glen I had the good fortune of receiving the window sticker for the 1987 Trans Am GTA I purchased five years ago. The seller discovered it in some old papers and passed it along to me. It confirmed what I had thought- this car was a rare one in that the GTA package which normally comes with the 5.7 liter Corvette motor, does not have it. instead the car has the 5.0 liter V8. The window sticker shows a $300.00 credit on the price, so it is kind of an odd situation since it does have the upgraded instrument package.
I would gladly have had the Vette motor and the analog gauges but that's what it is. This was a nice find right in my neighborhood- actually across the street owned by an 87 year old, who just turned 92 in May. Not your grand ma's typical car! Best of all it only had 31,000 miles on it when I acquired it.
So to celebrate- here's some pics I took today in the local park. Another hot day in Florida where the sun usually shines. Stay tuned for my Indy Car pics coming up next!
See you at Watkins Glen!
