New member, returning 3rd gen owner

Hey guys. New member here in the FT Lauderdale area.

I'm 43, married, have some toys like a boat , RV and now added a 1987 Trans Am GTA. I had one identical to this when I was 19 and of the 30 or so cars I have owned it's the one I wish I never sold.

So today I bought this one. 1987, brand new AC, brand new seats, brand new period correct tires. Runs strong as hell. Paint is ok, actually good for a 30 year old car. Needs some exhaust work.

Nice looking bird! Miss my '88 GTA sometimes, but I really wanted a manual car.

Yeah the only thing I wish it had was a stick. Mine from way back was a stick but that meant it had the 5.0 and not the 5.7. I may eventually do the conversion to a 5 speed manual.

It's home. Super happy with it. Can't wait to get into working on it and getting it right where I want it.
