1989 TTA

I have a 1989 TTA for sale in perfect shape with only 2,500 miles, still has the original tires that came on the car as well as all ID stickers. This car is a show winner and it has all paper work with the window sticker. Was once owned by ATR any mods done was from them with paper work to prove. I think only intake piping etc. was done,no other mods have been done to the car . Posting this for a friend that can tell you any and everything you want to know about the car. Can get more pics and will answer any questions you may have. He has come down on the price alot because of the econemy, so here is a chance to own a soon to be classic. $26,500

Re: 1989 TTA

If someone wants a stock unmolested car, that is exactly what they want.

They don't want one that has had mods done to it already...

Re: 1989 TTA

Oh. I thought it was referring to "# 787 of 1555 built". I couldn't understand why withholding that number would increase the value.

I'm a purist, also.

Re: 1989 TTA

If you publicly posted that TTA xxx had been modified and then returned to stock, that car would not bring as much money...

All I was saying.

Re: 1989 TTA

Oh! Ok, gottcha. I never could understand why someone would take a Picasso and modify it so it would be like a Rembrandt.

I remember when the TTA first came out, there was one at Detroit's Autorama custom car show. It had a roll bar welded in. Sad, unbelievebly sad, to a purist. The car didn't even have enough mileage on it to break it in and someone was romping it at the drag strip.

Re: 1989 TTA

There are many modifications needed to improve and sometimes make the car usable, or even restore it.

*Spoiler - they were crap from the factory
*Fuel pump - they need a walbro 340
*Paint - From the factory pretty much any 80s car was horrible
*Turbos wear out
*Charge pipes from the factory are horribly disgusting, the maf pipe looks like a vaccum cleaner attachment wrapped in electrical tape, and probably less effective
*Factory leather rips and wears out easy, much less quality than the Katskin reproduction ones
*Headliners sag with any 80s GM car with age
*chip - Turbo tweak is far superior and probably safer for the car than the original gm calibration

I'd much rather buy a car that has these things addressed already, because at some point, its going to need them anyway, why not save yourself the trouble and money?

If you want something to stare at that never sees the light of day, buy a die cast. Part of why these cars aren't known is because you never see them, if people would bring them out and increase public awareness perhaps even the value would increase for all of us. Cars don't become legends rotting sitting in mothballs, they do it on the street. Nearly every new car meet and show I've been to people ask about the car. 9/10 times they say wow I've never saw one of these in person. I look it like a public service educate the masses.

You and I like to drive them, others like to clean them. Personal preference.

To a purist, stock is stock. The awful factory paint is better than a $20k repaint. The stock intake is "cool". The Plastic looking leather is great...

Same reason dad sold the GNX he had. Never could bring himself to drive it. I think we put half of the miles the car had...all of 5xx when we sold it. The factory paint was god awful, the tires were rock hard, the battery was shit, but the guy who bought it thought he had won the lottery.

Like quick6 said before, you will never understand.
