    Maybe I should raise the limit to 1000 posts then! :lol:

    It was actually to prevent people abusing the system - most people that want to spam can't be bothered to make 10 posts.

    yeah they are both third gens the TA is just a standard black 5.0v8 with T tops (aka KITT) but with a 5 speed manual
    the camaro is a Z28 hard top that had a 5.0v8 HO lump and a 5 speed manual but i bought it without the engine and box as a project and i have since found the original box but the engine was scraped about 3 weeks before i found them

    the TA used to get used till the clutch went and i decided that it needed loads of work to pass the MOT and it hasn't been used for about 3 years now and in desperate need of lots of work

    the camaro is currently a bodyshell up on big stands while i do some rust removal and i have a 5.7 block sat inthe garage waiting for me to finish the other project so i can put some money into it

    the other project is a 3.5v8 mk1 mondeo with 4 wheel drive which is about 75% done before it goes for its SVA (or BIVA if its not finished in time)

    nice videos! It seems camaros and mustangs are a dime a dozen over here but you dont see many of the older model TA like yours here any more. Nice work!

    there are not to many 2nd gens and very few 1st gens i am one of the high ones on the pontiac club and most of us on there have 3rd or 4th gens

    so its good for 2nd gen prices as well
    but there are not to many in the states most of them are 3rd gens but good old ebay.com sorts all my bits out

    Hey everyone, i'm new to the forum and i'm not quite sure if it's consiterd a muscle car or not. i guess the GM, Gbody cars get mixed feelings as to what they are consiterd. i'm quite pleased with the wealth of info that's on here. i have an 85' Buick Regal with the Original 3.8L that im doing as project car. im hoping to find something on this forum about custom turbo charger installs. ive tried alot of the GN/GNX forums and you wouldnt believe the Negitive feedback that i would get..but people on here seem to be alot more helpfull and supportive of others as i have read a few other threads on here.

    Hello and welcome, nice to meet you.

    We are a very friendly forum and happily share our experiences and pass on tips. I find most of the one make forums like a hive mind and anything out of the ordinary gets ridiculed or mocked! :(

    Feel free to get stuck into our many topics and discussions.
