Re: WRECKED '89 TTA

Reminds me of the time I went to the junkyard for a thirdgen and found out it was completely torched. Steering wheel was just the metal ring, seats down to the frames. Only thing salvageable on the thing was a couple of exhaust shield bolts I was missing. That's why I like the sites that show a picture of the car. Shouldn't of even put that thing out on the lot.

The bent steering wheel and the broken windshield are bad indicators as well.

Re: WRECKED '89 TTA

I'm pretty sure the owner of that white camaro with blue stripes is a member here. If I recall correctly he went under a tractor trailer's trailer and walked away without any serious injuries
