Default new pics of my T/A

so i decided to snap a few new pics since i havent taken any with the tops off since i got those new center caps installed last fall. i also got my antenna fixed last weekend so it now goes all the way down

I also bought a cupholder insert for the console since i never had one.














I didn't take any of the engine bay but here's a pic from early 09. it pretty much looks the same.

thanks guys

yeah ovechkin I try LT1's get a bad rap for some reason but honestly i think a black LT1 WS6 is the best looking of the 4th gens. Thats why i added ram air to mine a few years ago. I couldn't afford an extra $4k for a 96-97 WS6 back in 04. I did the conversion and changed my wheels for about half that, lol.

I'm only 750 mi or so away from turning over 130k

Then again, it's kind of fun when people ask me how many miles it has and then i tell them and also tell them that the car is only ~ 35-40% non factory paint (hood, headlight doors, bumpers, gfx and B pillar are all newer paint, rest is factory)

95,

I used to have a white 95 LT1 T/A...hardtop. Loved it to death, but had to sell it because I was PCSing and couldn't take both the SS and the LT1. Yours is a prime example of why I wish I could of found a way to keep it....

And P.S....I never give LT1's a bad rap, especially LT1 birds because their styling is timeless and their performance is more than respectable.

cool. i like the red interior. my last car, a 93 tbird supercoupe was a really rare red w/ red interior. Is that hood on your car a suncoast? it looks a little different than the oem one i have. I saw a guy with a suncoast the other night on a 95 formula and i was curious to see how much those setups go for. he said he had around $1k in the hood and airbox and i believe that was without paint. i told him how much i paid, lol. I got my hood and airbox and all the peices seperately for around $550 and it cost me $730 for paint including the hood, headlights, and the b-pillar. So basically i have ~ $1k in my conversion and the hood and airbox are oem.

Good eye 95'; it was a suncoast hood. I'm not too sure of the purchase price as it was a while ago, but I believe the airbox/hood/materials came out to close to 800. I painted it myself. It never fit too great though; although it was close enough to the undiscerning eye. The red interior was awesome, it always got compliments. Everyone asked where I got the red from and I'd tell them, uh....the factory! And when I sold it 3 years ago, it only had 45000 miles on it; truly a cream puff. I miss her dearly! And once again, your T/A is outstanding man, it's definitely a keeper.

Found this while wasting time on craigslist. If it's legit, then someone needs to go get it.

Pretty sure that's a scam. i seem to recall seeing the same car for sale for a similar price a few months ago and someone called the guy and he wanted them to send him a certified check for the amount and then he'd tell them where to get the car, or some shady thing like that.

seemed too good to be true, but I figured it was worth posting for the pictures at least.
