My TTA (Firebird Trans AM GTA) is car # 373 with 50,221 miles. I am the second owner and I have had the car for over 6 years (bought it Sep. 2002). The car was originally from Florida and doesn't not have any license plate screws in the front bumper or any rust anywhere.

The rear spoiler is not cracked and the car has a stock turbo tweak chip, which makes it run and idle very smoothly, and a K&N air filter (I have the stock air filter housing). It basically a brand new 20 year car. The rear main seal just started to leak (this seems to be common with these V6 turbos).

Itís free of any accidents, rebuilds, paint work or interior work (no stains or rips). Itís all original. Original engine, transmission, exhaust and catalytic converter. A/C, heat, horn, lights, blinkers.. .all work. Its still has the original Lexan T-Tops (not glass). I have the Indy 500 door/windshield sticker and ownerís manual. And I have PHS documentation and a letter to shown its a TTA and car # 373. I have a clean/clear AutoCheck report dated 2007. I have clean/clear NYS title in my name.

I am 36 years old and never beat on the car and I bought it from an older Florida man in his 60's. I don't even get on the turbos much because I actually like the way the V6 drives and runs alone. The handling is tight and steering is smooth. But itís nice to know that you have all the power in the world to take off like no other car that I have ever driven and this is stock. I can only think of what a total moded car could do but thatís not my style.

You can call me at 516-851-6276 to talk about the car anytime. I love the car but with 2 kids (4 and a 1 year old) and a wife that hates all my toys itís just not in the cards to keep it right now. I would rather see someone else use and enjoy the car like it should be.

The car is located in Farmingville NY 11738 at my momsí house in her garage for the winter. $15K FIRM.

I love those 80s cars when they put as many buttons as possible in the steeringwheel. How much power does that car produce.  It looks really sharp i can tell you took care of it.

While these motors were rated at 250 flywheel horsepower to appease the Corvette crowd, in actuality, the TTA motor reportedly made 301 hp on the PAS engine dyno. Torque was also reportedly rated at 355. Turbo T/As have been known to run the quarter in as fast as 13.4 seconds bone stock. And 0-60 in low 5's. 1 of 1,324 with leather and T-tops.
